Currentlyl, I am in a wheelchair, and in a recent visit to my neurologist, he told me that he's not sure what I should try next, because, as he said, there isn't anything else to try.
The visit left me angry, frustrated, and confused, and I am at a loss of what direction to take with regards to my treatment.
I am very interested in reading about any experiences, tips, advice or information any of you may have.
The new Multiple Sclerosis Center at Hadassah provides innovative treatments and is operated by neurologists who are world leaders in research, as well as rehabilitation physicians and advisors in the fields of urology, ophthalmology and social work.
A treatment developed at Hadassah, still in the research stage, has been tested on 25 multiple sclerosis and ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) patients. Professor Dimitrius Karussis, a senior neurologist at Hadassah and the director of the new Multiple Sclerosis Center, working in collaboration with the University of Athens, and Professor Shimon Slavin, the former director of the Department of Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) and the BMT Laboratory at Hadassah, discovered that it is possible to remove stem cells from a patient's bone marrow, to isolate these cells under special conditions and to generate over 50 million cells within two months.
