when they talk about inflammation...what becomes inflamed? if your lungs are inflamed, isn't that more indicative of asthmatic problems than heart problems? what specifically is the trouble spot that indicates a problem?

Seeing the article came out only days ago-- there still would be a string of FDA tests etc. before a procedure to be used by teh egenral populace may/might be seen. Still it doesn't hurt to ask your doctor- You can just print up teh article and ask him or her- Your doctor is there to be somewhat responsive to that kind if request.

Best of luck to you. You need to have a raised toilet seat, and show chair. If you can be set up on one level of your home so you don't have to do stairs, pref downstairs. If you belong to a Church, see if there is a caregivers program in place or even a community caregivers. They will arrange for daily help for you, including meals. Don't be afraid to ask, there are wonderful people out there just waiting to be asked. If you have no help at home, I suggest that you go to a rehab center. E-mail me personally if you like, I've just had mine done 1 wk ago. Good luck
