Painful heel

Posted by Debbie E on 10/11/02 at 11:21 (097318)

I am in a cast due to heel spurs in my left foot. This is the 2nd cast. My doctor says I am to keep it on for 3 weeks. (the last one was on for 4 weeks.) After the 3 wks they x ray and put another cast on!! Does this seem right!! The first cast came off and the pain came back the next day. Should I get another doctor? The pain is unbearable... or would ESWT be the next step for me. HELP!!!
