On April 2nd, I flew to San Diego, CA. from Boise, ID. in route to the Renovation Advanced Therapy Center in Tijuana, Mexico, to receive stem cell treatment for my Multiple Sclerosis. My boyfriend, Chris accompanied me on my journey to Mexico. We were driven from the airport in San Diego to the clinic in Tijuana, where we received a wonderful welcome by the nurses and medical personnel. Dr. Lopez arrived a little later and she was attentive, professional and knowledgeable. After some blood tests, we were served a delicious meal specially prepared for patients. After meeting with her, I felt very confident and liked her very much. They arranged for a short trip to the beach with both nurses keeping me company. My MS made me feel physically weak, but I was very happy, and optimistic emotionally. My surgery took a couple of hours, and it went very well. I was told that my stem cells were very active, healthy, and high quality. That made me feel very happy. After my stem cells were transferred back to me, I was wheeled back to my room. When we arrived there, I stood straight up, from the wheelchair, and walked, unassisted, across our room to sit on the bed. I felt no pain, no body aches, and my lower back, and legs felt strong. I hadn’t felt that good or had been able to walk that good, in a long time! I was able to sit up straight, with no feelings of weakness. Next, I was given two injections. One, on each side that I think, consisted of more of my stem cells. We enjoyed lunch, and dinner and my nurses were wonderful to us. They were always so attentive and watching over me. I had 24-hour nursing care, the whole time that I was at the Renovation Advanced Therapy Center. Ever since my stem cell treatment, I have been able to sleep for 8 hours a night. I don’t have insomnia, anymore. I have regained my equilibrium, and my inner strength, too! The next morning, we got up early, I got washed, and ready for the day. We had a good breakfast in our room. Dr. Lopez came over, to check on me, and to say goodbye to us. We took pictures, with her, and my wonderful nurses, Blanca, and Alma, and we all went down to the reception area, together. Their driver was there to meet us at 10:30 am to drive us across the border to the San Diego airport, to catch our return flight home to Boise, Idaho. I had no problems walking, unassisted, through both airports. I felt so amazed and so thankful that I felt so good, so soon. I know that I still have a few months for my stem cells to repair the damage, caused by my MS, but I really feel confident that they will because I already feel so much better! I will always be thankful to God, to Dr. Lopez, and to my nurses, who have really given me a second chance at living a normal life, again! They all treated us, like family, and we will always think of them that way, too! I pray that Stem Cell treatments will be accepted by health insurances, soon, so everyone, with MS, can afford to get treatments. Sharon Mander
