5 days ago i got my xSIID installed, but unfortunately the installation didn’t go totally as planned.
as you can see in the photo, the chip somehow got placed pretty high up closer to the index metacarpal bone instead of closer to the middle of the Thumb and index finger area (purlicue)
It hasn’t been that big of a problem other than i am more careful about what i do with my hand than i would like to be because there is a lot higher risk of hitting the chip than if it was more in the center.
My question is if there’s any way to move the chip further down, or is it stuck there and can only hope for it to move down on it’s own?
From seeing the picture it looks like it’s not overlapping the bone. If it’s resting nice and parallel next to it I wouldn’t worry about hitting it. I think your placement is ok. In fact it’s probably easier to read and you get space for something else under it
I can only move mine because my connective tissue is Garbo so all the underlying fascia tears super easy. I have an implant in the back of my hand that likes to visit another of mine so I occasionally have to move it back.
That being said you may have a connective tissue problem like me if you can completely relocate an implant beneath the skin.
One of my implants is very close to bone as well and it hasn’t effected anything in the nearly 2 years that I’ve had it. As long as it’s not painful at all then you should be fine! Honestly that position seems like it’ll be a lot easier to read than the “normal” P0 placement. I’m slightly jealous
