The Last Chance Saloon

Have been suffering from osteoarthritis for three years now – a common ailment amongst folks my age with a history of rugby, football, tennis etc.  Knee replacement beckons – but before that, The Last Chance Saloon.

Yesterday, an experienced expert Doctor in this field – Michael Wolff from Arizona’s top sports clinic, injected stem cells directly into my knee joint to promote the repair of the damaged cartilage.  A non-invasive, non-painful procedure.  Ten minutes, then onto The Stairway to Heaven (I hope!).  Michael has predicted a 50% chance of a 50% improvement in less than three months.  24 hours on, all feels good.  The inflammation has already reduced and the magic serum is attempting to stimulate my own body’s natural healing abilities to come to the aid of the party!  I’m hoping for improved joint functionality, reduced pain and the ability to walk/run freely again.

Fingers crossed.  Knees knocking!
