Patient with Multiple Sclerosis - before and after the treatment

Client: Leslie

Country: UK

Before: November 2015 SCT for MS

Q: Can you please tell us what is your diagnoses?

A: Multiple sclerosis.

Q: Can you tell us more about it? When was it diagnosed? When were the first symptoms? How did they look like in the beginning?

A: Okay. In 2006., from my memory… I was fishing and noticed with my left hand that I was unable to tie a fishing hook to nylon. I asked a friend “Could you do that for me?” So I went on, we left the evening, and I then made the appointment in the hospital in England. I went for nerve conductivity test, which came up…. There were some problems and then I had a MRI scan, which showed up on the back of my brain there was lesions. The neurologist said that I was MS and that he would like to see me for 15 months, for further tests and bits and bobs. I carry on working 2006, 7, 8, 9, 10… My wife unfortunately was diagnosed with brain cancer and has 8 weeks to live. And the shock of all of that was the first time for me… It really ticked my MS off proper, with symptoms and problems. So I carry on working up until the unfortunate death of my wife and looking after my two children. Holly was 12 years old and Luke was 14. But slowly, slowly, slowly, little problems started to come forward and then I started to ask myself questions… I really must find somewhere that I can get this sorted or some help. My neurologist in the hospital in England was absolutely a complete and utter waste of time. I found out about Swiss Medica, which was fantastic. And just to receive help, something, help, was a step in the right direction for me. I’ve been here now for 2 weeks and every step of the way, every attention to detail, Swiss Medica have been absolutely fantastic! So that’s where I am today. Considering that was nothing offered, medication or nothing offered to me in England, if I was asked a question when I first got here, you know, and it’s a normal presumption from anybody coming for therapy / treatment, you know, you want a list of things to be done. Actually, if I can just get my spark, just a little bit lighten, I’d like to go on with my daily life. I enjoy my living, I’m not in a wheelchair and it doesn’t bother me if I got to make some inroads to do what I can myself because that’s the only option. I’ve got a good sense of humor and as long as I’m around to look after my daughter and son, I just think that any little inroads in the two weeks that I’ve been here having the stem cell treatment is a massive step in the right direction for anybody out there, with any doubts at all, just ask, just look, Swiss Medica are fantastic people and… That’s it!

After: March 2016 check up after stem cell therapy

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.

So I found myself 4 months later back in Moscow having a check up with everything and everything seems to be going well. My balance has improved so much, when I went back within one week I started with a gym and initially within the first week I had the standard membership.

Within 2 weeks I went back to the gym and I had the full gold gym membership and I’m currently working out 5-6 days a week in the gym, on the walking machine, rowing machine, weights, cycling, rowing, so everything is good on that.

I’m not as fatigued at all as I was, I seem to, If I could, sleep every sort of 4, 4 and a half hours in the day, and now I’m quite happy to get all the way through the day with things.

My optical neuritis, literally the day after the second operation, which was the small stem cells from my tummy, the optical neuritis has seized and it just goes on from strength to strength as from there.

Don’t be afraid to come. If you’re in England, I was offered no help at all, my neurologist offered me yoga and pilates and even the MS nurse said, the second time I saw her, that I seem to her like a very proactive sort of gentleman that needed to move on with things.

A wonderful experience, a wonderful care are these very caring people, yes.
