Mickey thanks for your post. My throat problem has gotten better. I havent had any problems with swelling around the eyes, but my left thigh is swollen. Very weird. I still get joint pain about 1 day per month. My biggest problem that wont go away is the weakness in my left arm and hand and in my left leg. It worried me so much but Im just trying to be patient. i also am about 2 months post removal. I still feel like im going to die some days. I HATE that IUD.
