Cazorla first suffered a blow to his ankle while on worldwide duty with Spain back in 2013 and, having missed six months of the previous season following surgery to correct a ruptured knee ligament, underwent another operation last December.
With an infection rampant, his doctor found that Cazorla had suffered enormous damage to his ankle.
Despite obvious concerns for Cazorla's career, Arsenal agreed a -one-year contract extension. He underwent left knee surgery in December 2015 and needed another operation a year later because of a tendon injury in his right foot.
"At that time I was still playing, they told me it was okay, the problem was that it did not heal and the wounds would reopen, become infected".
Cazorla required a skin graft to help fix the damage, with a part of his tattooed forearm now covering his Achilles, and also contracted a potentially life-threatening infection. His current deal expires next June and, at the age of 32, his ambition remains fierce.
"The medical professionals told me it was OK, the problem was that it did not heal and the wounds would reopen, and become infected", said Cazorla, before going on to explain how he sought a long-term solution to the problem in England but failed to do so and so made a decision to visit a specialist in Spain who outlined to the 32-year-old just how bad the damage to his right foot and leg had become.
Just the sight of him running on a pitch recently brought his brother to tears.
Trying everything to get back, and focusing on Spanish treatment, Cazorla has been living in a Salamanca hotel since July, whilst his family, with children at school, remain in England. Cazorla scored an impressed 12 goals during his first season with Arsenal, and won two FA Cups with Arsene Wenger's team. "Nobody trusted me but I do, I still do, although the pain keeps me cautious". "It has been extremely tough and testing for him", said Wenger. "Behind his smile is a strength you would not guess".
