I had persistant pain. I am a diabetic and don't feel much pain in my feet so on a scale 1-10 I'd say it was a 5.  I couldn't do housework, walk, even driving was difficult. I was very relieved when my ulcer finally did heal and I have 0 pain.  Thank you Dr. Wishnie for helping for my ulcer to heal. I am so glad I didn't need foot surgery!Patricia
