Failed implant Removal

I mean Amal said it can be a struggle… but mine was under 10 seconds to remove

I think it’s just no experience… which would make me think they’ve would be more cautious, not “fuck it, how hard can it be”

My family doctor broke the glass vial on mine while trying to remove it so scheduled me for proper surgery with a specialist.
note to doctors : the glass vial won’t bend.

Chances are forceps or some other rigid tool was used. The tube will break easily if interacted with
directly using a rigid tool of some kind. The resin and glass together make the tube robust enough so it’s breaking point is higher than surrounding tissue and that means the tissue absorbs any force, but direct action will put a tension point directly on the glass and cause it to break fairly easily.

Doctors also like to grab shit with metal forceps. That’s break it in a heartbeat.

Yikes! I hope that your upcoming surgery goes well and that the specialist will be able to remove all of the glass.

True, and something to keep in mind if your doctor is not familiar with glass encapsulated implants.

update everyone! have a look at some of my other posts for context. i’m now getting my chip removed by a professional hand surgeon on the 13th of april. the surgeon said he would make a cut along the chip so he could see the nerves instead of just at the top as doing that would be cutting blindly. instead of using glue like the gp he will be using disposable stitches so ill have a nice scar.

Wow, I thought they would have just left it.

Even the hand surgeon is making it sound more complicated than it actually is.

Have you shown them the DT info on removing?

Were you asking @cjjoneill02 or myself?

My answer: Amal gave him the info at the top of this post, so he has it to share.
Now he just has to convince the doctor to follow it

Sorry I was referring to @cjjoneill02,

At this point if they won’t leave it be, it’s probably in your best interest to try to educate the doctor… so they cause less damage

It’s also a shame because I’m certain they are going to charge you many times more what a body piercer would

I am assuming the parents are footing the bill for this.

It’s still beyond stupid…

The words “hand surgeon” no doubt will cost at least a grand… hopefully there’s good insurance

And they will still probably do a shittier job that a piercer

he doesnt want to push it out because he would be cutting blind and have a chance of hitting nerves which i dont get. just cut the skin and the tissue around the implant and push out. easy. but instead he want to cut ALONG the top of it.
