Did you feel/move lighter after you had the metal taken out??
Not enough grams of high quality metal to make a difference, may lead or gold might have been significant!
The shoulder does feel a bit less painful as the metal was pressing on the end of my collar bone / top of the arm making it so I could not put any weight on my left side.
I might get the metal out of my knee one of these days. The last two times they scheduled me in were on days right after I'd flown out of the state/country.
OK so your not into heavy metal.
More of folk music person myself
Can comedians like folk music, and vice-versa?
