I waited too long to take off my wedding ring. Went to try to take it off, and realized how swollen I was! Luckily I was able to take it off after watching a YouTube video of this dental floss technique. It hurt! But it's off and I don't have to worry about needing it cut off:)

Yeah, I still have the two pieces they cut. I tried the floss trick, Windex, lotion, everything. Nothing worked. I had no choice :-(
