Insertional Achilles green light!

Posted by John M on 4/06/01 at hrmin (043799)

Dr. Z,

I have the green light to go from my surgeon this weekend (after 2nd surgery to 'debris' achilles - PT says I have full strength and motion in ankle. If problem comes back, I will probably make the trip for EWST. I just feel that I am too young to be sidelined from physical activity. I have to say, this has to be the most informative site on the internet and I wish I had known about it a year ago so I could have given EWST a try in lieu of surgery. Lastly, is EWST covered by insurance in any case or is the cost out of pocket? Thanks again
