Title: 5 years post-op osteochondral allograft transplant
Post by: keithap on October 26, 2016, 11:06:24 PM
Been some time since I've been on here but wanted to share my success story.  5 years ago I had an osteochondral allograft transplant on my right knee.  After quite a lengthy rehab I can say I am 100% pain free during the day with all normal activities.  I can exercise and perform light exercise including weights, biking, swimming, and elliptical with no issues.  I can also paddle board and hike for unlimited distances with no problems.  I have not tried running because 6 surgeries and god knows how much money later I don't want to push the envelope.  Considering I had pain everyday for close to 5 years I am just happy being back to normal.  Would be happy to share more details for those interested.  You can reach me at [email protected]  or my website www.physiquetherapy.com
