Yes, I know that it is something that we all worry about.

However this case feels a little bit special, since the possible infection signs came 18 months after the procedure, from an unknown distant source.
This causes a real concern and source of stress for me, since this means that the implant can get infected at any time, capsule or not.

Sorry, this was kind of off topic.

Yes I did. One month after I was implanted my pain and swelling not only was not going away but was getting worse. Then I started having hallucinations and fever. My local urologist told me to immediately contact the surgeon. 24 hours later I was in the OR and my implant was removed. I was in septic shock and almost died. I have to wait 6 months and on Dec 14th I get my implant back. BE CAREFUL. If you have any signs of infection, see a doctor immediately.

To add to Larry's point, any sign of infection: pain the groin, hard shiny spot on your scortum. Do not wait for fever, it will be too late. GO TO EMERGENCY, you need to be on Antibiotic right away. Tell them you just had implant, they will take that very very seriously. Then the next morning you call your surgeon.
Also, the chances you get an infection during the surgery is quite low. It'll be mostly acquired after the fact, so maintain good hygiene and do not rush sex.

Yup, good point. Infection does not necessarily mean you will lose the implant, just if it's too late to save it (or you).
