"So ...this happened today," Nakamoto wrote. "I'm struggling to find the words. I've been trying to make a comeback for almost 6 years now. I've come close a few times. But I kept having difficulty with my knee. There's not much to be down with a grade 3 lesion on a meniscus besides stem cell therapy. I didn't have $30,000 so I did the best that I could, but I still always came up short. And then this happens today. I'm still in shock. Thank you @joerogan. See you soon Dr. Riordan!"
