PRP RESULTS

I received a PRP injection Feb 23, in my left knee hoping for positive results to ease my discomfort, mainly due to arthritis but also contributing to the discomfort is a torn meniscus and a bone spur! It would take 3-6 weeks to fully realize any benefits! My doctor did advise me before I paid $800.00, my insurance did not cover the procedure, that it may or may not help! Unfortunately after 2 1/2 months as far as I can surmise the injection did not help! How would my knee feel if I did not receive the injection? The discomfort is still present! This is not to say it would not help you! Every case is different, every person is different, every knee is different!
