My mom lost her sight after having a heart attack and open heart surgery.. We are hearing alot about stem cell research. any one have any info on how to get in touch with a doctor who is doing research on it, or experiments on it? She was 45 and had a life.. now she will never see her grandchildren grow or see her new grandson be born... I just want to help her to see again.:(

I feel your pain in the experience and hope that since yyour post you have had peace and possible good fortune in your quest for the issue. My aunt is 75, and though still young at heart, age does play a roll. Your mom being 45 (my age) scares me and I can only imagine the horror if it were to happen to me. My prayers to you and your family tony

  • I have never heard of that happening after open heart surgery. My mom recently had a heart attack and had Open Heart Surgery. Now you have me scared, is this something that happened immediately? Or was it over a certain amount of time?
