Failed attempt at the finger
I kinda saw it coming that I would fail.
This was my 16:th implant, 15:th done myself and I felt this was the most questionable.
The finger, I don't know what ya call it, but its the "fyck you" one.
I prepared with emla cream and some rom.
I did noticed that my finger started getting all shrinkly, like when you shower or bath too long, by the cream and shrink wrap, but was unsure about the consequences.
Howerer, like you kinda would guess, I guess, when the time came to install the implant (a DT xSLX) failure was a reality.
When I inserted the needle, my skin was like marzipan, this needle was not going to get UNDER the skin, it was gonna SHAVE off all my skin.
Gave it two tries.
Of course, I felt stupid, I should have gone for a no anesthesia (but some alcohol) instead.
but still unsure if that would be a success, my finger is small.
I tried the "karate" placement, on the right hand, but after a try, unsure about pain and stuff in the way, so thought that if I already have failed, I might just put it in a "sure" place, the left leg, not let the chip go to waste.
Boom, put it in.
Feel sad now however, this was going to be one of my last DT implants until something new and awesome appear, now I feel I need one more, or I have truly failed.
Long story short, have anyone successfully installed a glass implant in one of their fingers?
Feel like a failure, looking at my finger, it has more or less gone back to normal, no shrinking, if only I had tried without the emla anestesia and just installed it without no "pain managment", maybe I would have had success?
I just don't know any other placement for a new implant, but maybe you have any ideas?
