FlowerAminoFlow: Anybody have any experiences with this?

Posted by mcmurf2 @mcmurf2, Oct 22, 2019

My OT just told me about this new injection. I have a full thickness rotator cuff tear I will be having repaired Jan 8th. Was wondering IF this would be worth having before surgery? Has anybody had this injection?

Hello @mcmurf2. I did some quick research on FlowerAminoFlow. From what I found, it looks as though it is typically used for wound care to promote tissue growth rather than scar tissue and is frequently used in conjunction with surgery. Would you mind sharing a bit more about what your OT discussed with you? Did your OT suggest this would help with surgery or perhaps it was worth exploring as an alternative?

Here are a few additional conversations that may help prepare you for your upcoming rotator cuff surgery:
