April 8 Site Injections
Here is a diagram of the sites where stem cells will be injected into my different muscle groups on Wednesday of this week. There are 60 in all, and two bags of of stem cells will be used. Fortunately, I'll be under anesthesia for this procedure so it should not be at all painful. I am told the following morning I will be able to participate in my normal physical therapy. Although I've seen some slight increase in strength, I understand in muscular dystrophy patients, the stem cells need time to replicate themselves, as well as continued therapy in order to see real results. So I don't expect to see any "incredible" changes by the time I leave here - but I will know that new building blocks have been put in place and it's up to me to develop them.
