6 weeks post ESWT treatment....Swelling normal?

Posted by AndrewS on 5/08/02 at 22:21 (083152)

Is it normal to have swelling of the foot localized to the exact area of PF foot pain and which was treated by ESWT ? The swollen area is about an inch in circumference and is exactly where my pain is. Is this the blood rushing to the area? Is this post op traumatic swelling? Is this the healing process? Normal? Notice it mostly when doing heat/cold contrasts.

Normal. Could be from the hot and cold contrast baths.
