According to the Lincolnshire Echo, the female - known only as Mrs P - underwent surgery to remove corns on her left foot in 1983 and has suffered from "debilitating pain" ever since.
Mrs P had surgery at the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston - an institution now managed by the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust - and errors made by professionals there left her with a shortened foot.
However, after consultation with a GP in 2006, she was told her initial procedure had not been necessary and further surgery to correct the issues caused was recommended.
This operation relieved a lot of Mrs P's pain, but she then decided to seek personal injury compensation for her ordeal and has now been awarded a damages sum of £100,000.
