Recovery Time for Ossatron Procedure

Posted by JenniferJuniper on 2/18/05 at 13:58 (169360)

HI! I am strongly considering Ossatron for my PF, and my podiatrist tells me that it will be about 5 weeks of pain, and then it turns around. Is that accurate? I have noticed from the postings that pain can last up to 3 months. I have 2 small kids, so I need to recover as quickly as possible. Thanks for the info!

Reconsider using the Dornier.
1-No IV sedation only a local injection and if the doc needs more than 5 cc.(unless you are resistant to the local) of Lidocaine and more than 2 syringes run away as fast as your sore feet will let you.
2-less cost,can be done in the doc's office
3-and I think you will have less post op pain.
DON'T GET ON MY CASE EVERYBODY- THE FIRST 2 ARE TRUE THE LAST IS MY OPINION

Hi Vince,

The Ossatron comes to my docs office, and he only uses a local anesthetic, (2 shots per foot). Thanks for the info!
