Haha don't worry about it, I probably should have been more specific in the title! emoticon

Nope! We are not. LOL!

When someone says "implant", I immediately think of breast augmentation. So sorry! emoticon

Wow! A nurse can do the surgery there? That would NEVER happen here!

We had extensive conversations about the type, size, location, and look I wanted.

It does sound like it's over. The ones that are under are quite high to start with and then"settle" as time goes on. With over, once the swelling has gone down you have what you have. I like over better, as I didn't like the idea of stretching my muscle and there is a chance that the implants can "travel" when doing chest moves into the armpit if you lift super heavy.

A nurse (they are done in the Dr. office in the UK) did mine and she didn't really say where it was going, but I'm assuming it's above because I don't have to press hard to find it.

Your surgeon didn't discuss with you whether they are over or under? Most like to go under, but I wanted over and was grateful when my surgeon suggested the same.

Mine feels pretty close to the skin so I shouldn't think that it's gone under! I do get sensitive skin sometimes, maybe the area is just super sensitive now?

If you went under the muscle it's going to take about a year for things to go to where they should be and healing to be full. I went over, so that might be why I didn't experience this.

Thanks for your reply. I guess it's still settling down, hopefully it'll die down in a month or so! It could also be my crazy mind, I tend to make up pain/itches and things all the time! If it bugs me I'll see the Dr!

I have not experienced this (that I remember), but I'm sure that tissue around the nerve endings where the incisions were made are "coming back" and healing. One of the signs of healing is itching. So I'd venture a guess that when you work this area (which would happen with push-ups), you are increasing the blood flow, and it naturally itches.

However, I'd email my surgeon about it, just to be sure. He or she should be at your avail for the next year or so. And they are usually happy to answer questions like this.

I hope this helps! And I hope you are enjoying the effects of your surgery!

(Sorry if this is in the wrong place!)

I have had nexplanon for 3 months now and I love it. Only thing is, when I exercise and do say, push-ups the site where the implant is itches. Not straight away though. I guess it could be my imagination (I'm good at imagining things when it comes to my body) but has anyone else experienced this?

It also goes away if I ignore it!
