I can't Believe noone tried that regenexx on this board
« on: November 07, 2008, 09:43:52 PM »
I really can't believe it.  It must be too good to be true, but I keep reading all these articles about the procedure.  The last one I read was about a professor from Pitt that had it done and he just completed a triathalon.  It is a little expensive, but from where I sit the loss of work and stuff like that would make it worth its while if it worked, even 50%.

I am seriously considering it, but I really want to hear form at least one person who tried it.  ANYBODY?

I asked my doctor about, and he said it might be worth a try, but he said there wasn't any proof that it worked.  I am just amazed with the amount of people, and the variety of problems noted, that noone has given it a shot.

anyone care to comment?

There is a whole thread about it in the Knee Arthritis - Injections into the Knee section

here's the link:

Maybe you should refine your search parameters a little bit more!

lol.  i did run a search, I'm not sure why I didn't find this.  I actually posted on that thread before the woman who tried it got on there.
Wow.  then it is for real.
alright i'm off to that thread, thanks for highlighting this.

at first glance it looks like people got pretty heated.
not what i was hoping for.
