Not at all. While it was a lengthy process (not helped by Covid I’m sure) they were understanding (if not a bit confused).
The GP took a bit of explaining exactly what the issue was, due to it being a phone call appointment, but they asked for photos and then referred me to the hand clinic at the hospital.
The hospital got in contact a couple of weeks later letting me know they had received my referral, but due to Covid, they weren’t taking any appointments and would be in contact in the future.
Back in June they finally got in contact and booked me in to take an X-ray and take a physical look at it and ask some questions regarding body mods and magnets.
Finally yesterday, I went in to have it removed. The doctor said she tried searching through medical journals to find out as much as she could, but found very little. As a result she wanted to write a medical journal up based on myself, which I quite happily agreed to.
With it being done in a hospital, I unfortunately couldn’t take any photos or videos, but because she was writing a journal up on it, she took photos which she let me take photos of. I’ve posted them in my thread Here
Regarding the magnet that was in my finger previously, it was installed about 6 years ago by a tattoo studio in London, not a KSEC installer. I didn’t ask the installer near me about removing it for free, I was more than willing to pay to have this magnet removed (and get a flexDF2 installed in the back of my hand at the same time).
But he outright refused to remove anything, so I just went to the GP instead and installed the flexDF2 myself.
I’m just surprised to hear that it’s standard policy for a KSEC installer to do free removals, yet my local one refused to do anything.
