Healing


I figured I would snap a picture to give an idea of the strength of the magnet. It's just powerful enough to suspend a large paperclip (2" long).

The region around the implant continues to heal. Today the area around the magnet is particularly tender, moreso than since the first day. The region immediately surrounding the implant is slightly discolored, almost bruised looking (as opposed to the entire side of the finger being discolored the past few days.)

Maybe the new tenderness has to do with the nerves in the area rebuilding and bonding with the magnet, or somehow becoming attuned to its presence?

It's entirely likely... it's getting more sensitive by the day!
