I have the bitlocker encryption key and I was wondering if there is any way to extract data from this HD.
That is one of the best parts about bitlocker, it encrypts your data and is not recoverable even with the "specialist" hard data recovery programs. It is really secure and all the warnings tell you to make sure that you have backups of your critical information.
If the disk has serious trouble (as yours does) then the last resort that I can recommend is Steve Gibsons Spinrite program available at grc.com I was able to solve a crumped hard disk with it and it worked.. Not cheap but worth it, if it works.
