Davion Resal is back after a month in Panama receiving stem cells which will hopefully help regenerate his spine. As many of you may recall, Davion had a GoFundMe campaign to help cover the costly expenses of this international procedure. Davion wanted to share a bit about his time and let everyone know that he had a positive experience.
Before he left, he was walking with a walker for short distances. Since his procedure, he has noticed that he is much stronger and has the endurance to walk for longer periods of time. His main goal was to see some increase in strength and sensation in his right leg which tends to be weaker than his left and he has already started to see a difference! He is noticing more sensation, strength and endurance specifically with his right leg.
It is common for patients who have received stem cell therapy to slowly see gains within the fist two to three months post treatment. Davion must continue to use his legs as much as possible and continue with physiotherapy in order to see the most gains.
He was very happy with the facility that he went to and mentioned that the doctors, nurses and physiotherapists were all very kind and helpful. He met many other patients just like him who are seeing tremendous recovery post stem cell therapy.
When I asked him if he’d go again, he said “definitely.”
Davion, we missed you while you were away but we are also very excited to have you back so that we can push you harder and help you achieve your goals and to watch you get stronger!
