I hear that they are making great inroads for a combination of Chemo and Stem Cells to cure this the world over. I also heard that the stem cells by themselves dont work.
I continue to investigate that features benefits and downsides...and there are risks. Here is a link to a an Australian lady that was cured. There is a facebook following since her op done in Russia a few years ago https://www.facebook.com/MovingMountainsForKristy/.
For me it is a matter of weighing up the risks versus the benefits and how bad the MS is getting.
Totally appreciate your angst when your daughter is so young. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Too Risky? The worst of the 28 day process was the Filstagram shots to make my stem cells reproduce. She's younger than my youngest, I really hope she changes her mind.
I did HSCT. Started in late April and was transplanted on May 8th. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. Did the 6 month follow up & no progression what so ever! Some symptoms have totally disappeared and others getting better by the day. Just reached my 7 month post. If you can do it, do it. The only thing I regret is not doing it sooner. I haven't done any MS medication since February 2nd. My walking got so much better I am now trying to jog. If you Facebook look up Richie's MS Journey for updates.
