     apologies for potato.
    took out suture and washing in saline solution every few hours... 
  • Dragon5Dragon5 March 2015
    the wound itself has a yellowish color around the edges and the bump is there. but it's healed shut and is doing ok.. just the bump is annoying. hopefully it drops down or something...
  • Off topic, but are you an avid imgur-ite? The word "potato" hinted me in that direction.
  • Dragon5Dragon5 March 2015
    nicely spotted. yes i love imgur.
  • Dragon5Dragon5 March 2015
    also if anybody needs to ever take out their magnet. i would think this would work. but it worked for me... too well (sad face)  i decided to use a homeopathic route on taking down the swelling/yellow stuff in my incision . so my mom made me a mixture of flour water, and honey and onion... one day of that shit bandaged to my finger and both the yellow stuff and the magnet were gone . shit sucked it up like it was another magnet getting my magnet out.  pretty crazy shit. but now my magnet's out.   
    suppose  i'll just get it re-implanted . ... third time's the charm they say? 
    hopefully second for me ( fingers crossed)
  • CassoxCassox March 2015
    Dragon5, do you have any photos of the yellow? Was is clear crusty yellow or opaque puss type of yellow? Any more details?
  • glimsglims March 2015
    -_-

    This is like a game where people say or do things to get me to flip out, isn't it?

    You had an issue and then you rubbed bread dough on your finger.
    _homeopathic_ bread dough. 

    *throws up hands, turns off internet*


  • Dragon5Dragon5 March 2015
    lol  it may sound crazy but i shit you not it works. it just worked too well. and the pus was an opaque type of yellow. 
  • CassoxCassox March 2015
    Yeah, is an old school method. Takes out splinters rather well. And magnets apparently. Ok, so seriously going to focus on a post care guide now though.
  • Dragon5Dragon5 March 2015
    yeah probably a good idea. maybe like adress different scenarios and how to respond based on visual assessment, fairly straightforward

  • chironexchironex March 2015
    I'm with glims on this one. I may have broken my desk via the "homeopathic" head desk method. Next time you really should be taking ibuprofen to reduce swelling and constantly reapplying triple antibac. All of which i presume will end up in the post care thing but at this point straying from that is just silly. No sweet onion bread. No healing crystals. Just stick to to the norm, it works. The pus sounded like it was the same stuff that comes out of a fresh piercing (lymph) so was probably fine but im not a doctor (yet.... muhahaha). Depends how long after the implant it happened. But ya seriously keep herbals and such away from this. Don't get me wrong, they can work great for non surgical matters. I taught a fricken course on them. But I would never advise using home remedies for this. EVER.
  • Dragon5Dragon5 August 2015
    haha @chironex  point taken. BUT MY CRYSTALS :(   
  • trybalwolftrybalwolf August 2015
    "BUT MY CRYSTALS :("

    I'm dying here. Laughing way too hard at this.
  • ElectricFeelElectricFeel August 2015
    MUH CRYSTALS
    that should be a section of just terrible homeopathic remedies you've run across
  • MeanderpaulMeanderpaul August 2015
    This is great my wife is all about the homeopathics and I stand with the face to iPad.
  • Dragon5Dragon5 August 2015
    Speaking of after care guide- did we ever get that written up? because i've tried finding it in the wiki and here but no luck so far... @Cassox ?
  • cyberlasscyberlass August 2015
    @Dragon5, looks like he (they?) did:
    http://wiki.biohack.me/Standard_Magnet_Implantation_Procedure

    http://wiki.biohack.me/After_Care

    Also <3 you all for the hilarious responses in this thread.
  • Dragon5Dragon5 August 2015
    THANK YOU!  bookmarked. and thanks
  • chironexchironex August 2015
    im bogged down by projects but I hope at some point this year to up how we do aftercare on this. I know glims had a thing that sped healing but I wanna make a sealing agent that'd do all the hard work for you as it were. Accelerate healing, keep the wound closed and keep the whole thing sterile. Something that isn't as nasty as superglue. But for now, the aftercare guide is to the point we will hopefully avoid further incident with homeopathic pizza dough closures. :P
  • GriskardGriskard August 2015
    I actually accidentally came across some methods for applying a surface to TiN that accelerated healing to the TiN, but I can't find it just at the moment, I think it is on my other computer.
  • Dragon5Dragon5 August 2015
    something that could be applied to the site to keep it together after the stitches are taken out would be extremely helpful. is superglue an actual option?  i didn't think it was...
  • cyberlasscyberlass August 2015
    @Dragon5 - That would be Dermabond "If you choose not to use a suture, then you can use a medical grade super-glue called Dermabond. Dermabond does a pretty good job at preventing infection as you can form a serious little glue cap right over the incision site. It isn't all that mechanically strong though, so if you use Dermabond, then you should also be using Benzoin tincture and steri-strips. "

  • glimsglims August 2015
    After you remove the stitches, a steri strip should be enough. 
  • Dragon5Dragon5 August 2015
    @cyberlass thanks . and glims, the hardest part would be judging when exactly to remove the stitches. i think last time i did it ok,  but it swelled after i removed them so who knows. just having a bottle of this to apply so i can rest assured it's nice and sealed together would be stress relieving.

  • glimsglims August 2015
    Three to five days should about do it. Anything longer and you run into complications.
  • cyberlasscyberlass August 2015
    @chironex with your statement "The pus sounded like it was the same stuff that comes out of a fresh piercing (lymph) so was probably fine but im not a doctor.... " -- could you speak a little more about that?  We don't really mention that in the wiki anywhere in after care. If that's fine/normal we should probably add it in.
  • chironexchironex August 2015
    When you get a piercing (and not an implant) as the body tries to close the wound one thing that ends up in the area is lymph which is basically the fluid that is used to transport things around your lymphatic system. For a piercing you just clean it off and it's a non issue. I'm not sure anymore if it applies to something like this as it really shouldn't be leaking. But it could be. Only way to find out would be to get someone wiht a leaky implant that seems like it's leaking lymph and test it. 
  • ElectricFeelElectricFeel August 2015
    How do you test it?
  • mmuyskensmmuyskens August 2015
    Taste test?
  • chironexchironex August 2015
    No clue. There's bound to be an assay you could run. Best guess would be to take a sample and culture it and see if it's bactierial in origin but it'd be hard to get a clean sample in that it's shit that's leaking out of you. Id bet a med tech would know a better way to test for something like that. @Cassox thoughts?
  • CassoxCassox August 2015
    I don't think you'd even need to run a test. If it's a clear fluid coming from an incision, it's lymph. I have a standard after care thing I've been telling people based on incision care guides. I'll have them online before the fest I think.

    Hello there!

    I have some gold coated magnets ready to be shipped.

    Respond if you are interested and we can fix an excellent price!

    Greetings.
  • Dragon5Dragon5 May 2016
     @Cassox Pretty damn sure Vytis8 is a spambot.
    also. i think we can retire this thread.

Howdy, Stranger!
