by whitewave » Jun 15, 2019 So as of Monday my knee was totally fine,; I cancelled my ortho appointment. Then Tues-Today it hurts so bad I want to cut it off. (Stress fracture tibia, completely destroyed right knee. Metal allergy, so not thrilled about TKR). DH brought up the idea of stem cell injections to try. Our friend (my son’s godfather’ is a physical medicine and rehab doc so I called him and he said he’s do it for free (lol) if I found out what product for him to learn about and inject. Obviously, this is attractive lol and I do trust he would learn and do it correctly etc). The “real” stem cell treatment harvests your cells from your fat or bone marrow. There are docs in the state who do this, but I believe it’s 5-7k per knee. Anyway, has anyone done this in the USA or abroad (I understand outside of the us, the studies have been going on longer and are showing definite therapeutic benefit where the us studies show meh results)? How much was it? How did you do? Etc. Bonus points if anyone can name the product. Lol Thanks in advance!!
