Do you think this magnet should come out?
  • ChrisBotChrisBot November 2016
    I think I know the answer to that question, but I am really not looking forward to it, nor do I want to mess about with reimplanting.

    Any tips? Could it be saved? I am worried that the dark area is not just bruising but necrosis.... I really really really hope that isn't the case.

    Has it always protruded that far or is that new?

    Does it hurt?
  • ChrisBotChrisBot November 2016
    @misslitty, no I have always had the bump. I think that I have relatively thin skin, and it may have migrated upwards during the healing process. If the bump has increased in size then it has not be immediately noticeable. 

    @lvoTheSquire , Oddly enough I don't feel any pain around the magnet at all, but the skin on top of the implant is a bit tender and looks to be peeling slightly. Now when I had first implanted this during the summer, the skin peeled off in a large sheet, and continued doing so for a few weeks.

    I have a record of sensitive skin and my fingers always peel in the winter months(which is right about now for my location)

    Pics aren't the greatest, but it looks fine to me.  I've seen some that protrude way more than that after being fully healed.   The skin flaking off a few times after implanting is also normal; it happened to me, it happened to other people. 

    If it's not pussy, don't be fussy.

    @Proteus, haha, alright thanks for the reassurance.

    I don't think proteus meant to say pussy. Lol. As always.. Ibuprofen.. Ice.. Elevation.
  • ProteusProteus November 2016
    Don't tell me what I mean!
  • CassoxCassox November 2016
    Well then. By all means, be fussy if it's the pussy.
  • CassoxCassox November 2016
    I know you're doing the derivational morphology to make an adjective out of puss.. But can't we just say purulent? I know you'd have to change your rhyme. Like.. Don't get bent if it ain't purulent?

    So a bit of an update here.

    I had a bit of a hunch today and decided to lance it. At there was only blood. A few hours later it caught my eye again so I gave it a little squeeze and bam. Due to the greenish color I am assuming that the puss has been in there for a while. I squeezed it until it transitioned to white and eventually just clear liquid. Still think it's okay? :D

    I'd say get everything out that will come out and keep an eye on it. Don't take it out but don't force it back in if it starts moving out
