After installing my FlexDF2 I decided to hang around the forums here and see what everyone else was up to.
Which bought me across to the DT magnet video mentioning about the issue they had with them breaking down. Which got me onto thinking about my own magnet.
I had my magnet put in my left ring finger near the tip back in 2014, sensation was fantastic when I first got it, but after a couple of years it puffed up a bit and sensations weren’t as strong as they were. I just assumed the skin around it had thickened and hardened up a bit, now I’m not too sure.
I had pretty much completely forgot about it (with the exception of when I try to lift heavy things and I make sure to not put too much pressure on that finger). So I just tried it out and nothing. No feeling next to a power adaptor, nothing next to a microwave and it can’t even lift a staple anymore.
I have no idea what magnet I actually have in my finger, no idea about its coating or anything. I got it from a tattooist in London and when they installed it, they used a needle which they put in from the tip of the finger and then pushed the magnet in through the hole.
All I can say is that it is cylindrical shaped.
A couple of questions I have before I do anything.
Would it be dangerous to just leave it in there?
Now, if I’m going to take this one out (which I probably should), I would ideally like to use the the opportunity to just straight out swap the magnet and get the feeling back. Any ideas/suggestions?
Here is a picture which you can clearly see the “lump”.
