Hi Everyone,

I have undergone an outologous stem cells transplantation in Sofia, Bulgaria 10 days ago. Does anyone know when the first results will come? Thank you!

Kalin, No, I don't know but I wanted to have you keep us informed and up to date. Several people have talked about stem cell work but, no one that I know of so far has had it done. You are the first I have ever heard a response from. I sure hope it is Your Cure. Sheryl
Strength and Warmth,

Kalin,

 

I wish I could answer your question, but as Sheryl said - You're the first person in this forum that we know of that has gone through this procedure. So this is very unknown territory. We do have some personal stories here on ISN that you might read and find an answer. As always, I'm sure it's different for everyone and that there are several variables in determining how fast your body responds to the transplant. All of us here want to know how you progress and hear about your experience. I know several people are considering a sct so your personal experience will be invaluable to us once you feel up to you.

I wish you a fast and long-lasting recovery.

I'm curious, when you say outologous, is that Adult Stem Cell Transplant and did it come from your own body elsewhere or someone elses?
