    Off to France

    Finally, have everything in order and my son and I will leave Sept.18th for
    one month of laserpuncture treatments with Albert Bohbot. After many discussions with my son as which direction we should go with regards
    to his recovery, this being the least invasive of procedures out there,
    he decided he would like to try this first. I have emailed 8 or 9 people
    who have had laserpuncture and am convinced, at the very least, it will
    do no damage. Thanks to all who responded to my interrogation. I will post as often as I can.

    Back from France

    Hello all. We have arrived back after 1 month and 31 laserpuncture
    treatments. Happy to report my son has improved from T4 to T7 and
    a diminishing feeling to T12. Cough and sneezing are much stronger,
    can feel abs and also see them flex. Also the scar on his back from
    surgery, which was straight as an arrow, now has a jagged pattern
    like above the injury which indicates muscle now stretching his skin.
    We are going back in March/April. I have also obtained Dr. Cecile
    Jame-Collet's 86 page thesis concerning Albert's therapy,as well
    as the abstract which summerizes the same.
    Should also mention that my son's thermoregulation has improved as
    he now sweats at appropriate times.
    The clinic and treatment attract people from all over the world. I
    have made friends with a young man from Mozambique who will stay for
    3 months of treatments. He is T7 complete. He has promised to report
    improvements as they happen.

    How's the pocket book?

    Great to hear the progress, what was the total trip including air / rooms / treatment etc. cost. My wife is french and lived in Europe for 8 years so we have been waiting to hear all about your trip. She wants to tour while I get repaired. Keep working with the weights while your here!

    Wow, great news Jway. Was your son complete or incomplete at the time of the trip? Was there motor recovery or just sensation?

    Thanks.
