ESWT Feb 5th

Posted by Monte on 2/01/02 at 11:51 (072178)

Hi just got scheduled for my first ESWT treatment for Feb 5th at noon. Dr Z is going to evaluate me and then perform the therapy in the mobile unit in NJ. As anyone can imagine...I am pretty excited. I will post after it is done and then along the recovery path too. Like all of us, I can use a prayer.

Are you scared? I would be, because it sounds like such a scary procedure. ESWT is supposed to help a lot, though. I will keep you in my thoughts on the 5th.

Definately not a scary procedure so...no worries! Especially in the capable and caring hands of Dr. Z and his staff...

thanks Judy...no one ever knows what to expect when something new is performed. But I know I doing the right thing by remaining conservative in my treatments. So...how are you feeling these days?

Monte,

That is great news! It sounds like you and I are fighting a comparable version of the PF monster. I look foward to hearing great news on your updates as I am considering trying the Sonorex machine available here in Canada. A prayer for you too.

And chickens like me, cluck cluck! I remember back in October when I was afraid to even try on a Birkenstock because they have such a hard ad bumpy surface, and my feet hurt so much. And now I like Birkenstocks very much.

Oh good! I didn't know about it not being painful. I am sure that it will help... seems like we've been hearing a lot of good things about ESWT, and about Dr. Z too. I think it might make a marked improvement in your pain.

thanks for all the encouragement and prayers. I pray for all sufferers all the time. I do look forward to it. A martini would be nice too. Works better than Motrin. I will post as soon as I return home on Tuesday. I know it will take time to feel the true results, but this is another proactive step that I have to take in trying to get myself healed. I sold one of my prize guitars so that I can do this. I know it will be worth it in the long run. I want to be able to take my twins on vacation next year. So...I have time to meet this goal. Any post ESWT suggestions? Stretch, night splits, taping?
