All, would appreciate your advice: as a result of an ankle injury (a torn tendon) now in its 6th month my foot surgeon want to give me a PRP injection in the tendon, fit me for a boot and then physio to get it to heal. My Haematologist (who is an authority on APS, and who diagnosed me) does not want me to take the PRP shot. Her concern is that there is no experience with the consequences of PRP shots (a reasonably new technology) on APS. My ankle is swollen and uncomfortable. I am limping. Even though I wear a brace, it does not help the healing. I am leaning toward the shot but am worried about my hematologist's concerns. Any thoughts would be most welcome!
