All right everyone, it’s been two years that I have implants in the first joint of each thumb. If you have any questions,happy to help & answer :)
The likelihood of losing one's hand is directly, and proportionately, depependent upon their research into this procedure. Outside chance, yes, but the risks are REAL. And YES, LOTS of people have had magnets rejected from implantation! I am glad the reader, and others, are doing that research! I DO hope what I write…
Perhaps those without the procedure done should just learn From observation, and judge everyone else post-operatively. Learn from my experience, my regrets, my story. This is simply my story. Ignore anyone who tells you what you can or cannot do to your body. It's YOUR BODY. God gave it to you, it did not come with any…
Meanderpaul, I do not mean to ever give off that I do not like questions! I love them. I just have a very casual style of writing. I am not here to advocate implants, or to discourage them, I am just trying to share a real time line of the experience. I apologize if my writing style offended you... Seriously.
Passing out is not predictable. You cannot know ahead of time. Bring a friend. Passing out also has little to do with pain, more about the realization that your body is different. If you have been pierced/modified before without passing out, you will be ok :)
Numbing discussions... Numbing is and up to your implanter. My post did not say whether or not i had been numbed. There was a reason I was vague, ya big dummy. My Source was good, sterlizied in front of me. At home is dumb... Read around, you WILL REJECT with a scalpel. Sometimes, no big deal. Other times, YOU LOSE YOUR…
I feel like I should also add some regrets... Maybe little lessons if you are considering this hack. 1. In retrospect, I would have done one implant at a time. I guess two at a time would be OK if they were both in the same hand (placed FAR apart of course). But when you get them in matching locations on two hands, an…
It's about 2 weeks later! Let me address each comment and happy to share this experience with you :) Yes, mine were in fact N52, strongest possible. And yes, same kind they use in the iPad cover, and along the edge of the iPad itself. So for healing time, I just type with my hands a bit more 'upright' rather than laying…
Wow, it's a week later, and WHAT a week! I've had a few questions I can & cannot answer, let's get those out of the way now: GAUSS RATING of your implants: that's a very specific measurement of the stregth of magnetic 'pull.' Well, when an implant is THIS small, the relative gauss if highly dependent upon the distance of…

Fascinated, love seeing you do your homework here and following!
Thanks, Zerbula - after lots of piercing and tattoos, I am crazy with following post-op. That is excellent advice and will be a part of my update to come.
