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.
