Heart Function Goes Up From 10% to 50%
Donald Cecil reports that his heart function has quintupled after receiving adult stem cell therapy in Thailand. Donald says his ejection fraction (a measure of the heart’s pumping ability) has increased from 10% to 50% almost one year after his stem cell procedure.
Before going to Thailand to receive Theravita’s patented Vescell adult stem cell therapy, Don was suffering from congestive heart failure. Two heart attacks had severely damaged my heart. I couldn’t walk 30 feet without passing out or taking a knee. I kept getting worse and worse. My doctor told me that the left side of my heart had given up on me. I had to give up surfing which is what I love.
Don was treated in October, 2006 at Bangkok Heart Hospital where he received â€œcare that easily surpassed the hospitals in the U.S. They were great.â€ Donâ€™s own stem cells were injected back into his heart in a minimally invasive surgical procedure.
Asked about his decision to come to Bangkok for the stem cell treatment, Don commented, â€œIt was an easy decision to make because I was dying. I wasnâ€™t scared at all because it was something I had to do to keep me going. This was it for me.â€
Almost one year later, Don has seen his quality of life improve dramatically. Don is surfing again and just returned from a surfing trip in Mexico. â€œIt was great, I could paddle out again and surf overhead waves. I would be happy to recommend this to anybody. Just have them give me a call.â€
