Had the Mirena removed two days ago. How long until some of my side effects from it subside?

Hello ladies! I had my Mirena removed two days ago due to terrible side effects that have negatively impacted my life. Mirena almost destroyed my marriage and almost made me lose my children! I was an emotional disaster beyond anything I have ever experienced. I also had weight gain (25 pounds), Headaches (every day), diarrhea (every day), itchy skin, acne, Bloating (look 5 months pregnant), brain fog and confusion, memory problems, anger problems, left leg pain, hair falling out, dry eyes and the list goes on! I didn't know what had caused the unexplainable onset of these symptoms for the first 7 months I was on Mirena. I felt so alone and scared not knowing and I felt like I was an aphrodisiac! I couldn't understand why every time I turned around there was some new problem with me and I'm sure my husband probably thought I was faking it too. He stopped even achnologing me when i told him my problems and acted like "oh great, now what?!". I remember crying to him a few months ago that "I know something is wrong with me physically and I'm going to go to the doctor and refuse to leave until they tell me what it is!" I just want my life back! How long after getting the Mirena taken out did your side effects start to subside? Did the bloating go down quickly? Give me details please! Thank you!
