Successful Implanation & Video
After lots of posts, advice from the board, and a botched first attempt, I'm thrilled to report that my implantation went super smoothly yesterday. I've got a video up, a writeup, and will have continuing updates on healing on my blog as well.
Thanks so much for everyone that gave advice, and especially to this board in general for sneaking into an unrelated search I was doing on magnets and inspiring me to get an implant in the first place!
For anyone looking for reference, my blog also has my shopping list, my surgical plan, and a number of lessons I learned from a bungled first attempt.
