  • If I remember right, the swelling went down in a couple of days, I chewed on ice chips to help. I believe I had to keep the long bar in for a month and I went back and the guy changed it to the shorter bar. I don't think you have to have them change it, but my piercer was very much into his work and preferred that he do the first change.

  • Yeah, after a month the piercer should have you come back and they will change the bar to a shorter one.

    A word of advice, avoid the little plastic balls, they come loose to easy and you'll end up with rainbow poop lol.

    Oh and plastic bars are even worse :)

  • With mine the swelling went down after a couple of days. Ice chips definitely helped! I was told I could change in 10 to 15 days (as soon as ALL swelling is gone). I waited 10.
