My birth control broke in my arm what do I

Patient: I have the nexplanon birth control and it broke inside my arm tonight. It happened about 3 hours ago I went to scratch didn’t even push that hard and I heard it snap and when I go to feel it it doesn’t feel like it should now. Is it something that needs removed immediately or can it wait?

 

 

Symptoms: Burning and itching
