Experience

Getting it fitted was really quite painful- I underestimated it. I had a rough few weeks where I was in pain after it was fitted and I was considering getting it out but then it settled and has been fine since. Would get again if I had to go back but be more mentally prepared that the fitting and short period after would suck
