Hi all,  tomorrow I am having Meniscus Repair and Bone Marrow Aspiration on my right knee.  Surgeons won't do TKR yet as they think still too young.  So going this route to let them fix the tear and to do a stem cell injection in hopes my knee will grow new cartlige.  I know I will be fine but praying that surgery will be a sucess in the pain goes away and I grow cartilge.  I would appreciate everyones thought and prayers please.
