    Yep....we continue to wait....and even then, the human stem cell treatments that are currently happening, have to be started on the person within 7 - 14 days of the onset occurring....(from what I have read anyway)
    So, with that said....for newbies, there may be a chance....
    For this of us that have had TM for awhile.....probably not too much of a chance...

    Which for me, is okay...My biggest concern ever since I got TM....and realized how nasty it is....is that I don't want to see young children have to deal with this.....so if there can be a breakthrough for a possible cure....and they can apply it to young kids shortly after they develop TM...and that gives them a chance to be cured of it....then that is good.

    Screw that! I want my bladder/bowel back through nerve grafting even 26yrs later - I'm certain I've earned it!
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    I totally get where you're coming from.....after just three years....and I still wish I could pee without having to use a catheter...and not worry about having a bowel accident....
    and I could certainly enjoy not having to deal with the pain anymore too.....

    I only say I'm okay with newbies having a chance at getting cured...especially the little kids...because I know that once the medical field gets to that point, then I know that there will eventually be a chance for the rest of us too.....

    God, I hope anyway.....

    Jawaid....No new news...other than what I had posted previously.
    I suspect that it will be awhile before we hear anything new....

    Kevin will Kerr not be able to start trial in year or so?

    Is he thinking for only stem cell or with some combination for chronic SCI?

    I honestly don't know what Dr. Kerr's time frame is going to be...I haven't heard anything specific from him.

    As far as when the treatments start...I suppose it will be just stem cell treatments for some....and perhaps a combination of that and medication for others...
    What I do know, is that the ones that are going to be given the first opportunity at stem cell treatment, are those that have the most recent onset of TM....They would have the best opportunity for a better recovery...
    I don't know what will happen for those of us that have had TM for awhile...
    I'm sure that info will be released when they get closer to this actually happening...

    Dear Lynnifer,

    Will you be getting nerve graft surgery for bowel and bladder? Where will you be doing this? Do you know anyone who has had this? How successful is it? Would appreciate any information. Thanks.
