I'm looking for clinical trial that uses patients own stem cells for herniated/torn discs ASAP.
I've been suffering in pain a very long time, too long, and sometimes it is even uncomfortable to breathe.
I've lost everything since this started over 12 years ago and haven't been able to get proper medical care because of poor insurance and subsequent poor finances (lost everything from this - finances, friends, pets, ability to walk/sit/stand for long time, etc.). Some good docs will take my Medicare but not Medicaid and I can't afford out-of-pocket expense anymore, and they won't waive co-pays. Medicare and Medicaid won't cover stem cell therapies at all so I am looking for clinical trials.
I am desperate for relief. I've already tried "clinicaltrials.gov" and was unable to locate anything even though I know they are out there (was not even able to find the recently closed U.C. Davis study), so I must be doing something wrong in my search.
Please help me. I'm in my early 40's and running out of time if I want to recover and have any semblance of a life left before age prevents doing anything (even if the procedure works, it will take me over a year to undo the consequential damage, ie: atrophy, etc.)
I'm in NY at the moment, NYC. If you have any info at all, please let me know ASAP.
Thank you very much.
