How many of you have had your weight taken out for good? How did you know you were ready to have it out? Has anybody had a lighter weight put in, mine is so heavy my eye won't open all the way. I am goint to see if a lighter one will work better. Any ideas? Karen
Hi Karen: I just had my gold weight removed (I had a reaction), but it's not for good (can't help you there).
I'll have a platinum weight put in in about 8 weeks.
I see you had the nerve graft done in 2004 - did it reverse the facial paralysis ?
I'm thinking if so, you probably don't need a weight anymore.
I was told if the facial paralysis ever goes away, I wouldn't need the weight.
