  1. I am on the cusp of a knee replacement. After years of marathons, competitive tennis and basketball my meniscus has been worn away and the pain I experience is, according to X-rays, bone on bone. I would appreciate an honest discussion of stem cell injection as an alternative to replacement: cost, insurance coverage, bone marrow requirements, timing, location, etc. I am in excellent health and in good condition (I am a daily swimmer). I have been diagnosed with Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia, a condition that no longer leaves me anemic.

    I look forward to hearing something soon, as I am making decision soon.

    Thank you, Chuck Dorsey

  7. I am a 54 year old female who had a life-changing fall in 1999 leading to a tibia-talar-calcaneal fusion of my left ankle. Since that time I have wore out both of my knees, they are both bone-on-bone I am about 5 10 and very heavy set it is hard for me to exercise due to the condition of my knees and I would love to have this alternative if possible. I am a nurse and still trying to work and live in Nebraska.

  8. I am a 76 year old woman. I have two knees that are bone on bone (eaten up by arthritis. My left knee is the one that is barking. My right knee although also bone on bone has not given me trouble yet. I am very reluctant to have the total knee replacement surgery as I am an asthmatic
