What to Expect After STEM CELL Injections
STEM CELL procedures are usually done as an outpatient procedure, meaning there is no need for an overnight hospital stay. Most patients should expect to walk out of the clinic and resume low-impact activities in 2 weeks. We recommend ice to the hip area (Bone Marrow biopsy area) and injected STEM CELL area 2-3 times a day for the first 3 days for 15 minutes at a time.
Some patients have reported experiencing mild pain for the first 48-72 hours post procedure. In most cases, this is due to the absence of their normal anti-inflammatory and pain relief medications. After this period, most patients experience a gradual decrease in pain, with some experiencing sustained pain relief. Soon after, patients may see improved function.
