A Minnesota woman, who was the first bone marrow transplant recipient at Mayo Clinic in 1963, returned to Rochester more than five decades after her procedure to visit the doctor who performed the transplant.
The rapidly evolving field of regenerative medicine—including stem cells, 3-D printing and bioengineering, among other technologies—is helping repair, and even regenerate, body parts and tissues damaged by disease, trauma or age. “Regenerative medicine is not trying to create the bionic man but to harness the healing powers of the human body and buttress them,” says Andre Terzic, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Regenerative Medicine in Rochester, Minn. That means treating chronic or degenerative ailments and replacing failing organs.
My name is Howard and I have been Diagnosed with NASH. I'm not a drinker and my Dr. said it probably started out as Fatty Liver disease. I've been listed for two year's for liver transplant due to cirrhosis of the Liver. When it first started out I was sick all the time and in the hospital 4 time's. In November of 2013 my MELD score went up to 23. But since then I've made lifestyle changes and my meld is down to a 14. I still fight with the chronic fatige but feel pretty good all thing's considered. Has anyone else out there experciened this also ?. I almost feel like it's the calm before the storm.

In a 100-year-old home in Rochester, originally built for one of Mayo Clinic's first surgeons, is where Alyssa Sandeen spent 5 months of her life.
We first told you about Sandeen in the summer of 2013, not long after she got her second heart transplant. She got her first at age 8 in 1998, a heart that lasted 15 years – but barely.
Heart attacks in 2011, 2012 and 2013 landed her at Rochester's St. Mary's hospital for 6 months waiting for a donor. Then, just as she had done as a little girl, she moved into the Gift of Life Transplant House in Rochester for a few months. It's a place to stay, as doctors want their patients nearby for a while.
Now, Sandeen is opening up about her new heart that's fully of new love.

Hello All: My name is Rick Richards I have come to a crossing point in my life, one I knew that was going to come but not this quick. I have a question if it in the wrong forum please direct to the correct one.
I need a Kidney transplant (Kidney forum??) But my Dr said that it will not happen because I am too old and a Type 2 Diabetic. Is that true? I am 55 years old, only slightly over weight 206lbs and I am 6ft tall and very active, meaning I assist in the care of my four grandsons, and I have the biggest paycheck. The thought of going on Dialysis, scares the crap out of me an I love my job I am at, The thought of going on disability is abhorring, I would rather go end it all. Someone please tell me that my Dr is wrong. I already have 3 family members lined up to see if they are compatible matches. These are my immediate questions at the moment, I have a ton more in my mind, I look forward to your response.

I had an aortic valve transplant 3yrs ago and have been experiencing symptoms like being on a slow adrenalin drip. This occurs at times during the day. Somewhat related to anxiety or maybe stress? Is it medication related? rjf
