Extremely Tired of the Pain

Posted by Jeanine Gravette on 11/30/00 at 12:13 (033876)

The pain for me is unbearable and I'm tired of waking up in the morning not being able to walk without pain. For anyone who has this problem I'm sure you understand when I say 'it burns, it pulls and you hate to walk on it first thing in the morning'. I was diagnosis with having plantar fascities in 1991 and I have tried all types of treatments. Probably everything that is available besides surgery. Now I'm 30 years old and can't take it anymore. My reasoning on waiting this long has been severals things. 1) being in college 2) hoping that it will go away 3) doctor told me it couldn't get any worse, so i was just dealing with the pain 4) the pain went away so i thought it wasn't going to come back 5) getting cut on the bottom of my foot didn't sound all that great and it still doesn't truthfully. I'm really afraid but there's nothing left for me but surgery.

I'm ready and the good part is I trust my doctor. I'm going to Florida in June with my future in laws and there is no way I could make it in this condition. Hopefully, I can get scheduled for surgery before the end of the year. But, until then I guess I'll keep rolling my foot on a tennis ball under my desk.

Janine--

Have you checked out the information here on ESWT? It might be a non-surgical option for you. Check out the ESWT page and message board if you haven't already. Dr. Zuckerman does a lot of ESWT, and you can get information from him or from Kate, who works in his office.

By all means at least try the ESWT. The healing time is so much quicker than surgery and Dr. Z will later to the surgery with no additional cost if the ESWT doesn't work. I think I read that.. I had it done and haven't regretted it at all.

Whatever you do, don't even consider surgery until you've looked into ESWT.
There is no reason to cut into your foot when there is a completly non-invasive, non-surgical option that can give you tremendous results. Please check out the ESWT board and see our results.
If I can give you any information about ESWt, please feel free to email me, or call my office.
But do yourself a favor, and look into ESWT, the results, recovery and outcome are far better than traditional surgery.
