My Exogen Bone Stimulator and TCM are working – just four more weeks!

You may have read my post from a few weeks ago when I first received my Exogen 4000 Bone Growth Stimulator. It’s been four weeks, and yesterday I visited with the podiatrist to review new x-rays.

One of the problems with broken bones is that you cannot see the signs of healing. My toe is still swollen, still gets red at the end of a few hours on my feet, and my toenail is just gross. So whether I still had (as the doctor called it) “mush” for a distal phalange or knitting bone, I still saw and felt the same big toe.

So we sit down, and he pulls up an x-ray that looks horrible – still lots of pieces. We were disheartened until the doc says, “This was your LAST x-ray.” Breathe huge sigh of relief. Then he opens the new x-ray.

What a difference! Only a few big pieces instead of many small ones, and those big pieces are knitting!

No pain on squeezing my toe, or on plantar/dorsal flexion. Still pain on weight bearing with flexion.

So, just four more weeks of twice daily Exogen and the boot (which I just had resoled).

I was told to bring stiff soled shoes (including left) to next visit on 9/27. So happy!
