Do they draw BM from the same spot? It must be sore after six drawings.

I just had a BMAC injection during an arthroscopic surgery, it didn't hurt as I was under general anesthesia, but the spot is being sore for 3 days already, wouldn't want to have same procedure repeated each week.

Btw, when they did the MFX procedure did they make the BMAC during the arthroscopic? If yes, did they use fibrin glue?

Thanks.

plaidwandering,

Are you staying in Baton Rouge past the 6 week mark to continue the PT protocol or return home?
2007 - partial medial meniscectomy
2010 - full thickness chondral defect & adjacent subchondral edema MFC.   Direct result of stupid partial mensicectomy from 2007.
2014 - Subchondroplasty, chondroplasty, unauthorized 2nd partial medial meniscectomy.
2015 - partial failure of subchondroplasty.

sites rotate around, I have had varying degrees of tenderness, some for a handful of days...others like this Thursday, I didn't feel at all

I have left, Friday was travel day, I still swell when not elevating, so it was rather plump by the end.

I will continue the PT protocol at home, and return late October for the next series.

Doing about 75℅ weight bearing so far. Fairly ok, still no more than minor aches and a few stronger throbs a day.

I got let go as soon as I showed up at work today, without even the courtesy of saving me the walk on crutches in.

Glad to hear you're doing well overall.

I just had my meniscus transplant repaired...and at Dr. Laprade's recommendation will be beginning to undergo a series of BMAC injections with Dr. Evans here at the Steadman Clinic as I have lots of cartilage defects as well.

Do you get some sort of anesthesia for every injection? at Evan's office they are done in clinic and they just prescribe a sedative/pain medicine for the procedure...which i'm worried might not be enough?

I had PRP and BMAC, but during surgery, and had my bone marrow drawn while still "awake" but under IV anesthesia.

Hope things keep improving!

What kind of work do you do? That really sucks!

small business server stuff... I was probably leaving at the end of the year anyway, so not terribly upsetting, just have to trim the budget some

bit of a hiccup yesterday. the PT up here at home is apparently really aggressive. I was full walking about 10 minutes in the session, and I got sore in the joint after which is still here this morning. I was excited and not tracking/thinking about the time up, but it was clearly too much too soon. That's about as much as he wants me to be walking period before 3 months are up.(a month from now)

Hopefully I don't have to back off for too long, but even heavy partial is tender currently.

So I'm good for a few minutes walking. As long as it is well spread out I am ok to do it 10ish times a day.

It feels slow of course, and I have to remind myself that it's expected to be.

So past three months mark

Walking,. But very limited

Definitely still worse than pre-op there were some issues with the PT at home who decided upon themselves to go away off of the protocol without telling me. I eventually figured that out after talking to dr. Broyles and him asking what was going on we were doing angles and loading far in excess of what was called for

Still have had some progress in the last month the, just not as . much as most

Back in baton rouge for four month series

MRI is showing cartilage over drill sites, 75-90% thickness already

It also shows some inflamed scar tissue, which is probably what's bugging me the most. Hopefully it will settle down/finish remodelling on its own
