My dad has been diagnosed with Parkinsons' for just over 18 months now. His main symptoms are a tremor on the left side, fatigue, depression, poor balance, most recently he is having trouble standing up. He was a very active person prior to this so it is really difficult to see this happen to him. He has to use a stick to get around and needs to be able to sit a lot.
He is currently taking Siminet but it does not seem to be relieving any of the symptoms. The GP and the specialist both seem reluctant to offer any other help or treatment and just tell him to continue with the medication that he has.
My parents have been reading lots about stem cell treatment - does anyone have any experience of this? Could this be another avenue we could explore.
PS. He also has prostate cancer which is being controlled by hormone treatment at the moment. Expecting radiotherapy to start at the end of the year.
