Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there is anyone here (at least yet) who has gone through this kind of treatment.

IMHO, I'd agree with Jerry. I'd personally try virtually anything that's non-invasive before going under the knife. If this either improves or solves the problem 2/3 of the time, you bet I'd give it a shot assuming the potential side effects weren't too severe. Out of curiosity, I poked around on Google a bit but didn't find much about side effects. Did you find anything?

While I hope to never have to use this treatment personally, I'm curious about this procedure. I'd love to hear what you have to say about it, especially after the procedure if you decide to go through with it.
