TLDR; I’m looking for advice/recommendations from people who have had their implants removed, namely in the UK as that’s where I’m based. Preferably somewhere “affordable” as covid is hitting the old wallet hard.
I managed to slip while putting up a fence today, and hit my hand squarely where my implant is, it’s not in a perfect place due to migration, sitting slightly further back than ideal so I’m not certain what condition it’s in currently. My hand is still relatively swollen, I’ve immobilised it for the time being to stop further damage, but before it started really swelling I tried to perform a read on the HF side with a proxmark and got nothing for over 30 minutes (it was super easy to get a read before even with a phone).
I have a sneaking suspicion I may have cracked the implant, or at the very least damaged it through the vibration of the hammer hitting it. Either way I’m keen to get it out as I don’t like the idea of having potentially smashed glass floating around inside me (I have no idea of the construction of the NExT, if it’s hollow, solid glass or resin filled and how likely it is shards would come off in the event of a smash so please excuse my ignorance here).
North East England would be preferred for removal, but I could probably stretch a journey to lowland Scotland too if that’s going to work better
Thanks in advance!
