Currently going through stem cell transplant

Postby binder » Fri Jun 16, 2006 1:49 pm

Hello everyone, I am currently in the middle of my stem cell transplant for MS in Ottowa Canada. I currently have a hickman line attached and have been through the first cemo sessions along with the Neupagen shots for my collection. I am currently waiting for my final cemo and the reinsertion of my stem cells which will start in July. My strenghth is almost at my baseline again and I will try to respond whenever I am out of the hospital. I am looking forward to getting my stem cells back and having this disease progress no further. I would love to hear any positive stories of remylination as this my ultimate goal, any suggestions on diet, supplements ect would have to be supported by my doctors but they have no special restrictions and are very supportive. It is nice talking to everyone again, see you soon. :lol: :lol:

Hi Binder
THank you for your post. This area really interests me. I am sorry that I will just have questions for you. I am new to MS and my hopes and dreams are in TOvaxin and Stem cells at this point. I also live in Canada and so anything I can learn about what you are doing would be greatly appreciated.
Is what you are doing part of an experiment? How long have you been diagnosed and what kind of MS do you have? what are the costs involved? How many other ppl have done this before you? Are you getting your own stem cells? I am gussing that you are from the shots.
I wish you lots of luck and it is great to hear that you are getting your strength back. Hope it all works for you. I hvae great faith in stem cells.

Sh8un,

Here is a news item about the treatment Binder is receiving. In my darkest moments I take some hope from the improvements seen by this woman.
