Hi

What kind of study are involved with. It is my understanding that the ossatron FDA studies were started and finished over two years ago.

Now on to your present state of healing. Some patients will get complete relief and then have some pain return. The pain receptors have woken up .
Most healing will take place between week six and week twelve.

You can go on to complete healing and complete resolution of pain
You should rest, no bare feet. hot and cold soaks,
You may need some physical therapy.

Is there anything you can think of that caused the pain to start to return
Feel free to ask me any question that could be helpful to your resolutoin of pain and road to recovery.

DR. LISCH CALLED ME TO LET ME KNOW THERE WAS ROOM FOR ME IN THE STUDY PROGRAM. HE CALLED ME WHEN I WAS BACK HOME TO ANSWER QUESTIONS FOR THE STUDY. I ALSO ASWERED SEVERAL QUESTIONS FOR THE STUDY WHEN I WENT TO HAVE THE PROCEDURE DONE.I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING I'VE DONE TO IRRITATE THE FOOT OHTER THAN NOT STAY 100% OFF OF IT. DURING THE 1ST WEEK, OTHER THAN GETTING OFF AND ON THE PLANE TO RETURN HOME AND GETTING UP LONG ENOUGH FOR THE BATHROOM AND FIX MYSELF A LIGHT LUNCH, I STAYED OFF IT. THE SECOND WEEK, I WAS ON IT A BIT MORE AROUND THE HOUSE, BUT ALWAYS USED A ELECTRIC CHAIR AT THE STORES TO GROCERY SHOP AND GOT OFF IT AS SOON AS I GOT HOME. OTHER THAN I'M UP COOKING FOR MY FAMILY(SITTING AS I WAIT ON IT TO COOK) I DON'T BELIEVE I'VE DONE MUCH OTHER THAN THAT! IS THAT STILL TOO MUCH? I HAVE STARTED GOING BACK TO A DEEP-WATER EXERCISE CLASS THAT THE DOCTOR SAID WOULD BE FINE. I'M NOT TOUCHING THE POOL-BOTTOM AT ALL. JUST USING MY BIRKENSTOCK SANDALS OR ORTHOTICS TO GET FROM ROOM TO ROOM AT HOME. SHOULD I BE TAPING? IT DIDN'T SEEM TO HELP BEFORE TREATMENT. I STILL DO THE STRETCHING. ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS ARE APPRECIATED. MRS. E

You could start taking motrin 800 mgs one bid . Vioxx , celebrex. Is the pain as bad as it was before the ESWT treatment.

tTHE DOCTOR SAID NO ANTI-INFLAMMATORY MEDS FOR 1 MONTH AFTERWARDS. I HAD BEEN ON NAPROSYN AND MOST RECENTLY ,MOBIC. DUE TO THE LENGTH OF TIME I WAS ON THESE MEDS(18 MONTHS) ,.I HAVE DEVELOPED STOMACHE ULCERS AGAIN SO NOW I'M ON NEXIUM TO GET THAT HEALED UP! THIS MORNING THE PAIN HAS SUBSIDED SO FAR. NO, THE PAIN WASN'T ANYTHING NEAR WHAT IT WAS BEFORE TREATMENT

It is going to take time. Six to twelve weeks . Some patients will take longer

I had same experience. Had procedure done about a month ago. Had immediate relief, then and since have had pretty significant pain. Now using paraffin was about twice a day. Also now taking Celebrex. I hope Dr. Z is right and in 6-12 weeks I see improvement.

Give it time. The wax paraffin can hellp with the pain and incresse blood flow to the healing area. Taping is very good also
