Has anyone else heard outcomes of Stem Cell treatment, for good or bad? I'm considering pursuing this even after taking DocSarah's concerns into account.

Thanks!

Hi Brad, yes I've read all there is to read about the treatment and possible outcomes. I even contacted many Professors studying and conducting research in the UK, but they were all wary

I was sent a link to the article below

sciencepolicy.duke.edu/content/perspecti...s-benefits-and-risks

Vets are using Adipose stem cells quite routinely to treat dogs with arthritis and other ailments. I was told the stem cells were sent away to Scotland - treated in some way - then given back via IV. All carried out with the strictest confidentiality!

I believe it comes down to the individual and how they feel, no one can advise you because the outcome is unknown and everyone with Arachnoiditis has a different story to tell about their health problems.

Wish you all the best, Helen

Helen, this is so helpful! I'm evaluating whether to undergo a Stem Cell Transplant from Dr. Malan in Scottsdale, AZ. The claim to have treated many arach patients and are treating about 1 per week now. So they should have some data they can share besides testimonials - at least, that's what I've requested.

I'll update here as well as in the FB groups I'm in for arach. So promising, yet incredibly scary to undertake. I'm here because of a botched LP, so I have been down this path before...
