I have been doing quite a bit of research on getting a walletmor, and I am interested in understanding the risks/how risky this is. I understand that it is not particularly risky, but even so, I feel it is good to understand the possible bad stuff and how likely it is.
I currently have the walletmor, and hopefully I’ll get a LAKS mini, too.
I have referred to this document for inspiration: https://dangerousthings.com/wp-content/uploads/Professional-Guide-to-2x12mm-transponder-installation.pdf but also various other sources from dangerousThings and walletmor.
I would like to put the walletmor in L3 since you have to align the chip with the terminal and L0 feels awkward to do whenever I simulate it. This is also the location suggested by walletmor if I understand correctly.
What can go wrong during and after the installation from a medical standpoint? I note that the installation itself can be performed improperly (too downward): Examples of problematic installations
But I also wonder: there are two major nerves in the hand and several veins. What happens if these are severed? Are the installers intentionally avoiding them for the entry point? The spots chosen in videos seems to be on convenience. However, nobody on the forums seems to have incurred long term nerve damage except one (lost sensation above implant), that I found.
Nobody seems to have had issue with damaging tendons/synovial sheaths which seems positive, but is probably in my mind one of the biggest risks.
There is always infection, but that seems obvious.
I would be interested in people’s thoughts and experiences.
