Question for Scott R.

Posted by Stephanie S. on 3/14/00 at 00:00 (017291)

Scott...I live in the Montgomery area. Is there a certain pod. or
ortho-surgeon that you would recommend? I've been using Dr.Hester.
Pain still a little better since the steriod shot...going on Monday
for a bone scan. I take it 'Bone scan' sounds worse than it actually
is. Little nervous about it. But at the same time...glad more tests
are being done. Stayed up late the other night...messing around on
this (addicting) computer. Read some more of your info. I really do
like this site. Thanks for putting it together. I've looked up all
kinds of info on the internet about PF/heelspurs...and your's in my
opinion is the most informative. Besides...I really like the message
board.Ha Ha Stephanie

Hello fellow Montgomerian. (I always feal a bit sympathetic when I say that - the others in the board probably can't know what it means to be from Montgomery). Well, anyway, bone scans are a breeze. Nothing to it. Easy. Don't freak out when you find out they are injecting (or was it a pill? I can't remember) a slightly radioactive dye into you. More than likely, they won't find anything. Recommended doctors? The rheumatologists Jakes and (sp?). The only bad thing about them is that they make you wait at least an hour in there waiting room. The podiatrist Dr. Stern is pretty cool, but he can't tape worth a damn. Don't bother getting a custom orthotic from anyone locally. Call me and I'll explain the insert stuff. If you wear a size 10 1/2 mens, you wouldn't believe my collection you could borrow from. Most of them hardly even used, ha ha.

The foot thing is bad, but if you're a montgomery native like me, my heart REALLY goes out to ya.

And just how am I suppose to call you? I only know you by
Scott R. Man!! What a coincedence!! You probably went to school
with my husband. I marriad a Montgomery Native. More than likely
you know my family here. So ...am I at the right practice? Still
trying to get the referral back to Hester...change of insurance..
had to see pcp again before I could get back to him. The pcp seems
to think he can help.He's the one who ordered the 'bone scan'. You
want to go with me and hold my hand? Ha Ha...Yeah ..they said that
I'd have to wait an hr or 2 before the x-rays were to be taken. Am
I remembering right? Still sounds a bit scary. Had several friends
recommend Dr.Stern...even my dentist. Poor fella!! After I had been
sitting in that chair so long..I commented don't laugh when I get
up...I'll hobble around for a while. He knew exactly what I'm going
through. He said he also had PF. Took him over a yr to get rid of it.
He used Stern ...by the way. Wish I could take you up on the orthotics. Unfortunately ..we don't wear the same size.Darn!! I've
got a perscription for the orthotics...but haven't done anything yet..
waiting on the insurance to approve..in hopes they might cover some
of the expense.Probably not..but figured..it's worth a shot. Still
can't get over...we live in the same town. How wild!! So...I take
it Lek's Taste of Thailand is familier to you,huh? Yeah...those
Montgomerians. Please tell me..you didn't vote for Bobby Bright?
Ha Ha..sorry..I'm a big Emory Folmar fan. Well, here goes..here's
my e-mail address... (email removed) Please...really...direct me
down the right path. Chasing 4 kids with sore aching feet is for the
birds.!! Stephanie
