Ugh. Thanks for the heads up. After I posted my text this morning, all I could think about was getting the thing out of me, so I went to an urgent treatment center and had them take it out at 8 am. Of course, I am just waiting for me to miraculously feel better. I know it will take a while, but I just hope that I haven't permanently messed up my body. Glad I got it out, but will keep you posted on how things unfold in the next the next few months. Thanks!
