Dear Richard, I did investigate all the sites available for stem cell transplant and eventually chose Germany because I knew that their technique would be good and sterile. Plus, usually, the Germans do things to last... cars etc,,,
As for my diet, no, I have not changed a thing: I still eat meat and have one glass of wine per day... occ. two. I don't like the feeling it does to my balance.
I wish you all the best with Dr. Simka and hopefully the progression will stop for you. Take good care, Carole
Thanks Carole...assuming all goes well w/ Dr S., he will likely ask for a followup abt 2 months later, I may just go for a double whammy and slip over to Germany at the same time for SCT....I've had 13 years of nothing but 'please be patient' from neuros, and now it appears that I have some degree of control over my future...I am lucky that I can afford them, there must be many out there who cannot...in Canada at least, I wld hope that there is rapid research that brings these procedures to all who need them, regardless of ability to pay.
Cheers, and continue your improvement
