Massive stroke/seizures-stem cell therapy

Posted by @mac12151981, Jun 24, 2017

I will try to keep it short. I’m 35 yrs now. At 17 yrs I had my first of many grand mal seizures and was getting so bad that I had to be babysat just to go to the bathroom. We found out I was a candidate for brain surgery so at 24 yrs old I went to UM of Michigan to have it but when they put the grid on my brain cause a massive stroke/alot of seizures in a coma for 2 months. I don’t have grand mal seizures anymore not I have problems with my balance/weak on right side/can’t smile & my memory is bad and seems to be getting worse.

Was wondering if anyone has has stem cell therapy for nervous/brain and if so how much was it/what type of stem cell did you have and did it work?

Hi Missy, welcome to Connect.

Another member, @bobbie7, asked about stem cell therapy during a webinar we hosted last year. At that time there was limited evidence that supported the use of regenerative medicine for neuroregeneration. However, I encourage you to contact the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Mayo Clinic. They offer a Consult Service for patients and can tell you about the availability of approved stem cell therapy at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere and for what conditions. Furthermore, you can choose to add your name to a database to be notified when additional studies and information become available. Here’s more information and contact details http://mayocl.in/1Ag7duN

Missy, I think you might like to join this conversation about PICS.

Thank you

Hi Missy @mac12151981,
I thought I’d check in and see how you’re doing. Did you call the Regenerative Medicine Consult Service? I’d be curious to hear what you found out.
Also we’re looking for people to talk about aphasia on this discussion thread and wondering if you might have some experience to contribute http://mayocl.in/2sztFaj

I look forward to hearing from you again.
