I got my first implant on Monday, bruised up which I expected
However, now I feel it digging into me and poking sensation which really hurts! I'm scared to move my arm at this point

Is this normal while healing it should I be concerned? Anyone had similar?
Thank you 😊

Sorry I don't know OP, but I'll bump the thread for you, and hopefully someone will be along in a minute to help.

I have never been able to feel any of mine, I would definitely get that checked out

When I got mine replaced last year it felt like that for a few weeks but then it settled in and stopped pinching when I moved my arm.

Sometimes whilst the healing is taking place, the tissue inside your arm can feel a little tight. But it should feel like digging in. If it doesn't settle (you shouldnt be able to feel it at all once healed) then I'd get it checked.

Thank you for the replies.
I'll give it until Monday and see how it is. Just feels like someone is digging a needle into me and a stinging sensation after. I just assumed it was normal but pain is getting worse.
Thanks again all

Mine felt like that for the first few weeks

I've had three. They've all felt like that for a month or so. I can't remember exactly how long, but it surprised me it was a while. They all settled down.

I’ve had 3, the first 2 I wasnt aware of at all. The last one bloody hurt for months. Every time I bent my arm to take a drink or whatever I would get a really sharp stabbing feeling. I went back to family planning after 2 weeks and they said as it was in a new site it would feel uncomfortable and to go back after 3 months if I was still getting the pain. Think it stopped after about a month and no issues with it now.
