Two years and 5 months ago I had my last and final Prolotherapy session. I had
hoped that this would help me with my hip problems and also strengthen my
back. I did not want my back touched but the office girl insisted that I would have
to have it done if I had my hips done. I didn't think at the time that she was totally
untrained and also the doctor could charge me more if I had it done it along with
my hips as a seperate charge. I had a terrible episode after the treatment and it
was awful that I thought I was going to die. It was like someone had pulled all the
skin off my body and poured alcohol on it. It stung and was hard pain all at the
same time. The doctor who was out of the room would not even come back in
and he gave orders at the doorway to give me some pain relief of some sort.
The office girl administered this med and it still lasted about another 40 minutes.
The next day I was very weak and the day after that I could not walk. That is the
story, I still can't walk well and it is getting worse every week...
DON'T EVEN CONSIDER GETTING PROLOTHERAPY.
The doctors are not keen on working too hard or really know what they are doing.
The needles are large and long and after investigating, found many people in my shape.
