SJW: The consensus is that it helps the depressed patients as much as the regular antidepressants, because it inhibits the synaptosomal uptake of serotonin, Dopamine and noradrenaline or norepinephrine (all neuro transmiters), with approximately equal affinity. The half life is 60 hrs. One could feel the maximum effect in two weeks.

It depends: If they freeze it, it will hurt for about 30 minutes. If they surgically remove it, it will hurt for a week or so.
