Hi,
Mine was in for around 8 years. Mine were initally taken out due to pain which didn't improve after unfortunately as they found out I had full thickness osteoarthritis. Anyway your question. Some surgeons like to leave and some don't. Some people want to have them taken out as they can be irritating or catchy. Hope that helps!

Do they ever leave them in? Do you notice a positive improvement in any easy, from having it removed?
