Has any one here gotten the implant? I got it yesterday (kind of surprisingly - I’ve known for a while I wanted to get it so I went in for a consult and they were like, we can do it right now if you want so it was like, okay I guess we’re doing this). The doctor made it seem like the recovery was going to be pretty minimal, but right now it hurts like hell. I know that I have a pretty low pain tolerance, but it basically hurts too much to move my arm right now. Like, needed lots of help getting dressed this morning and had to ask a coworker to open a water bottle for me hurts. Is this normal or should I be concerned? Also, the doctor said I could take the bandage off last night but it still hurt so badly I wasn’t sure if I should. Should I take the bandage off? Would that make it better or worse?

God, I hope this is worth it.
