Thank you for your post. You are giving me hope! I am having mine taken out today at 3:50! I am very excited. I am hoping I just start getting better and not crash or whatever. I will post my story tonight when I get home and my friend is getting hers removed after I think almost two years. I told her about all the stuff I have been reading on here and she even got her removal date moved up one day. I am hoping to be able to go with her to have it removed because she has to go to her drs. in the city. Thank you again and I will be posting tonight!
