The way technology is going for us we wont need antibiotics for much longer.

Flexable technology is nice, but nanotechnology would be nicer

Some of us have "veins" that are bigger than others.  Garden hose is appropriate for us.

Pornstars will be the first: being able to modulate sensation for endurance and completion on cue will mean more elaborate and extended porn choreography. Regular men will get the operation to keep up, but at the same time performance expectations in their partners will skyrocket. When people start getting self-conscious and neurotic as to whether anything they feel about sex is real, new and exciting forms of sexual dysfunction will be discovered.

Damn, cause I ain't even got erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation yet, I still only got, 'not gettin' any'.

flexible enough to wrap around a nerve

FINALLY we can get the "direct neural stimulation" torture that sci fi has been promising!

We've had that. Nerve conduction velocity tests.

I still have hope, but I need a new spine first. Call me when they get that perfected.

The optimist in me sees nanotech as an awesome way to fight infections. Inject yourself with nanobots, program them to fight off a certain disease, and voila....safe from any infectious disease forever. But the cynic inside me sees it being made prohibitively expensive or even worse abused to suck money out of people. "Oh, you only have the version 1.0 update for common cold, a new common cold strain just came out. Please pay us 5,000 dollars for your upgrade to version 1.1. You can also get a discount on version 1.2 but not guaranteed to fight the next strain." And then applications for weapons...imagine if a large population has these things injected and you send an update for the nanobots to start attacking healthy cells.

Just wait for the platelet-to-bloodclot aliens to get you in their hands, you'll be skullfarked into last medieval periods, plausibly before the geeks.

/some of us have tattletale tendons for those unruly extra-circumferential vascular organs known as veins. Some of us have mutant hearts. Some of us want pigs in our hole-wallets so we can speak easily when we fight.

Others just want a grill.

I don't need  Felgraf to tell you that we are ridiculously far away from anything like what you described from being possible, if it even is. Nanobots that fight specific diseases would probably have to be 'programmed' (built and designed) before injection and during manufacturing, and updates to existing nanobots would not be very realistic. Updates to how nanobots are produced could exist, and  perhaps a 'station' inside the body could  maybe modify circulating drones, but independent nanobots not powered by very precise, delicate magnets or some other non-electrical system (as such a system probably can't exist or be sophisticated) would almost certainly be fine tuned from the start for a specific task, and not be modifiable.

/OTOH, the shiat people are thinking of to do with the rudimentary nanotechnology we can work with is pretty awesome
