The Dr Centeno recommended me to take first the PRP for cervical and C1 instability and if it did not work, I should do the stem cell. I know my case is very complicated and unfortunately the PRP was really bad for me and I am now afraid of trying the stem cell in the C1 even though I do not have much options. I was very sick before the treatment due to a car accident whiplash and another prolotherapist from Fort Myers that racked my neck very badly due to poor protocol putting it in a place with unbearable pain and I do not know if any doctor will ever be able to help me now.
I was in an all vegan raw plant based based whole food diet with no cooked food before the treatment to help me control inflammation and help with the pain so I could work and drive. I made the mistake to add some cooked food as part of my diet a couple of weeks after the treatment due to corona virus lockdown and also to avoid forcing my neck so much with all the juicing . Unfortunately the PRP was too weak to cause healing, but it still created a lot of inflammation and when combined with the inflammation from my injuries and the inflammation from the change in the diet, it created a lit of new symptoms or increased substantially existing ones . It made the burning pain on my limbs, shaking in my left arm, neurological pain in my neck unbearable. Things become so bad that I could no longer drive, type, or walk more than a few feet and very strong pain on my vocal cords. The C1 instability and herniated disc on a few locations in the cervical worsened with the PRP substantially not only with more pain and shaking in my left arm, but overall feeling of paralysis on the body from c1 and a lot of difficulty to move the left arm after the treatment.
