COPD

Good morning to all. I am new to this website and hope I am posting this correctly.

I have very sever stage III COPD with a FEV1 of 34. I have been hearing quite a bit about, and having been doing some research, on stem cell therapy. I have yet to discuss this with my pulmonologist but will at my next appointment.

I am wondering if anyone has had the procedure and would being will to share.

Thank you.

    Stem cell therapy is a promising area of research. My friend in Australia told me it is used over there.

    Her husband had stem cell therapy which helped him live longer than expected. I am sure your consultant will know all about it and whether it would benefit you.

    I am sorry about the loss of your friends husband.

    If you don't mind my asking, did your friends husband have a quality life or merely a longer life after his stem cell therapy?

  • Thank you for your welcome Nikkers, and by the way, that's what I call my granddaughter!!

    I am truly enjoying this site, very informative.

    I'm thinking that since the stem cell therapy for COPD is so new that there haven't been many who have had the procedure.

  • Thank you so very much, lots of information to read, absorb and follow.
