I want to know if anyone here has had a stem cell treatment? When? Where? How advanced was the MS? Results?
My dad's being treated with Avonex and Solumedrol and its seems to be stopping the progression of the diseased. The possible diagnosis at the time is a malignant form of MS since he's been getting worse since February and no signs of recovery.
After a month of being treated with Avonex and Solumedrol, we see tha he has regained vision of his left eye, and some feeling on his left arm and leg. This is only a little progress but it could be a indicator that we are on the right track. The Dr. told us to keep going for another month with this treatment to see if there is any additional progress and to investigate on stem cell treatments. He says that this could be our only hope of a full recovery.
Right now we can't afford a stem cell treatment, but we would like to investigate more on this and try to see what our chances are.
After reading a lot on the web I only see that this has been successful in patients that are at an early stage of the disease.
Thanks for the help,
