Good luck with your knees, James. We think the things we do when we are young will not hurt us but years later it does. |
Here is what the FDA says about Ozone Therapy.
FDA has never approved ozone generators or ozone gas for treating any medical conditions. . They continued to sell the unapproved medical devices, even after FDA informed them several times that FDA approval was necessary to market medical devices or medical gas in this country.
Ozone Therapy is a treatment I have not heard of until today. I would go by what the FDA says. That is just what I would do but if others want to do differently that is okay with me.

|jj777746||Hi Herb & All, the procedure took about 2 & 1/2 hours & yes I was awake all the time. Will have more info next Friday. Btw, the Surgeon actually looks at an xray machine screen as he works but I don't think any dye is used. James.|

I am happy for you that the procedure went well, and hope that it is complete success. Did it take long and were you conscious during the operation? |

|JOAT||Major bummer. Think positive tho. A few weeks back my leg got infected. And they weren't talking shots, they were talking amputation. Fortunately treatment has worked, so almost finished with that. Now just need to find a way to keep the knees going. Good luck, it could have been worse.|

|old coasty||I sympathize with you. Like Charles I have 1 original issue knee and a replacement. Also two replacement hips. The knee is a recovery PITA compared to the hips. As a result, I'm firmly in the Shots solution as long as I can.|

|Cherryville Chuck||I have one artificial knee and one that is on the waiting list. Some days it's not too bad, others I have to use a cane to get around. I sympathize with you and hope it works. The bionic one is pain free now at least.|

|harrysin||Hi James, I do hope that the procedure is successful. Both Marlene and I suffer with painful knees, in my case it's bone on bone and while Marlene's isn't as bad, the pain is. She recently had a knee Arthroscopy and after a week or so was infected with Septic Arthritis from which she almost died and spent five weeks in hospital and is now understandably worried about any further procedures. A description of your symptoms will be appreciated, also of course how effective your procedure has been.|

Hope everything goes well for you. I'm facing right knee replacement sometime in the future. When is up to the doctor. |
Story- I met a friend at church one Sunday morning. I estimate he was in his early 50s. Asked how he was doing. He said his right leg was bothering him. I stated it must be old age. He replied that the left leg was the same age and it was OK!
