ESWT and bunions

Posted by Sara on 7/24/04 at 18:08 (156213)

I have a heel spur on one foot. My Dr. is planning to do the ESWT procedure. I have had bunions removed and as a result have screws in my feet. My Dr. assured me that the ESWT would not be a problem with my screws. Any comments?

The ESWT is performed sufficiently far away from the bunion joints that the screws should not be a problem.
