I've just returned from a three day procedure at another hospital. A pretty stressful three days spent in bed. 250 Million (yes a quarter of a billion) stem cells were injected into my back via an epidural catheter.
The aim is to retard the degenerative process associated with MND. Retardation hopefully will be achieved by using the right antibiotics (Ceftriaxone), injesting good quantities vitamin E to neutralise 'free radicals' and using Creatine to promote muscle growth. The stem cells will hopefully regenerate damaged motor neurons.
I am curretly on high protein diet to ensure sufficient energy is available for stem cell growth.
I am feeling slightly stronger but no immediate gains experienced just yet. Time out this weekend, we might visit the National Art Gallery if my energy levels are up for it.
They are really pumping the stem cells into me on this tour, which is good, even if the needles are a bit of a drag. Please stay tuned for more updates love Michael
