Get another doctor!!!Posted by BJC on 3/09/00 at 00:00 (017050)
Helene, you have more options! Please consider another doctor, whether it be a podiatrist, orthopod, or physiatrist. You should not have to suffer so much pain! I know I am in the minority, but I had surgery 7 weeks ago, mainly because my lifestyle was being affected. So far I have had an excellent outcome, and spent an hour working in the garden yesterday - an activity which caused me a lot of pain before. Ask a lot of questions about your treatment, be it medication, exercise, casting, surgery, etc. You should be able to find some excellent drs. in NYC. My thoughts and prayers are with you!
