I have had my saline implants for a little over 10 years. Five year into I developed lupus and it attacked my lungs. I believe implants caused my auto immune attacks. Fast forward 5 years I am now ready to remove them. I have consulted 5 ps and opinions are different. I am scared to go under general anesthesia since I already have a lung desease. Number 2 , there are different opinions on whether I shouldvremove the capsules or not. I have contracture. Very soft. I found one physician who does ivy sedation for removal and capuslectomy. I have been warned that are serious risks of bleeing with total capuslectomy. One ps tried to talk me out of it... Help! I am scared and confused but I am ready to be implant free
My surgery is scheduled for Monday April 23rd. I...

Today is 4th day after my removal and capsulectomy. The second day was rough as the anesthetia started to wear off. I was extremely sore and in a lot of pain. I was taking pain Meds every 4 hours and sleeping. My hubby and BFF made several trips to wholefoods for healthy nutrition. My loving husnabf fed me and woke me up every 4 hours to take my medication. I am feeling much better today. Thank god! I am down to 1 pain pill every 4 to 6 hours. I called my doctors office, the nurse said the pain is from the capsule removal.
Still I have I have 0 regrets. I would do it all over again! I am happy to be implant free. I keep thinking i cnnot complain, this is all self inflincted. It definately helps to have a supportive husband
Hoping to be back in the swing on things shortly. Stay blessed and strong

Had my one week post op visit yesterday, unfortunately I have fluid in my breasts ( I guess medical term is saroma) the doctor says while it's normal and body tend to absorb it over time, we don't want it to get infected. So I am going back Thursday morning for him to reassess and possibly drain it. I pray my body starts sucking up the fluid like now so he won't have to drain! If anyone has experienced this or has some recommendations on things I can do naturally please let me know.
Thanks ladies. God bless
Doctor and nurses are awesome. The lady collecting money is a bit abbrassive
