Is this a normal situation and will it get better and if so, how long will it generally take?
Now that they are of no further use, I was wondering if they could not be removed?
Please advise what I should expect in the future in this regard.
PS. While I am very thankful to have my life saved by the operation, I sometimes wonder if it was worth the effort. Yes I know I could be dead now or soon without the operation but it is so very hard at times that I just wonder sometimes. I do know it is all for the best and I may now grow old enough to see my [2 year old] son grow up, but I still get very down at times.
