ESWT

Posted by Keith on 12/20/02 at 22:59 (103675)

I will be having ESWT in two weeks on both feet. Can anyone tell me what to expect from this treatment. My doctor has used all other forms of treatment except for ESWT and surgery.

Each person;s experience is a little different, but the treatment for me was not that bad. I needed to rest (no work or walking except for bathroom!) for 1-2 days afterward. After that, the pain reverted to the pain I had before ESWT. I also had both feet done. Good luck and let us know how you make out. Mar
