So yes, the repair (to the bowels) I thought was happening IS happening.  Having to visit the restroom every day hasn’t happened for me for more than 20 years and I am still in disbelief.  I think all my Stem Cells must have migrated in this direction because  my walking is so poor and I am so tired.  But what a trade off.  The toxicity of not being able to clean out the body is horribly serious, so this is very important.  I will do everything in my power to return for another treatment and I believe the next thing to get benefit will be the walking.  The first treatment made a huge difference in my bladder and my legs became very strong, enabling me to stand for long periods of time instead of having to sit down all the time.  Obviously, this treatment has addressed another old problem.  And now, guess what is next…THE WALKING.  For the moment, I am using my cane a lot.  I hope that changes.

Well here we are, 2 months since I last received Stem Cells.  Let me tell what I have observed.  Last time I got Stem Cells in December 2011, I noticed that things in the…ahem…bowel department were getting better.  Honestly, it looked good but there was still room for improvement.  Well, I think the treatment in June actually furthered the repairs that were already happening and I see repair in that department.  A daily bowel movement is happening and I am thrilled and kind of surprised.  When I first applied to The Stem Cell Institute to have treatment, one of the first question the Doctor asked me was about my bowels.  This is important, because I guess it means I was quite progressed and they weren’t sure if they could help me.  The walking is still not great, at all.  If I had to make a choice at this point, I would chose the bowels because that has serious repercussions down the line.  And I still have at least 4 more months to see if I will get more repair.  I have noticed that I am slightly fatigued again, but I think I can attribute that to the heat.  I am going to start posting more often.  See you soon!

Just a little progress update:  I am just 6 weeks out from my last Adult Stem Cell Treatment for MS.  As always, patience is the key here.  The heat is a problem, but if I stay out of it I have tons of energy.  I am getting in about 30+ minutes of exercise per day in anticipation of that big moment when I say “Hoho..this is NEW”.
