Re: Strattice mesh implant/ another question

Is it an expander implant or a regular silicon implant - when i had the strattice plus expander it did look a funny shape - now it has been exchanged to silicon it looks like a normal shaped boob

Hi Hay123, Iv had the same suegery and symptoms, Get it checked out as sometimes the fluid can get trapped - which could give you pain. The implant needs time to settle and i have been told this can take 6 weeks or more - dependent on the individual.

I hope this is helpful.

Strattice mesh implant/ another question

hi had strattice mesh reconstruction a week ago, all seems ok apart from the pain near breast bone/ pressure which is meant to be normal. I had drain out on Friday but the breast seems swollen and more flat/oblong looking today.Specialist said on Friday it got a lot of settling to do. But just concern about the flatten swollen look.
