Today was the day!
I’ve been holding onto my NExT implant for over a month now searching for an installer in the south Texas region. Not wanting to drive 3 hours to Austin or even 2 hours to San Antonio I decided to just pop it in myself.
I’ve read up on everything (for months), carefully measured everything out with calipers (I’m a little OCD) and did a (what I think to be a) text book install in the L0 region.
I was actually expecting a bigger needle, however I am quite glad it wasn’t, I cannot believe how hard it is to push that needle in, I must have been using just as much strength holding back as I was pushing forward. I can’t be exact on its location at the moment but it does read from my iPhone.
I still have the xLED’s both hf & lf in white to install, thinking L2 or 3 and R2 or 3 but I’m happy I got my first one in for now.
