Glad They're Gone but So Disappointed, Any Advice? - Bradford, United Kingdom

This site has been brilliant, its been a real comfort , though i could do with a boost now in more ways than one!

I had implants 17 years ago when my boobs were wrecked by my 2nd child, i never wanted to be bigger but was sold at least a double d, ive never really liked the size but they have been very natural looking and problem free. In october i found lumps under my arms and thought the worst but turns out they were silicone from a rupture. My consultant persuaded me to have them out without a lift and said he would remove them en bloc!

So im two days post op and though glad to be free of all that awful toxic silicone, im horrified at how awful they are, they look caved in to me and the consultant said that wouldnt change, which obviously made me cry. I've also discovered they have left capsules in and not done it en bloc, i understand this scar tissue can hold silicone droplets and bacteria. Please tell me there really is a fluff fairy, will post pics soon

So 2 weeks on and I have developed a seroma under...

So 2 weeks on and I have developed a seroma under my arm where they removed large amounts of silicone from my lymph, had it drained twice but it's painful and infected, also got a cord vein running down my arm from my arm pit which feels like trapped nerve BUT apart from that I'm pleased with them, clothes look better, I just can't wait for all the complications to pass! Starting Pilates tonight so that should help,onwards and upwards!
NHS

Def check it out. Best to be safe. Also, they will change. Mine are far from great but def a huge improvement from when they were 1st removed. That's naughty saying he removed the capsules when he never. There's such mixed opinion about capsules, mine were removed but not sure they needed to be-may have added to emptiness in my case. I'm not sure. So long as he got all if the ruptured silicone out your body will hopefully get rid naturally. Spaniels ears is right(great name!) rest and thank goodness all that silicone has gone-can't be good for the body, no matter what they say x

You were right it was a seroma, having nothing but trouble with it! Still at least it should pass! X

Ah Hun, have they said it will go itself? il find another review for you who had the same issue (nhs) he said he had removed capsules and hasn't and she had seroma numerous times and the reason was because he left the capsules in-they had to be removed. Hopefully you will be fine. Your looking great xx

Try not to worry the main thing is they are gone. So many surgeons have different opinions regarding the capsule it is very hard to get a definitive answer. If they removed the parts where the leaks are that really is the worst of it. Try to focus on recovery n being kind to yourself. You have put your body through a lot so ypu deserve to relax now and concentrate on how fantastic it is to be free of those toxic bags and natural again.good luck.to you x

Don't panic, it's early days. They will change loads. I'm still flat as but they have changed from when they were removed. I know it's hard, but don't look at them....I did mine all the time! it does no favours. Rest up, and know you did the right thing for your health xx

Thanks, they are changing for the better already, or I'm imaging it, just having problems with one where nodes removed swelling up!

I do worry about capsule having absorbed toxic matter, especially now one is swelling up like a water balloon and the other is the size of a peanut! Thanks for your support
