Implants in for 6+ Years - Thought Was Rupture but Was an Infection
I've had my implants in for 6+ years... I had some pain about 3 months ago in the breast but thought nothing of it. A few weeks ago I felt my right implant could "push" in so I went to see my surgeon, had an ultrasound and it was determined by right implant had ruptured. I had surgery to remove my implant, and they discovered that the implant was actually intact. I had actually had an infection that has eaten the shell away and had a thick white pus. Has anyone heard of this before?
