I got it put in on may 27 and it's only June 3.. So I've only had it for a week. But I can't take the ace bandage off without it hurting like hell when I bend my arm. Then when I do bend my arm I can see the end off it and it looks like its about to pop out and I'm bruising bad. I'm also have very bad anger problems ..I'm really thinkin about getting it taken out but not sure if I should. Its just giving me so much pain.
