Hi, This is my first post on this site. I am a brit abroad, I live in Arizona. I was diagnosed with COPD about 7 years ago and have noticed a deterioration in my breathing over the last 2years so when I read an article in a local magazine about stem cell surgery I thought I would check it out . Well I trawled the Internet and came up with all kinds of conflicting info some good some not so good, I contacted people who had had the treatment at the clinic and they all (4 of them) said that they had noticed an improvement but I read that many people can get a placebo effect from treatment. As the treatment is not cheap I taught I would ask people on this forum what they thought.The clinic does not claim it is a cure but they do say that it slows the progress of the disease and can bring some improvement , they say some people have been able to come off their steroid inhailers. Has anyone been for this treatment ,I found clinics in Switzerland, Thailand and Russia, on line .what are your thoughts please.
