Re:Davery I really liked your reply - It is the best info that I have found yet on the internet. I am 50 and due to have mine out in 4 wks. My doctor told me that the first week - just liquid - so it seems to me that everything you wrote makes a lot of sense. I would love hearing from other adults over 40 that have had theirs out. I have been told by doctors that it is much harder as you get older but I am sure I will not regret what I will go through.
