I have a cartilage issue in my Patella (knee cap). My doctor told me to stay from Cortisone injections and instead get a PRP. He had explained to me that PRP is not covered by insurance but I did go for PRP and climbed Rainier (was allowed to go only upto 11,200 due to weather) after that.
Cortisone for minor knee cartilage issue
66 yo – lots of miles from running (no longer) and alpine trips. Had some knee swelling and pain, MRI shows some pitting in cartilage in limited area. No meniscus tears. Doc has suggested cortisone shot to help settle it down. Interested in your experience. Thanks.
