OK, so after a long time with the replacement implant sitting on my desk, I think I have finally found a professional who will install it. The question then becomes: How do I get the defective one removed to send it back? I’m going to have the replacement implanted on the other hand.
I should note that I’ve tried periodically to read both sides and while the HF still responds, the LF is still undetectable. The implant appears to have settled only 2 mm from my thumb bone (measured with a caliper) , and I wonder if that could be affecting anything or will impact removal.
