Are you worried that the hair transplant might become sentient and start trying to kill you like in the Simpsons?

Type 3 sma would have been presenting way before age 17. Most sma type 3s can walk with difficulty in childhood but lose this during adolescence.
There's a chance that she could have adult onset sma (type 4) but again it is likely she would have some symptoms by now.

Just to help the person who asked the question. http://www.smatrust.org/what-is-sma/about-sma/
From a UK based charity.
Basically 1 is the most severe type and 3 the least. Babies with sma1 are never able to sit independently. People with sma 2 can sit at some point in their lives but not stand. People with sma 3 are able to stand independently at some pint in their lives. Sorry about what you were told OP but people with sma 2 generally are able to have very fulfilling lives: that doctor you saw was just incompetent. Sorry for formatting: mobile.

I'm interested to know what other treatments you've tried and input you've received before getting to this as a last resort?
I've seen you mention other chemical/drug treatments you've had but have you done any Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or been part of any MDT pain clinics with talking therapies included?
