Stem Cell Treatment
I am so happy for you. I work for a company that performs stem cells treatments for patients with varying diseases. What types of cells did you receive do you know? Were they umbilical cord cells? How many were you given and how were they administered? IV or LP? Were you given growth factors and markers in addition to the cells? Were you given a combination of Apheresis (your own cells) with donor or Apheresis on it’s own?
I have seen truly amazing things happen to patients who have nothing else left to turn to. One of our patients with aggressive leukemia came to us with only 4 months left to live, we were able to extend his life by an additional 4 good years.
This is still a relatively new area of medicine, nor is it an exact science; the long term effects are not yet known, please be cautiously optimistic with your recovery as sometimes the effects of the cells tend to drop off a bit. Also, as the body is made up of many, many millions of cells the cost to replace all of the damaged neural cells would be astronomical.
Keep up the good work on your recovery and often times diet and vitamin replacements play an important role in helping that along. Our patients are not allowed red meat or dairy products (due to the hormones and antibiotics), no alcohol or cigarettes incorporated into a low fat diet plan will also help maintain the health of the new cells.
