Pain with Implanon

I've checked the tags but there's only two other posts tagged as Implanon and neither really answer this question. I've also checked out the Implanon FAQs and the leaflet I got but this doesn't seem to be addressed there either.

I got Implanon fitted at my Family Planning Clinic last Monday and it was quite painful for the first couple of days, but I assumed it was just sore since there was a big bruise. However, now the bruise has gone down I'm still getting occasional pain when I bend my arm. Basically it feels like a pinch. I've noticed that the end of the implant seems to press against my skin when this happens and makes a visible 'lump'. None of the things I've read mention this so I'm worried that it hasn't been inserted properly, but I also don't want to drive all the way to the clinic and wait half an hour just to have them tell me everything's normal. Has anyone got any experience with this?
