Has anyone had personal experience with Bronchial Thermoplasty?

A friend who works in a pulmonary doctor's office has wondered if the bronchial thermoplasty procedure would be beneficial for me.  I plan on asking my pulmonary doctor at my next visit about it.

Has anyone either had this procedure or known anyone who has?

    Hi, Lisa … we have had at least one member – @Nemo88 – who's had bronchial thermoplasty. And we've had a couple of threads/posts about it.

    Let us know what the doc says — it would be great if even a fraction of the folks here with really severe asthma had an option. 

    I have such faith and hope that asthma research is going to turn up more options in the future!

    Will let you know what he says.  My appointment isn't until March.  Glad it's no sooner with all the flu going around!
