Experience after taking

The main issue I had was with pain in the muscles once the implant was removed. Whilst it was in it was always noticeable but never painful. Once it was taken out I could not carry anywhere near the same weights as my other arm (for nearly two years) or pick my 3 yr old up comfortably.

Had a similar experience?
