NeuroAiD improved her quality of life

Liliana Ibague, Colombia*

This month, we bring you the testimony (sent via email) of Cecilia’s daughter, Liliana from Colombia.

Cecilia Sanchez, 75, suffered from Guillain Barré 8 years ago, in addition to an ischemic stroke in the right part of the brain and another haemorrhagic event in the left part. These events caused serious consequences, especially affecting her motor system.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Liliana for her attention and collaboration with us.

Dear Sergio,

Please allow me to briefly describe the clinical picture presented by my mother:

  • Sensitive-motor polyneuropathy with predominance in the lower limbs or secular chronic guillain barrè (suffered 8 years ago) causing complete inability to walk and severe neuropathic pain.
  • An ischemic stroke in the brain on the right side four days after arriving in Bogotá (Columbia).
  • haemorrhagic stroke in the cerebellum on the left side within ten days of having the ischemic stroke, then had epileptic seizure about eight days after having the stroke with no movement in her body and with delirium.

Her medical history is:

  • High blood pressure, diabetes mellitus and atrial fibrilation.
  • She is anticoagulated and 10 years ago she was operated on for a mild stroke on the right side.

She began treatment with NeuroAiD 5 weeks after her event, and it was suspended after 2 weeks due to vomiting caused by an infection she had in her throat.

She restarted on NeuroAiD again 2 weeks later.

I arrived with my mother in the city of Ibagué (Colombia) where we live, without her walking or having to control of her body. In fact, the best neurosurgeon in Bogotá told me that a patient with the clinical condition presented by my mother would hardly be able to walk again. her chances were very slim.

However, I can confirm that she began to walk gradually after a month and a half and also recover movement and strength in her entire body.

She could eat, bathe, put on make-up, dress herself, washes alone and tidies her own things. She continues in physical and occupational therapy. She no longer uses the walker.

Today, my mother can have quality of life, it is simply incredible.

I thank God for allowing me to find the wonderful NeuroAiD.

I am infinitely grateful to Sergio for his advice and sense of humanity.

I wish to continue having contact with you.
