Patient : I've had nexplanon fitted 48 hours ago however I'm still experiencing pain in the insertion site. Hurts to bend the arm and do some normal day to day activities. Is it normal for it to be this sore? The rod is palpable and just under the skin. I found when I bend my arm, it feels like the implant is being pushed up causing sharp pains.
