Possible Implant Rupture

I have previously had my implants removed and replaced 3 times now. Since the last op which was to remove and replace my left implant due to capsular contracture, I have since experienced severe pain and discomfort, I have also found around 8 small lumps surrounding the implant. I have been chasing my surgeon for around nine months now with no joy. I have been sent for an ultrasound which came up clear. The only answer I have been given is it "may be" cysts, but no definitive answer. Because of the pain I have been prescribed very strong painkillers which effect my ability do to every day things and is really getting me down and effecting my work. My worry is after hours upon hours of research I have done all my symptoms are pointing toward Siliconomas. The fact my doctor doesn't seem to be showing any interest is also worrying me as I keep getting pushed away with no answers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'm sorry your surgeon isn't more accessible. That sounds really frustrating! Have you considered making an appointment with another board certified plastic surgeon for another opinion?
