How long was your arm sore after the insert? It's been a day and my arm is still super tender just wondering how long it took your arm to get adjusted to the implant...thanks :)

I have it it been in there for 1 1/2 years and I don't remember it ever bring sore when they put it in. May be bc I have a high pain tolerance and I'm sensitive to meds so the lidocaine was pretty strong for me.

It's weird, mine isn't really sore it's just tender and kinda uncomfortable. Mine is very superficial and really close to the surface so i'm wondering if that's why mine feels so weird

Took about a week for me to stop noticing it was there. Its still tender if I touch it but if I leave it alone its not noticable. Had it since end of November.

I had a horrid bruise. Even posted a pic of it on here before. People couldn't believe it.

This is today and I got it in yesterday..it's still pretty tender and I feel like a pinching feeling under the skin. Dr said it's normal so hopefully it goes away soon.

Yeah I can see it through the skin and if I move my arm a certain way the whole thing can be seen sticking up and the end closest to my armpit rises up pretty high and I get a pinching feeling. If it doesn't change in a few days i'm definitely going back to the dr

You have to remember you're still swollen too. It won't be as noticeable once the swelling goes down.



This is my bruising. I got it inserted at 10am and this pic was taken at 11pm the same day.
The lines are from where the bandaid was on me.

Your bruising looks awful mine isnt as bruised but I can see the rod so visibly and when I move a certain way I get this terrible pinching and burning feeling...Im gonna give a few weeks to see if it eases up and call the doctor just in case
