With all the stem cell research news out over the last several years and now the new phase-I trials on ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, Spinal Cord Paralyses and other diseases from companies like Neuralstem, Brainstorm, Geron Corp etc. and so does your wife or yourself have a gut feeling about when you think it will be mainstream medicine to where i and others who are paralysed (my feet for 14 years now) may recieve treatment at a hospital or the VA for vets like myself to where we may get well enough to go back to work or recreate etc. ??
I'm realistic in that it will be a number of years if the FDA were to ever approve this process but since i'm 46 if i believe that within 10 years or less i could be helped then i may start going back to school (online) for my career or future employment however if we're possibly looking at 15 to 20 years out etc. then i'll probably forget schooling and start planning for my retirement years and let the younger people (20 or 30 somethings) with this disease worry about stem cells ??
If any thoughts as i and probably other lurkers reading this would appreciate it very much
