I pulled the trigger and got my first two implants!
I got a NExT in P0 on the left hand and a
Xmagic in P0 on the right hand.
The NExT has settled and seems to be right up against the metacarpal of the pointer finger (left hand). But doesn’t hurt. And seems to be fine.
They can be up against a bone just not over it right??
The Xmagic has turned almost 45 degrees and seems to hurt whenever I do anything. I’ve tried to reposition it by hand with no luck. And I’m having a bit of pain in that hand. Especially when I do anything that touches it.
It looks like the Xmagic has enough room to not hit anything if it’ll settle?
Wanted to ask the hive mind what they thought.
I’ve scanned both with the flipper and both read fine.
The Xmagic is quite prominent comparitively. I’ll take pics. With lines to show position.
Touching my implants hurt for a bit while healing so I don’t think that’s a big deal since it’s only 6 days post install. For the 45° rotation, I had my xSIID in P0 rotate damn near 90° and a little backwards and close to a bone. I never tried to reposition it, but it’s been completely fine for me. It stopped moving and found it’s happy place.
You’re running the same setup as I do - next in L0 and xmagic in R0
If you try to reposition the xMagic, does it move to new position and then moves back, or it doesn’t move at all? I am asking because if it moves( to it’s original install position), there is a way to force it to stay there.
Feeling mild pain/discomfort is normal on recent installs. When implant is installed the needle is rupturing the fascia layer between your skin and the underlying muscle. Also, because the implant has cylindrical shape and it’s made of glass and has no anti migration coating, it can move around, till the tissues heals. In case it’s pushed it can migrate.
Your best bet would be to push the xmagic to it’s original position, then use lollie pop sticks or rolled cotton pads or something else and fix this to the skin with some med tape. This should hold the implant in place till tissue heals.
Few more things, some folks here take some food supplements to speed up the healing process. You can look around about this. Me personally I am taking a liquified collagen, vit c, plus folic acid.
As Amal mentioned, unfortunately if anything above does not help and implant continues to cause you trouble, you may want to consider reinstall. I have no freaking idea how it can be sterilised before reinstall thou.
