Joyce discusses her progress after mesenchymal stem cell therapy at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama.
Interviewer: Today is July 28th, 2017. Can you give me your full name and diagnosis?
Joyce: Yes. My name is Joyce Adair and I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Interviewer: So, this is your second treatment?
Interviewer: Could you tell me your experience after the first treatment?
Joyce: Well, after the first treatment last year in April of 2016, I noticed a big change in my energy. I was able to finally go out and do things with my family and friends that I had been unable to do for years. I noticed a change with my pain level. It didn’t go completely away but it did get better and I was able to cut back on some of my medications at that time.
Interviewer: And you also mentioned that you stopped using a wheelchair?
Joyce: Oh, yes. I wasn’t using the wheelchair. I was able to walk on my own – not using a cane or anything at that time. I could put full weight on my legs.
Interviewer: We just finished your second treatment. Can you mention if you have had any improvements this week?
Joyce: I’ve had a lot of improvement this week. When I came on Sunday, I was in terrible pain. I was even unsure if I should come or not because I was afraid to travel on the plane with the amount of pain that I was having in my right leg. But once I had my first treatment this week, I noticed a big change in my pain and I also have noticed a big change in my energy. I have a lot more energy and I can tell that it’s definitely getting better.
Interviewer: Thank you very much.
