Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

You will probably need to have a surgeon help you get it out.

There is a better chance it will move deeper rather than work itself out at this point.

The good news? A surgeon should be able to get it out pretty easily.

Make sense to you?
