STEM CELL THERAPY vs. Joint Replacement
Hey guys, new here. 51yo white male, 2nd generation type 3 , my son is 10yo and has the exact same version (we had him tested in utero). 70+ orthopedic breaks w/ 10 ortho surgeries. In my family we only count the majors. Fingers, toes, ribs, compression fractures, dont count. Basically if you cant cast it we dont count it. My brother 61, now in a wheelchair, due to an undiagnosed sponal fracture that went unseen for 72 hours (he was in a medical coma)
So I KNOW that as my father always said, God loves me a LOT - I got off pretty easy (so far).
Recently Ive seen 2 ads for "stem cell therapy" instead of joint replacement for hips and knees.
Ive had 3 total hip replacements and 4 related surgeries, not a lot of fun, none of them went "as expected" I was told a year ago I need a new knee (right side). My mom who suffered from severe RA
all her life had 2 total knees and had ZERO issues, climbing stairs day 2 etc. However she was a tough old bird and wasnt letting ANYTHING stop her.
Has ANYONE had an experience with Stem cell therapy? M
My current ortho surgeon ios a good guy, very optomistic, but he's never seen bone "material" as bad as mine. WHen the took the 1st right hip out after 3 weeks he said they lifted my knee up and it just fell out on the floor. NO cohesion nohing.
so needless to say not looking t9owards any more surgery. Just looking for someone w/ some experience.
Thans for listening
