I had laparoscopic surgery on my left knee in 2002 fr a torn meniscus. It
worked out very well for years, of course I’ve much older, do the pain has

like electrical shocks when I walk, the pain just grabs me. I wondered
what PRP was also and if it would help me.
I had a hemorrhagic stroke 20 years ago in my right thalamus that has left
me with a horrific 24/7 pain condition, oh the pain is terrible! the few
medications I have do not help much but I’m thankful to have them. Then
Because of a 90 percent blockage had a stent inserted in my right coronary
artery and then Scoliosis surgery from my T3 to my L4-5 and into my hips.
I’m s walking scrap metal- pain from that surgery 9 years ago is another
whammy to live with…..so I’m a walking robot in pain…..lol. My best to you
and hope you’re doing well. Sandy
