I would give anything for this procedure. I’m 61 & developed emphysema I think in my 40’s or 50’s.way too young! I’ve had anxiety for 10 yrs & even had to go into an assisted living for 2 yrs. at one time. The emphysema has given this to me plus many fears I cannot get rid of. What qualifies you for this? Thank you
