Hello. I think just for the purpose of putting you at ease and making sure it didn't shift when you were picking up your child, give the doc a call and have it looked at. I am sure the nurse or someone would take a quick look.
Perhaps this is not the best choice for you considering how much trouble you are having. Hope you can get some help with this soon. With all the action raising these little ones you are probably over stressing your arm. Not to mention your older one pulling at your arm and all the bumping.
And just a quick FYI. After a woman has a baby they are far more fertile than are normally. So don't forget that part while adjusting.
Hope this is settled for you very soon.
Part of you question got cut off. You may need to go back in and add the rest of your question but I'm going to attempt to answer some. It is normal for the site to be sore for several day to perhaps even a couple of weeks. I mean you did have several little small plastic "sticks" shoved in under the skin!! You can take an OTC pain reliever for the pain and an ice pack to the site can help with pain and inflammation just besure to keep the area dry. You can remove the top bandage but the bottom bandage should be left in place for 3-5 days. You are supposed to be able to feel these implants. They are supposed to be inserted just below the skin. If they are implanted to deep they can require surgery to remove and there is a possibility that they can migrate so it is perfect that you can see and feel them. If you experience increased warmth, redness, swelling, or oozing where the implant was inserted you need to call your prescriber asap; if you develop sudden numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body; severe pain or cramping in your pelvic area (may be only on one side); sudden headache, confusion, pain behind the eyes, you need to go to the ER. Dont discount the power of an ice pack to the area to help with the insertion pain, just be sure that the pack doesnt get the area wet. If I didnt answer all of your questions please add to your original question. Dzoo.
