Re: Can Spring Bring New Hope?
How are you doing?
(I have been unable to access the board for a few weeks because my computer crashed. For a while, I can only get online using my husband's laptop when he brings it home from work) till mine is fixed.
I am also interested in any news regarding help from stem cell research.
There have been a couple of specials on Public Television about DBS, and they were good. In our community, we have found more people who have PD, and two people who have had DBS and they are doing real well. One person had the implant for 5 years, had wonderful results, and then because of scar tissue growing around the implant he had to have it redone. He went to Emory & the same team treated him the second time and he's back home now doing great, with a new implant, working every day and keeping a full schedule of appointments.
He's 64 and had PD for about 10 years.
