I’ve been having knee pain for several years. And I’ve been getting injections in the knee and they seem to last maybe about 3-4 weeks the most. After that the pain would return in my knee. And I was told by several doctors that I needed total knee replacement, because I have bone on bone. And the pain would probably not disappear. And the pain was, on the scale from 1 to 10, sometimes was maybe 9. It was not all of the time, but it did come and go. Especially at night when I tried to sleep the pain on my knee was excruciating. At that times it was just unbearable. There were many things I couldn’t do with having this pain. I live in a house that has steps and it was very difficult to go upstairs and come down. I had a fear that sometimes my knee would give out and I would fall. Several times I did fall and scratched my face.

You live with it but you don’t want to live with it and you want to know what your options are. Rather than having sacred I decided to do some research. I found out that stem cells are relatively new, but it is a big thing now. So I decided to come to this group and let them talk to me about stem cells. The doctors set down and explained to me the different types of treatment. They told me what they could do and was they do in this particular office. I was wholly impressed. They weren’t pushing or anything like that. They sit down with me and went over the entire procedure. They also told me that we are going to do what they call “a dry run”. If that was successful, maybe I was a good candidate. I had just a great experience listening to them. And the procedure, I found it to be very easy. Just a little discomfort. So far so good. I haven’t had any pain and I was able to do things that I couldn’t do. I could walk down the steps with ease.

I’m very thankful to doctors for what they have done to me. I’m pleased, happy and I would wholly recommend to my friends or anyone else. People who are not thinking about having the procedure, they have to try it. I think it’s a lot better than going under the knife to have total knee replacement. I have talked the people who had knee replacement. And my experience comparing to their experience is much better.
