Having just completed my 10th laser treatment today, I am so happy and relieved to report that the improvement in my foot has been tremendous. I would say that my foot is back to 95% normal. More important than the percentage is the fact that I have been able to resume my walking and hiking regimen with only very occasional slight pain when hiking in a steep downhill direction. My daily walking at work and home is totally back to normal.
Also, in the beginning, I had quit exercising due to the extreme pain, and , as a result, immediately gained weight. As I have been able to resume my exercise program, I have begun to lose the extra weight.
Thank you (and Natasha) so much for giving me back my active lifestyle!
