Re: big prob
I guess I can understand any hesitance regarding going to a doctor to get it removed, explaining what you need an appointment for to some random receptionist might cause more problems. Is there any one specifically that you have heard of who has been chipped? Someone that you believe to be telling the truth? I suppose if there is you can ask them what they would do if they were you. They may have a doctor that the can recommend who can take that thing out.
I can't imagine living with that for so long.
