How many tries did it take to get your custom orthodics a good fit?

I've read getting custom orthodics to fit right doesn't alway mean they work the first time - often need readjustments. My doctor makes his out of some kind of foam that squishes down over time. So, they are not the hard, rigid kind.

For those of you with custom orthodics, how many tries did it take to get them right? The nurse says this usually makes a big difference for people with PF - getting the custom inserts. It will take several weeks for me to get mine.
