Finally got this bone growth stimulator today. I am supposed to wear it as close to 10 hours per day as I can.
So, to bed, if I can keep it from coming off, I am pretty much a left side sleep and its my left food, which means my foot and the unit will be right against the bed.
Will try it tonight and see what happens, it velcros on and I can wear a sock over it or an ace bandage.
I have only had it on for about 15 minutes now, I cant feel anything, she told me I might feel some heat once the blood flow begins to return to the area.
But there is no kind of vibration or tingling such as with a tens unit.
Now here is my problem, I cant walk with it, so I have to turn it off and take if off when I need to get up, which I already can see I will soon.
To turn off the fan, cause its getting cold in here now and shut the front door and turn on the kitchen light.
This is going to take some getting used to and planning to be able to sit for long periods of time with this thing on my foot.
I intended to get some grocery shopping done today, but upon walking into walmart and seeing that they were so very crowded and as usual maybe 4 registered open and people lined up as far as the eye could see, I turned tail and ran and came home with a Sub and yogurt, will try to get to my grocery shopping before the weekend is over.
And so now I am gonna put on my pajamas and watch some tv and relax the rest of the night and finish my housework tomorrow.
Will keep updates coming on the progress of my foot.
