My name is Dean and I've spent the past 40 years as a professional computer consultant after earning my Comp. Sci. degree in 1984.
I've been married to a great woman for just about the same 40 years, 4 kiddos and 3 gkids.
But I'm really growing desperate.
I've woken up in 4 different ICU's in 2 different hospitals over the past 5 months with no idea how I got there or how many days, or weeks have gone by.
I started as a severe strain of pneumonia took 56% of my lung capacity in 2009. So at that time I was diagnosed with COPD, sleep apnea and asthma, none of which anyone in the previous 60 years has mentioned. To top it off, in order to receive SS disability I had to have my VA med records vetted by VA and be independent doctors. One of those doctors mentioned quickly on the way out the door in a very conversational tone of voice, "You realize don't you that you've had scoliosis." That just brushed by as I was half a step out of the office door.
SoI HAVE to find a way to mitigate the damage to my lungs and return to a basic baseline. And with very little $$$. I depend on my care by the VA and they're not exactly the most forward looking organization in the FedGov.
I've seen a couple references to:
" including a product called Stem Cell Advance which releases stem cells from my own body into my system."
Stem Cell Advance is actually a product that can be pruchased? Can someone give me some information on this please? Contact, pricing, website?
Also, FYI, there's a VERY nice resource for stem cell research at:
It covers the latest and greatest stem cell research and has the past articles archived very well. For instance ... as hard as we thought our problems were, they're ever worse. Something like the liver or heart involve manipulating a single stem cell line. Unfortunately there are 5 stem cell lines involved in healing the lungs. 1 for bronchial tubes, one for alvioli, one for the blood system, one for the spongy material and forget the last one.
It's very nice and I've watched it for a long time. But it's about ALL stem cell organs, not just lungs.
There's also a COPD section: http://www.sciencedaily.com/news/health_medicine/copd/
And a section about lung disease: http://www.sciencedaily.com/news/health_medicine/lung_disease/
Hope this helps and waiting eagerly for replies
lol. ok. it's gigantic so I'll close it off now.
