Pain months after silicon implant swap

Hi,  I had a mastectomy and silicon implant for cancer in 2010, then opted for preventative mx a year later.  I’ve had all manner of problems with the preventative side, but the last one was capsular contraction meaning they had to do a swap of the implant/scar revision in June.

 

I now have hollowing above the implant, plus some pain - it’s hard to describe, but feels like there’s no tissue to cushion the implant, so it’s grinding on the bones, also slightly tingly nerve type pain.  Just wondering if anyone else has had this at all? My surgeon mentioned putting some fat on top of the bones before the last implant swap, but I’m skinny so she’s not sure where to take it from. Getting a bit fed up…!

 

 

Just bringing this post back to the top for Juile, hopefully someone may be able to help her here?

The helpline is also available Juile if you would like to give them a ring.  Calls are free 0808 800 6000.

Take care.
