I saw it done on TV long ago. Must have some bad side effects,or not used enough to keep the equipment around.
The hospital I went to doesn't have that machine. Instead, the urologist uses a laser. I must say, ultrasonic waves sound much better. And, if I had to do it again, I would go to a different hospital. I can't believe I let the Dr. do that. I guess I'm a pushover for attractive and intelligent Asian wimmen.
