*****Dear Uncle Steve*****

Hi Uncle Steve,
Thanks for adopting me!!! Since we are family now, tell me your foot problems. I went to an Orthopedic Surgeon Fri. for his opinion, he said 4 months is too soon to be thinking about surgery, I agree! (My Pod wanted to do it). I've been advised to seek ultrasound treatments, the Orthopedic said it sure wouldn't hurt. I'm going to go in for 2 weeks, having treatments 3 times a week. Sure hope I get some relief. I have been a good girl, I'm staying off my feet as much as possible while I'm off work for July, my main concern now is getting this foot healed, I don't want to go back having the same problem.
It's so great having people who understand to talk to.
Thanks for being there!!!
Oh, by the way, my family all calls me Necee,
Denise D.

Well, Denise, your uncle approves of your plan! A couple of weeks of PT & rest are reasonable. Do take it easy.

I've been limping along for about 16 months now, but gradually improving. I've been to Dr. Z for 2 ESWT treatments per foot & will probably be going again soon for a 3rd. This takes patience, but you WILL get there!

Be good...........Steve
