I really don't feel like waiting a month even though it is recommended. So, is there any way I can determine if it has healed? I really want to get through 16g-8g as fast as possible since I was previously stretched to an 8g. I lost my jewelry so I couldn't keep my gauges :( What would you recommend? My goal is now 0g. Is there any advice that you would like to give me? I would really appreciate it :)

Please, please no rude comments. I have made my decision to do this so leave me be.
