From what I understand, the wound is not supposed to form a scab either. I also feel that this experiment was not done under the best conditions but didn’t want to post this earlier because I don’t want to be accused of making “excuses” for Acell. I’m pretty sure Dr. Jones is going to test on other patients also…I hope this time the sheets will be reapplied more often.
I do know that other docs are also trying it. Dr. Mwamba is one of them. I did correspond with Dr. Cole’s office (via e-mail) about Acell, but they didn’t confirm whether they would try it or not. This was a while ago.
I know that a doc in NY is trying it also.
There are a couple more docs that I know are experimenting with it but seem to be seceretive about it, so I won’t mention their names (although I already have in the past).
At this point, I’m somewhat disappointed in the results, but I’m hoping that the ultimate outcome changes my opinion. I’m also hoping (if mistakes were made in this trial), they are corrected with a better outcome.
