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 heartâ€™s pumping ability) has increased from 10% to 50% almost one year after his stem cell procedure.
Before going to Thailand to receive Theravitaeâ€™s patented Vescell adult stem cell therapy, Don was suffering from congestive heart failure. â€œTwo heart attacks had severely damaged my heart. I couldnâ€™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.â€
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€
