Back to work after ESWT

Posted by Carolyn F. on 6/03/02 at 23:57 (086220)

I am planning to have the ESWT treatment done and was wondering if anyone could give me feedback on how long a rest they took before going back to work. I work on my feet for 8 hours a day, and Im trying to get an idea of how much time I should rest before going back. I want to give my feet the best chance possible to get better. Espescially if Im going to spend $2500 buckaroonies. Thanks for any info.

Hi Carolyn:

I would recommend that you rest the following day. Your feet will feel sore. You will recover quickly. Best of luck !!!

Mar, This would be for one foot at Dr. Zuckermans office in N.J. and then its $1000, for the other foot. I live in Pa. and it will only be about an hour drive for me.
