FOLLOW - UP #2
Treatment center: Belgrade Date: 16. April 2013
Patient condition: Patient had no relapses during these six months. Ms symptoms improvement grades show stagnation of improvement in fatigue, tingling and weakness, but she is only dissatisfied with amount of fatigue. Some symptoms improved greatly: Vision ("just a little blurry now"), Dizziness (only when standing up), Bowel problems (rare), and Depression - the patient seems quite cheerful. Sexual dysfunction "seems to be improving". Back pain is almost completely gone. The patient is generally satisfied with the results of the multiple sclerosis treatment with stem cells.
Based on the patient's evaluation on the levels of improvement of her multiple sclerosis condition (improvements of the Progresive relapsing Ms symptoms are graded 1-10) we can conclude that her overall condition significantly improved (average rating of 4.70) immediately after stem cell administration. First follow-up evaluation showed additional improvements in most of her multiple sclerosis symptoms (average rating of 6.16). Second follow-up evaluation showed some stagnation but significant improvement in some of the symptoms. Final improvement rating is 7.25 - patient's symptoms improved 72,5 % by her own assessment.

For me, since I got back after my 2 weeks of having my treatment, within 2 days of being home speaking to friends and family around the world, they all noticed the difference in my speaking, cognitively and I was able to listen and integrate with conversations with my family at home.
A wonderful experience, a wonderful care are these very caring people, yes.continue
Everything is done naturally and pleasantly here. Actually I do not feel sick, it is the most important thing – during these 12 days I haven’t felt sick.
I didn’t have the impression that I was treated like a patient. I was treated like a normal person, it is true I take medicines, receive infusions and still have some pain, but I never felt like I was in the hospital.continue
