    Stem Cell Therapy

    I did some searching and surprised there is not much discussion, especially the last couple of years about Stem Cell therapy. I would like to hear some real life reports of how/if it worked and if its worth $$$

    It works, but later, 10-15 years after the stem cell rejuvenation procedure, many people are faced with cancer. What percentage of cancer patients from the total number of those who have undergone stem cell therapy - I do not know. But I personally would not risk it.

    Ive never considered anything like that as a side effect but considering everything else that is going on I can see the possibility.

    I also talked to my physical therapist about it and he said he knows a few people who have stem cell therapy and prp. He said only 1 person had any significant improvement but due to her age and time since injury it may have been more of just natural healing process because it was not an injury that was several years old.

    I also know someone who had the prp and it did nothing for their tennis elbow.

    Yeah especially due to $$$$ I am holding off and going to try another route. Hopefully finding someone to prescribe HGH again.

    I've been looking into it. I have all kinds of injuries from my time in the military. Docs explained some risk of a tumor, but benign. It's very rare, and I think it was mostly from a different style (umbilical cord, your own fat, and your own bone marrow).

    It is very expensive, but seems like really very little risk... other than not working.

    For instance, one of my knees is trashed. There is barely enough cartilage for me to qualify for stem cell therapy on said knee. I'm debating, because it's a chunk of change, but I'm not holding out much hope for it working on that knee.

    I had PRP in my delt for a torn infraspinatus. It definitely helped, imho.

    Good to hear. I hope others will chime in with real life experience like yourself. You cant trust any of the online reviews anymore since there are millions who fall for the work from home scams getting paid for fake reviews.

    I’ve had it done for an arthritic knee. Depends on who you go to with what type of stem cells they’ll use. If you’re in the United States, the only thing they’ll really do is use your own bone marrow stem cells. They’ll drill into your hip, suck out the bone marrow, isolate the stem cells and re-inject back into your problem area. The doctors insist it will take 6 months to 2 years to really notice relief. As much as I wanted this to rejuvenate me and my knee, ultimately it is a very expensive placebo. I’ve also had loads of PRP injections over my career in various areas of the body - I found these are very effective for musculature injuries however they do stimulate much more scar tissue buildup in the injection area.

    Now, all that being said, the real deal stem cells are in Panama and shit where there are no rules. That’s where the American doctors using umbilical chord (true embryonic) stem cells are injecting. I wish I could speak to this but that also terrifies the hell out of me.

    Hope that helped.

    Yeah if I do decide to do it I had planned on making a vacation out of it and being a medical tourist. Ive done a fair amount of research but of course $$$$ is always an issue but even with surgery its about 8k out of pocket after deductible and other things that never seem to be covered.

    I need something that has around a 90% success rate because I am that guy no matter how simple something should be or how many people have had success I will need it done at least 2x if not 3 for it to come out right.
