I live in Ireland. At age of about 27 years, I met with an accident and smashed my right ankle. The chief damage was to the talus, which was crushed. I also impaired my back. Firstly, I had the talus put together with 3 screws but discomfort was severe when walking. So four years later, I had the upper ankle joints bonded using some bone from my hip. This was ok, but steadily, walking became more challenging and I took up windsurfing as my only energetic sport. Over the years, the residual articulation in the foot became constrained and I impaired it numerous times windsurfing, predominantly 2 years ago, when a high-impact jump ensued in nearly permanent pain. Sleep typically required a half bottle of wine or at times more, but I continued to windsurf. Over the last 2 years, I never went through airports without supports and even on windsurfing trips I used crutches to get around when in the water.
Mr. Lobo a pro windsurfer told me about some person he knew who got stem cell treatment for a knee problem and so my husband investigated it. I went to a leading foot surgeon soon after the damage 2 years ago and he gave me no optimism of any improvement. So, as a substitute to amputation or completely fusing the ankle joints, I decided to try stem cell treatment. Overall, I am very, very satisfied with the result so far. I got in touch with Stem Cell Care India and went there in September 2010. The procedure took one week: tests day 1, umbilical cord stem cells extraction day 2, x-ray scans day 3, stem cell injection into joints day 5 and flight home day 6. On the morning after treatment, I found my incessant pain was completely gone. At this phase, I had been using crutches round-the-clock for the past 2 years; except around the house or workplace. Now, just 10 weeks later, I don’t need the crutches for any usual activity and while I used crutches for a recent flight, I didn’t feel that I actually needed them. I don’t have the pain any longer and while I still have a poor foot, I feel that it is as good as it was before my mishap 2 years ago.
