Hello community, I would like to ask a few questions regarding ones first implant. I’m going to be getting the NExT implant next month and believe there will be many people with the same questions.
1.) What is the irritation under the skin like? I’ve read that it could last up to two years or so, does it feel like an itch? Does it feel like a sliver inside of the body? How long does it take to make it feel comfortable and natural? I’m sure it’s different for everyone, but please share what the “feeling” is like and how long does it last from your personal experience. Taking prenatal vitamins will help but should one take prenatal vitamins for the whole 2 years until it feels natural or just for the first month or so?
2.) How is it when massaging ones hands? I massage my hands quite often and go to get massages and acupuncture regularly… would this interfere with the therapist massaging the area of implant?
3.) Is it possible to “brick” the chip? Is there a way to render the chip useless by writing to it improperly? What steps should one take when writing to avoid improperly writing? Delete the previous write first, then write to it on a clean memory?.. or is writing over it just as good?
I love how supportive this community is, how everybody shares projects and is genuinely there for each other. It’s a beautiful thing and I can’t wait to be a part of this community.
Thank you all and especially the master himself, Amal! <3
