Urinary problems are frequent but not intense. Movement coordination is pronounced. Speech problems occur "from time to time" and are connected to memory failures. Sexual dysfunction is "complete". Fatigue, energy decline and depression are high. Muscle stiffness and leg pain is frequent ("almost always"). Double vision is not frequent but it is intense when it happens (usually causes headaches)
PATIENT CONDITION: After stem cell treatment for Secondary Progressive Ms, the patient had no side effects and feels energized. Physiotherapy (Lymphatic drainage, Massage, EMF therapy) eliminated almost all the stiffness in legs. Leg pain is almost completely gone ("only dull weak pain"). The patient is very satisfied with lack of memory or speech problems while at the clinic. Her energy levels significantly improved as well as movement coordination. She walks only with crutches while at the clinic. She feels no significant change in sexual dysfunction. The patient psychological state improved but depression is not completely gone. She had one prolonged occurrence of double vision, but it was less intense than before stem cell treatment.

Treatment center: Belgrade Date: 27. July 2012
Patient condition: 3 months after Stem cell treatment, the patient is very satisfied with improvements in some of the multiple sclerosis symptoms: Speech and Memory problems are eliminated. Muscle stiffness and leg pain is "bearable and quite manageable". The patient used her wheelchair only twice during these three month - both instances due to fatigue, rather than inability to walk with crutches. The least improved symptoms are urinary problems and sexual dysfunction. Energy levels are "high enough", but depression is sometimes still present (not frequent) and double vision occurred twice ("less blurry").
FOLLOW - UP #2
Treatment center: Belgrade Date: 19. October 2012
Patient condition: 6 months after the treatment, patient subjective review of her own condition shows improvement in Vision (one, very short occurrence of double vision), Muscle stiffness and leg pain are completely eliminated. Movement coordination improved. The patient can walk with one crutch all the time and seems quite stabile on her feet. Urinary problems and sexual dysfunction still persist. Depression is mild but present.
Based on the patient's evaluation on the levels of improvement of her condition (improvements of the symptoms are graded 1-10) we can conclude that her overall condition significantly improved (average rating of 6.20) immediately after stem cell administration. First follow-up evaluation showed additional improvements in all of her symptoms, especially memory and speech problems (average rating of 7.58). Second follow-up evaluation showed additional improvements and complete elimination of some of the symptoms (pain, muscle stiffness). Final improvement rating is 8.16 - patient's condition improved 81,6 % 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

She was pleasantly surprised, as her symptoms improved and reversed drastically. Her ability to move, walk and think much better than before assured her she made the right decision by coming to Swiss Medica.continue
