Experience

I have had a neutral experience using the implant but having read some reviews i think it has had a negative impact on my moods and emotions. I take antidepressants and have had increased feelings of anger and irritability. I am having the implant removed to see is these symptoms ease. I also feel my body weight has increased and whilst i am now on a calorie controlled diet the weight has hardly shifted. Again another reason to take the implant out and see if i can loose some weight and become emotionally more stable.
