castingPosted by Chris R. on 5/08/03 at 10:33 (118095)
I have had pf for about 8 months now…. Last time I went to the doctor he suggested after a month if no relief that I be placed in a cast. I didn't have insurance when I was seeing that doctor. Now that I have insurance and my symptoms have not improved. I am ready for the cast but have to start from scratch with a new doctor that is on my insurance list. I have never responded to cortisone shots in the past and would like to try a cast as a last resort before surgery. If I tell my new doctor on the first visit to continue with a cast will he comply saving me from endless visits starting over? If not what can I do?
