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?
