Post ESWT Treatment

Posted by Dawn H. on 4/04/01 at 09:05 (043545)

I just received ESWT treatment yesterday in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Today, my heel has no pain, although I've been told it will hurt at sometime, get better, then may re-occur and then good. What has surprised me, from my waist up to my neck...my body feels like I was hit by a MACK TRUCK! Muscles are tremendously sore. Woke up from anesthesia with a major headache also. Has this been a side effect for anyone else?

Hi Dawn,

I'm glad to hear that your heel is better, but sorry to hear about the side effects. Did your doc give you anything for the pain? It's not too late to call him. I was wondering which type of ESWT you had, and how long did you have PF before the procedure?

Thanks

Today is MUCH better. I did take Vicodin for the pain and slept really well last night. I can function today and so far the heel has not been in any pain. I suffered for 2 yrs. prior to this ESWT treatment.

My doc used the OssaTron.

ESWT on 4/3/01.... it has been 2 weeks now, and I have been amazed at the improvement! After a week touring DC from morning till night for 4 days, I was expecting a lot of pain, but my foot is healing wonderfully, and there is only minor discomfort once in awhile. So far so good!! : )
