Contact your doctor, I have a nexplanon implant and I took the bandage off 4hrs after i had the implant put in even though I was supposed to leave it on for 2 days (I hated the feeling of the bandage). I then rode and did stable chores that evening (so about 8hrs after implant).
apart from a bit of bruising round the site of the implant and being unable to sleep on that arm for a couple of days i have never had a problem with it.
For my implant they gave 1 small numbing injection, then a small incision and slipped the implant under the skin then wrapped it.
There was no blood and very little weeping!
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
