I did not consider any cons at the time. All I knew was: I may die from cancer soon, and if I'll survive, I wanted to look "normal" after bilateral mastectomy. I was not told about life of the implants, about MRIs to check them,etc.
I am 60 years old. I have saline implants for 17 years after bilateral mastectomy. They look and feel OK. Should I do anything to make sure they are OK? I never had an MRI or ultra sound to check them. I fact, I only see my OBGYN once a year and she never mentioned anything in this regard. Please advise. Thank you.
