Update on my condition - Not so good?

Posted by DavidW on 5/12/05 at 07:46 (174802)

I had ESWT done in January of this year. Around 12 weeks or so, the pain became so minimal, it was almost a miracle - I even walked a mile one day with very little discomfort. Unfortunately, last week (16th week post ESWT) my feet began hurting with avengence. I did do a little bit of biking and cooking one day, but not so much (to me) that my feet should have started hurting so much again. I hope that this is only temporary (oh god please). For now, I am taking it easy, stretching, icing, and hoping.

Anyone else have this kind of experience?

Thanks in advance for any input.

This happened to my husband. Around the 9-10 week point he had about a week and a half of steady relief...kept getting better. Then two extra hours at work and he's back now to about as bad as before the procedure. (he's at 14 weeks now.) We are looking at having a second treatment.
