Its four weeks now since I underwent stem cell treatment at the XCell Center in Cologne, Germany.
Fortunately, the fatigue and body aches mentioned in my last entry have subsided. Some of the other MSA-related symptoms that seemed to get worse right after the treatment have improved as well – namely balance, dizziness and sleep disturbance. All in all, I’m pretty much the same as just before the trip to Germany.
As noted by the doctors at the XCell Center, it may take up to six months before meaningful improvement is observed. To help things along, I’ve resumed my modest exercise regimen of stretches, weights, and stationary bicycle. I wish the weather here in SW Florida would finally cool down (its still 90 and humid during the day) so it’s safe to walk my overweight little dog, Chico.
I’ll post again in two weeks and will keep doing so every two weeks until all these MSA-related symptoms are just a bad memory. In the meantime – good luck to MSA’ers like Eddie (& Pat) who will soon take the trip to Germany in the search for a healthy, MSA-free life.
