I was very skeptical, but was desperate and after a lot of research and consultations at 2 different clinics, I decided to give it a try. I thought, even if it doesn't work, it doesn't seem like there's any bad side-effects with these therapies (except wasting a lot of money for nothing if it doesn't work).
It's been 36 hours since I got my injection and the pain was a lot more than I expected the first 24 hours. I could hardly even walk on it. Now it's about 50% better. I was told that this was normal for the first few days. I will report again in about a week.
What's everyone else's experiences been?
there are some threads here with some info, just use the search function with my name "Drak" and you can find my experiences.
I don't know if your doc's suggested it but I would suggest a second PRP shot in another 3-5 weeks. I had both Achilles done and the one I had two shots on has done way better than the one with one.
