I have taken some advice from the forums and read through enough that I am comfortable with purchasing and trying my first implant.
Am planning to purchase the NExT and the red xLED. NExT for purpose, xLED for blinky blinky (if only it came in blue)
My idea for this is to have both put in the webbing of right hand, 5mm apart at a minimum as I have found this is the generally agreed upon distance.
I will be having this inserted by a professional and not myself.
My question is how would you recommend this be done. 2 injections on same hand during same sitting, or 1 injection first and another at a later date after healing? I am hoping to do 2 on the same day and get it all done, but would like experiences from others, as I have none.
I am aware this is a matter of opinion and will not consider this professional advice, nor hold anybody accountable should something happen.
My logic and reasoning for this is, (As I have mentioned elsewhere)
One sitting = one healing period.
Two sittings = two healing periods. ( why drag it out??? )
Especially since they are going in the same hand; I can understand people considering getting 2 separate sittings for 2 hands, but PERSONALLY had no issues with that.
Blue Blinky, as you would be aware, is available in the xSIID, I am not aware if Amal is planning on more colours for the xLEDs ( Yes, that is how Colour is spelt ( Yes that is how Spelt is Spelt but also acceptable is Spelled )
Different kinds of LED’s, if you can get them to make a special xLED for you, you probably will have to pay alot for it. And then other people will flood them for requests. I have already suggest the idea of more colors for the xLED and it was said to be an idea they are thinking about. so maybe wait a bit with the xLED?
My personal opinion is to het it done in two sitting especially if your job doesnt require heavy lifting. Its similar to getting piercings if you get a bunchnin one area the irritation of the skin and such can cause excess swelling and in turn keep your body in fight mode longer increasing the chance of infection. But this really might not be much of a problem if any they heal really quick, but im of the mind to mitigate as many negative possibilities as i can in life.
now that I’m getting an xLED along with the NExT and Spark, I’m left with this choice too. I THINK I’ll probably just get them done in one go (NExT and xLED in the webbing of my hand, and the Spark in my arm)… I figure might as well just get it all done so I don’t have to convince myself to go for another stabbing or 2 at a later time in the same area. At least that’s my thinking so far.
I really can’t wait for the darn things to show up so I can get this first batch over-with. I’m FAIRLY sure the anticipation is worse than the actual process will be… but that doesn’t stop my mind from creating craziness and choice paralysis.
