Thank you for continuing to post updates. I'm at 30 days post procedure and hopeful that I'll see changes but haven't yet. Like you I did not have any of the serious side effects that others have reported. I'm sorry to hear about... READ COMMENT

At one month there was no change. Hopefully there will be something to show at two months! READ COMMENT

I agree! The post-procedure pain was minimal. Look forward to hearing your results, too! READ COMMENT
