hi. my name is sue and I am 60 years old and live in the uk. I have bronchiectasis and am constantly searching for treatments. A lady in the US has had stem cells. She initially reported that she felt o no improvement and advised against anyone having this procedure. But after 6 months she is reporting a good improvement and her air volume tests are much improved. She has even felt well enough to go on holiday. I want to know whether this treatment is available privately in the EU or whether I would have to travel to the US.
I have also been reading blogs about a new treatment for bronchiectasis which I think is currently used for other types of COPD called lung reduction where flexable coils are inserted to open up and give formness to the bronchial walls. Does anyone know about this?
