shock wave treatment

Posted by gayle h on 9/25/01 at 17:54 (061542)

I have suffered for more than 6 yrs. with heel spurs in both feet. you can not see them other than my xrays. i can hardly get up out of a chair after a days work. i have a condition called factor V leiden. simular to protein c resitant. i am afraid to have this procedure done and run a risk of a blood clot. i have never had a clot and i am 47. i am wondering what i should do, and what are the risks.
