One Year After Stem Cell..

It’s been a little over a year since I had a stem cell transplant of my own stem cells. My body has responded really well to it. I had my one year follow-up appointment that included several tests to record my progress. I’m happy to say that all went well. I was confident it would since many of my symptoms have improved.

Prior to making the major decision to have the procedure, I’m not going to lie, it was scary. Enduring the time away from home and facing the many treatments was going to be the biggest challenge of my life without knowing for sure if it would work. I had to spend a lot of time praying and meditating on my decision to move forward. Looking at the present day, I’m very happy I chose it. It was absolutely the right move for me, especially when I weighed the only other option left for my condition. 


Now the office in Chicago has asked my permission to share my experience with others facing the same decision. I gave my consent and have already spoken to a few. However, I will never tell someone that they should or should not choose the stem cell, that is a very personal decision. I only share what my experience was and the results that I have had.


All my symptoms have improved:


  • Stamina 
  • Pain (my pain level has dropped to more than half of what it was.)
  • Spasms have decreased by 70%
  • Tight band feeling around my trunk area has lessened by 95%
  • No issues using the restroom.
  • No treatments since the stem cell in April 2011
  • NO ATTACKS (I haven’t had a relapse since prior to the stem cell in Dec 2010)
  • Sensation and strength are coming back more and more which indicates the damaged nerves are healing.



The stem cell wasn’t a magic wand, I had to keep focused and positive to direct my body through Divine assistance to heal. Going through the treatments were difficult and so was the recovery. I could only concentrate on progress. Now that I’m doing incredibly well, I still keep my attention on progress, gratitude, and Divine guidance.

I will be going back to Chicago annually for four more years to record my progress for the study. Next year, I will see some progress in my MRI results. It will probably show the healing of the many lesions on my spinal cord. My neurologist in Chicago believes a great possibility of most, if not all, gone considering the great progress I’ve made. The most wondrous outcome this has created for me, is to receive positive news every time I visit doctors now and for that I am extremely grateful.
