What medications have you tried for treating your high blood viscosity ?
Have you assessed the main cause of re current PE?
Stem cell therapy is indicated in many cases but it is not known to be proved to be effective in many cases till now and still under research.. So why does your doctor wants you to do it??

Mesenchymal Stem Cell Transplant for Parkinson’s is still in trial phase, so outcome can not be confirmed, however my opinion that it is a waste of money, I vote against it
Good Luck

Thanks for the query..

Parkinson’s can be very well controlled with the help of medication, physical therapy and speed h therapy and lifestyle modifications..

At times if there is diminished response with medication then deep brain stimulation can be done but only after a proper examination and under strict observation of a Neurosurgeon..

Mesenchymal stem cell transplant is a under trial and it’s authenticity is still questionable..

So it will be better to consult a Neurophysician and get properly evaluated and do not proceed for Mesenchymal stem cell transplant as of now .

Hope this helps..

there are no confirmed reports of its efficacy in giving a permanent solution.
I advise,instead to look for other tests to find out a root cause and keep conservative line of management.
Avoid stem cell transplant unless your doctor guarantees of 100 % results.
