Experience

Only issue would be when I went to get this changed after three years, it was lost in my arm as the nurse previously hadn’t put this in correct. I had to go to a specialist to get this removed which did freak me out a bit. But rarely happens and I had a new one reapplied. I would make sure you can feel it, if not go back to GP
