Re: I Want To Walk Again!

: On 10/24/02 I had an operation on my right foot to correct a tendon problem. I can't tell you the medical terms for the surgery. He made 2 incissions, one on the outside of my foot to insert a bone wedge to lengthen that side of my foot and then an incission on the inside of my foot to fuse 3 bones and create an arch using a plate and screws.

: On 11/05/02 I lost my balance and fell on my foot, causing a slight change in the alignment. my Dr felt that it would still heal OK. But, after continued non weight bearing and physical therapy I continued to have significant pain at 12 weeks after surgery. It was determined that one of the fusions was not taking and my Dr recommended that I have an additional surgery to add bone to that joint to force it to fuse.

: On 12/23/02 I underwent the recommended surgery. Now at 6 weeks after that surgery I am still having the same pain as before. I am using a bone stimulator to aid in the healing.

: I can tell that my Dr isn't happy with my progress and I'm getting frustrated. I just want to walk again.

: Any info you could give me would greatly help.

Dear friend,
Do you tried ozone therapy or electrotherapy? Buy the book "Cross currents" and "The body electric" and read on the explanation of using electrotherapy for the regeneration of TOTAL limbs... (look for these books at amazon.com)
