update on Carmens eswt

Posted by Carmen on 5/19/02 at 19:02 (084613)

Doing well. Actually I seem to be doing REALLY well in BOTH feet even though only the right was treated. I seriously I have found my recipe for getting well and I think it's a combination of ART, rigid orthotics and for the right foot....eswt.
But my pain level at the most is a 3 after a full two days chasing toddlers, (literally) and walkign and standing at the zoo (concrete all over), lifting heavy children up and down up and down...I am really pleased so far. This is the most activity I have done in a long long time....and I am none the worse for wear.
cross your fingers for me that I didn't just jinx myself.
:o)
The eswt foot has some sensations that haven't been there previously....and when I stretch the hamstring it feels a bit tender in the foot..but otherwise....great!

Carmen,

Sounds good! Are you only going to do the right foot, then?

Wonderful (and hopeful) to hear positive results. Please continue to keep us posted as time goes by so we can find out when you are completely well.

will do!! thanks for your kind words...
Today is not a good day for either foot. too much going on this week with the kids and running around.
Will go back to ART this week and get back to normal.
