    Mayo Clinic Radio: Patient stories — fecal transplant / cupping therapy / heart transplant

On this special Thanksgiving edition of Mayo Clinic Radio, you’ll hear from three patients who have reason to give thanks. First, we revisit an unusual transplant story. Gastroenterologist Dr. Sahil Khanna and patient Stephanie Bennett explain how fecal transplant was used to treat her Clostridium difficile infection. Also on the program, licensed acupuncturist Sara Bublitz and her patient, Heather Spaniol, share how alternative therapies, including cupping, helped manage the pain after a battle with flesh-eating bacteria. And, hear a repeat of the story of Jimmy Dunbar, a transplant patient waiting for a heart transplant.

Listen to the program on Saturday, Nov. 26, at 9:05 a.m. CST.
