FlexNT in right middle finger needs to come out.
Got radiographs done, but the surgeons said that they can give me a referral only… because it’s not infected.
2-6 months on the waiting list.
It hurts enough to restrict me in doing my work and more, so mainly interested in ASAP solutions.
London, UK, Europe, I’m happy to travel as long as it’s getting sorted.
Good part of the story: exraaaaays
P.s.: also the 2 glass chips might as well be removed due to lack of use and for preventative measures.
I’d however rather save £500 on towards anyone who is actually available.
It is also possible to get it out the very next day in private at some (many) London clinics, but they charge around £2k.
I might as well do it myself then. I would have done it anyway, but I can’t suture with one hand.
I literally spent the whole day explaining my situation to professionals who have never seen this before and ended up pinching and twisting my implant, that anyways hurts as hell, because the poor guys thought that it got sutured to the tendons. Facepalm
I know it might sound rageous, but I am tired of this whole implant situation. Just want them out and leave them as.
Can’t blame them! They got their daily dose of Atilla prior to lunch time
The hospital staff was kinda cool. Note, that I practiced my story a LOT!
They were actually interested, but totally greenhorn in the topic.
The receptionist didn’t bat an eyelid:
-How can I help?
-Foring body removal.
-Show me…? …So left hand middle finger. Date of birth?
-So what happened to your finger?
-Ther’s a chip under the skin.
-Ahh, alright, please take a seat.
I’m tired of this and all that, but once it’s sorted I’ll laugh my butt off when I think back
I’ll ping him ̶t̶o̶m̶o̶r̶r̶o̶w̶ in the daytime once I feel less grumpy.
Meanwhile I might just remind myself of the radiographer I met today
I saw the filmholders, and was briefed about the now obsolete analogue techniques.
Maybe I can get the digital files in about 40 working days. Maybe
You need to convince Dr Doc to stay for a cheeky pint.
Also, I like your confidence but if you don’t mind I’d just ask you to record the process
The case is actually interesting and very DT related. Also it was beta test, so all data goes back to uncle Amal.
Need to mention: the main reason of the “failure” might be the size of my hand. I’m a small fellow for such an implant at the most badass location. I was young and fool and agreed on anything and everything.
I would love to keep the implant in a unique clear resin watchstrap for my beloved Casio F91W, once it comes back from the US:anatomical_heart:
I was the first one saying Doc would be better than me for the procedure!
Also, I know well enough what I can and can’t do. so no ofense taken! ^^
it should slide out easily.
That said, It isn’t 100% guaranteed.
Also, I’m basing myself on the fact that this implant was made by @amal , henceforth it doesn’t have any coating to hook on the skin.
But if I’m wrong, then it could be slightly more annoying, but nothing to get concerned with.
Happy to be an extra set of hands to hold recording devices and hand instruments.
