Title: A2M- Anyone tried it yet?
Post by: mulberrysdream on September 07, 2016, 06:28:01 AM
I'm undergoing a series of BMAC injections and had a test done for the A2M enzyme..which came back positive. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this. It sounds fascinating and wonderful if it works the way it is hoped to. My current doctor who I am doing BMAC with feels strongly that I should try it in between BMAC treatments or a few months down the line. My surgeon (via email) has instructed me to hold off on it for now as "in orthopedics, sometimes too much of a good thing can be bad"

I'm very interested in the anti inflamitory aspects of it...as I have a long awful history of swelling. In addition to the extreme OA in my 25 year old knee.

Thanks in advance!
