Well, It's been 6 months since I had my stem cell treatment and I can't say that it has helped me. Maybe because I have Bronchiectasis that adds a whole new issue to COPD. My lungs maybe repairing it self, but the weakening of the airway walls (the difference from Bronchiectasis and COPD) will not improve. I knew that going into the procedure. My hope was an improvement of lung function and less shortness of breath.
But I still have lung infections and are hard to get rid of, so bottom line....think twice before having the procedure if you have Bronchiectasis. It is still considered research, so insurance will not pay for it.
