I am in the states. Are you in the states or UK?
My OS does plan to take tissue samples for possible ACI in the future if the OATS is not successful (this to keep from having to do another surgery). I read some about the chondrofix. I'll as the OS about that as well.
My hope is the OATS will be successful and I'll move forward from there. I have a list of questions to go over with the OS before I commit to anything. He's not pushing the surgery. I'm looking for a solution with positive results. I have too many years ahead of me and I want to wring as much out of them as I possibly can.
So, you had ACI before OATS? How do you feel about chondrofix? Have you looked into or talked with your OS about Denovo NT?
I know my insurance will cover the OATS, but I'm not sure it will cover Denovo NT or ACI unless I go through the OATS first. You know—jump through all the hoops in a predetermined pattern
I just thought that I owed it to myself to really check into other peoples experiences and opinions.
I notice a lot of people reviewing posts, but not a lot of people posting.
Thanks for the input.
