Q: 

My son is 32 years old and suffered a anoxic brain injury last year. Is there stem cell treatment that would help him have a better quality of life?

Looking for any therapy for my 48 year old son who suffered anoxia for about 5 minutes in an accident 5 years ago.

I too have a 52 yr old son that had an anoxic encephalopathy incident in 2010. He progressed well through the years. In 2014 he had a stroke and this put him backwards in his recovery. If you read any info about natural or therapeutic remedies please contact me, thank you

My 33 yr old daughter suffered an anoxic brain injury 4 1/2 years ago. I too am interested to find out about stem cell therapy for her as well. She has far exceeded any prognosis given and seemed to plateau at about 3 years, then about 6 months ago has greatly improved. So I feel her recovery is not over and would like to do anything I can to help her life and my granddaughter's life (who I have in my care). I would appreciate talking to you and others incase we can help each other find more answers and support.

Hi Deb. This post has given me hope. I've been told that 2 yrs of healing is pretty much all you get. July 26th will be 2 yrs since my 24 yr old daughter had a diabetic seizure lasting over 12 hrs, leaving her with an anoxic brain injury. My daughter has also far exceeded the physicians prognosis of death or if "lucky" vegetative state, but as her mother I want more. I would love to talk with you, if interested please email me. God Bless, Rhonda K

Hello Anonymous,

I am so sorry to hear this. What is your husband's mental status now?
Is he in a coma? Or is he alert and able to communicate? What do the physician say?

Regards,
Maryann

Deb - Support groups and patient advocacy organizations can be very helpful in reaching others who are dealing with the same situation and gaining more information and support. There aren't many specifically for anoxic brain injury, but there are several for brain injury. Here are some links to help you:
