Its ESWT Time!

Posted by Susan P on 8/13/01 at 11:03 (056558)

Well the time has come. I have suffered for 9 painful months with PF. I have exhausted all conservative methods to heal myself. I just finished 4 weeks of physical therapy. I learned alot of good stretches that have helped ease my pain. The pain level is still not tolerable, I will not live with this. I have an appointment this Wednesday with Dr. Z. His office is about 2 hrs from my home so I consider myself to be one of the lucky ones to be so close to him. I have an 11 am appt. for evaluation and if I am a good candidate he will perform ESWT afterwards. I truly hope I am. I am nervous and hope that the pain will be better after treatment and not worse. Please everyone wish me lots of luck. This mom with 3 sons who will be going back to school is September needs to be able to take care of her boys. I will let you all know how it goes. Thanks Susan

Hi Susan,
Well, best of luck to you as you get 'The Treatment'.
I know that you are very anxious to get this over with so that you can get on with your life. I wish that for everyone here on this board. Some of us are not as fortunate as you to live close to Dr Z. From what I read, he is a very caring and compassionate Dr. So you will be in good hands.
If your listening, Dr. Z how about a Mobile ESWT unit!
Anyway, good luck to you Susan. Keep in touch and let us know how it goes.
I will be praying for you.

That is an awesome idea!! Not only would more of us have an opportunity to get EWST, we'd get to meet Dr.Z!! Then Dr.Z and his wife could also use that as an opportunity to see didn't parts of the US and have many mini vacations!!!
Really good idea Necee!!!
