Hey Scott, interesting but would be expensive if the injections were to become a regular thing.
I have no cartilage left in the middle of my knee joint, so it's basically bone on bone with a few lose bone fragments floating around in there for good measure.
This last 6 months I've been unable to work, walking or going up or down stairs is very difficult & painful.
They are going to try & grow some new cartilage if this doesn't work they've told be it'll be a replacement knee. So I'm hoping the cartilage will grow back.
My biggest concern is whether or not I will be able to return to work as a carpenter, working at heights pitching roofs, joisting etc. it'll depend on how much mobility I regain at the moment I cannot even straighten my right leg & am starting to get pain in my left hip.
