Will any of you who had success with ESWT please tell me how long it was after the procedure until you STARTED to improve? Also, please tell me of your instance of ESWT not helping (if, unfortunately that is the case).I had ESWT on both feet with Ossatron in September and have yet to see any improvement.

September is too early to tell. I did not notice any improvement for 8 weeks.

Lawrence -
After 3 weeks I had a couple of days with suddenly less pain. Walking carefully around the house ONLY. Then I screwed it up, probably by bicycling too hard, and set myself back to worse than where I was when I went for ESWT. Now I'm crawling out of that pit, far too slowly.
But those 2 days were something. It happened suddenly. Hope you get something like that to keep your hopes up.
