Side effects for Norplants if not removed?

I have a Norplant for over 5 years and I am unable to have them removed. What side effect should I expect to have?

Where did you have this done??? And why can you not get it removed?

Infection around the site is something that happens when it isn't removed.

I hate this form of birth control...they don't even dispense it anyone in the US. It has a tainted history...Norplant :: shudder ::
