In another thread, verboten1 posted for the first time.:

What do you know about HIFU? It's not approved in the US and is undergoing study. So most here don't have the option of HIFU unless they go outside of the US and pay for it themselves. Insurance doesn't cover it..

Welcome to HW, hate you have to be here. I hope you will share your Journey with us, maybe in a signature with concise details of your travels so far? Again, welcome..
