Tonight i saw on 60mins tv show here, a woman diagnosed with MS who couldnt get the treatment she needed here due to beaurocrating crap, so they spent a fortune to fly over to russia and treated by a doctor over there very familiar with this sort of treatment. This woman got told she had an 80% chance of recovery at the stage she is at now, she has had MS i guess for a few years Long story short the treatment was a success. she underwent chemo heavy duty for 4 days, prior to this they extracted her own stem cells and treated them in some way then froze them for later use. Not long after the chemo treatments were finished they infused the stem cells. The doctor said 6-12months to get recovered. This lady prior was mostly in a wheel chair and used a wheelie walker most of the time, u could see she was in alot of pain and had incredible fatigue. Im unsure of the time frame after the treatment, at a guess say 6 months and she is back running along the beach with her hubby, exercising etc which were her passions prior to getting MS. It was great to see someone recoverying from such a crappy state and a real shame that the health system refused to do it here because its not generally accepted treatment. After doing some googling , this type of treatment is being done in many places and for the last 10 years in australia. I know its MS but i find these things very promising for us, one day these treatments will cross over to us too i think. Dr cheney from memory was trialling something like this but i can only imagine it being tied up in red tape, cost etc. cheers!!!
