2 Year Post Regenexx Update

2 Year Post Regenexx Update

posted in: AVN, Regenexx, Regenexx | 0

To catch up on my whole Avascular Necrosis + Regenexx journey, click here and peruse all of the posts.

I’ve been blogging my entire journey in hopes that it will help others make informed decisions about their AVN treatment. I searched for answers and was on crutches for 3.5 years before I found the solution to my avascular necrosis. My hope is that you don’t have to go through the same pain and agony I did. You’re NOT alone and there ARE options out there.


WHERE DOES TIME GO?!

Seriously. Where has the time gone? 2 years?! It’s been 2 YEARS ALREADY?!

I can’t even wrap my brain around that one. Wow.

Going from wondering what will happen before my stem cell injection, high up in the Rockies . . .

 

To seeing 60% Bone regrowth at 1 year out. (Read the whole post here) . . . 

 

Avascular Necrosis Femur Bone Progress Healing with Stem Cells

 

To walking, having no pain, and thriving every day!

 

My Regenxx experience and recovery have been nothing short of AMAZING.

In honor of my 2nd anniversary, check out my video and how I’m doing these days!

 

Fun fact – I still have my crutches out next to my bed. It may be weird and strange, but it feels comforting to me to see them and see how far I’ve come. I’ve risen above my challenges and now use them to help empower others. Who knows if I’ll ever need them again. It’s more than likely I probably will need them at some point with my psoriatic arthritis, but I have no idea what the future will bring.

Will I have AVN problems again? Will I have to go down the same road again? What does the future hold for my health?

Only God knows.

But one thing I DO know is that if something like that happens again, I have a plan. I know that I must empower myself to seek out the best information and best care that I can.

In the moment, 3.5 years seemed like eternity. BUT, looking back, I realized it was necessary. If I hadn’t had the time to calm my body, had the time to go on a healing journey and to really change a lot in my life – who knows if the procedure would have worked as well?

My sights are set on the present moment and living it the best I can.

Expecting and celebrating the miracles that happen EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Big ones, small ones. They occur all the time.

We just need to be open and mindful of them. Give thanks and honor them as they come.

Regenexx helped me by physically taking my stem cells and injecting them into my body, but I have to give myself a lot of credit too. Lifestyle changes, mental state, honoring myself – this all played a HUGE part in my recovery. There are NO quick fixes in health. We must be committed to ourselves to change and seek out our best lives.

That’s what I’ve done and my hope is for you to do the same.

Whether it’s through Regenexx or any other means. You deserve to live your best life – don’t allow any obstacle to stop you.

Never stop searching for answers.

Never stop looking for solutions.

And NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVERRRRR GIVE UP.

I’ve been asked NUMEROUS times about my Expect Miracles shirt and where I got it. A few years back, I bought it at an event in Pittsburgh yoga event. If you’re interested in it, click here for the original one that I have!

I do love this shirt and wanted to make a few changes to it. So I created a new version that includes “They happen every day” text on the back. The thing about miracles is that they happen SO often. Every single day we experience them, so we really do need to just expect them.

“Expect Miracles” has been a slogan of mine for a few years now. I have it written all over my life – including my computer monitor screen! Seeing that it’s an important mantra in my life, it made perfect sense to create a Teespring campaign in honor of my 2nd anniversary.

If you’re interested in purchasing one of my “Expect Miracles. They happen every day.” adorable tanks, check out my Teespring campaign currently running!

Who know’s what the next year will bring, but I’m WALKING into my 3rd-year post-Regenexx excited, happy, full of life and PAIN FREE.

Wishing You A Pain Free Day!
