PRP - Platelett Rich Plasma Injections

after giving a pint of blood, then you have to give fat. they practically liposuction it out. i asked them to take more, but they didn't need it and it hurt anyway.
they mix the blood and the fat into a magic machine and then they put it into syringes and pump it deep into the joint or tissue in question. it felt like a lead weight. and, it hurt.

four times around the shoulder. the front was the worst, with all the soft tissue. sort of like a burning, twisting feeling. it's made worse by the pressure. now it's all very sore. they are not shy in telling you that it will hurt ALOT tomorrow.

i estimate that i will be crabby tomorrow.
i'm just sayin'.

Crane did my knee with a similiar procedure. It healed my 2cm tear in record time.

it's all good. i'm not nearly as bad off as i could've been.

the combination of this and a cold and a stomach bug has me pretty laid out, but the shoulder is not too bad.
