  • If there's a list I can get on for the m31's, definitely sign me up for a couple.
  • No worries! I still have a bunch I never even touched, and I will be sure to test them again. I might even end up purchasing the 4x1's, as opposed to the 3x1.5's I have now.
  • Well! This morning, it was beginning to look a little black, when I poked into it again, I received a little what appeared to me as bloody pus, orange-ish and watery. I then decided it was time to remove it. I apologize in advance for the terrible q…
  • I haven't received any more pus buildup. I will keep an eye out for it. I am taking ibuprofen to try and reduce swelling. I can't say I've noticed much change in the last 24 hours. Still a bit darker and swollen. When do you think I should call it q…
  • Well, It doesn't seem to have gotten any worse. I did manage to drain a bit more from it, and I don't think it's refilling. I do believe the redness has gone down a little as well. Today is day seven, so I bought some butterfly closures, and removed…
  • So.. Update: I had no real problems for the first few days. Pain was minimal, didn't seem very swollen, I've changed my dressing regularly, saline, triple antibiotic, and gauze. Here is a picture from day 2, I believe: http://postimg.org/image/tgv…
  • I know it's in about every post above this, and so it pains me to say, I don't have much in the way of pictures... But I will certainly post what I do have shortly, and take more as the healing process goes. I do have a magnet in my left ring fing…
  • Do not worry, friend! Don't think I'm playing with them. One did get scratched, that was a mistake. But I assure you the utmost care is being taken now on. Last things are being acquired tomorrow. Will return then!
  • Magnets are out of the water! However, I am cautious. They sat for three days in salt water. Only one of them (which I was fairly certain I had already scratched) rusted. I carefully tucked them away for the impending procedure. The rest of them see…
  • I don't believe I have a way of testing the grade of my magnets. So long as the magnet is noticeable, I won't worry. Finger's crossed though! And I will certainly keep you updated! And of course, I'll try to put everything about the testing, proce…
  • Haha, of course. Magnets should be here sooner than everything else, will be testing them in salt water for a few days. And yes! Will take good care of my finger for many weeks to come. Thank you all! Will return in a matter of weeks with the good n…
  • I have ordered the supplies. Gold 3x1.5mm neodymium magnets, found here:http://www.gaussboys.com/store/index.php/d0301g.html   In hindsight, I feel I should use the 4x1mm from the first post. I won't worry too much, but will the extra half a milimet…
  • Thank you, I've seen more people performing nerve blocks than local, will probably go that route. I appreciate it! Does anyone have any input on sourcing proper silicone?
  • Alright, did you perform a nerve block? And I'm a bit cautious about implanting a magnet, while a gold coating may be fine, I think I'm going to play it extra safe and add a thinner layer of silicone. Has anyone had any issues with gold-plated magne…
