A Cast for a Cure?

Posted by Renee on 6/21/99 at 00:00 (007961)

I have been told 6 weeks in a cast can cure PF. Anyone know about this? I have had PF for 3 years, 5 cortisone injections , countless oral steroids and anti-inflamatorys and want a cure so bad I can't stand it!!! My doc has not suggested any therapy or cast, only shots and surgery. Isn't it ironic that we are told weight affects PF but we are given steroids that can cause weight gain? Happy Hobbling!!
