Does anyone have any experience with resizing your e-ring? I know there was a recent post on putting the "balls" into your e-ring. Has anyone ever done this and then had to take them out – does it leave a mark? My e-ring is an antique and I’m worried about messing it up, but my finger has shrunk (since I’m 30 pounds lighter!)
Any advice is appreciated!

I have ring bumps on my ring. I don’t think they would leave any mark if they were removed by a competent jeweler. I had them put on because my ring was about a half size too big, but I didn’t want it resized in case that would make it tight in the summer. The bumps not only keep it from spinning, they make it so that you have to have the ring lined up just right to take it off, so if it’s a little loose you won’t lose it.
If your size difference is a full size or greater, you probably do need it resized. Whether the shank can be adjusted without cutting it depends on the style of the ring though, and is really something only a jeweler can tell you. I would recommend that you go somewhere that does the work in-house, so that you can talk to the person who will do it about your concerns, and how they actually will do the work. If you take it to one of the big chain stores they usually send it away for the work, and can’t always tell you exactly what will be done.

Just take it to a reputable jeweler.
And keep in mind- your ring doesn’t have to be perfectly symmetrical- so they may be able to take it from a circle shape to an oval shape to make it smaller without impacting the part of the ring where the setting it. (Not sure if that makes any sense).
