Hi, I have had pips in now since November 2002 after breast feeding two children and wanting to get the fullness back in my breasts, as to me they looked like 34B empty sacks. Went to a 34D at first but as time has gone by and put on a bit of weight and ot older i am now a 36E and they feel very heavy. Started having pain in them a few months before pip scandal broke but ultasound and mri tests came back all clear.
Went back to original surgeon and explained about problems with pain I had and that pip scandal had made me feel worse. He said he was happy to help and that I would suit a replacement as they would look empty and droopy if I didn't have them replaced! Felt he was too quick to push me in for a replacement at £3800 cost without considering my feelings.
Went home and soul searched and talked it over with my husband who never wanted me to have them done in the first place but will always support me whatever I choose and decided i didnt want the hassle of having to go through a replacement in another 10-15 years time as not getting any younger so decided to just get them removed and be done with it, the relief I felt after that decision was brilliant and pressure of not having to find the money for replacements gone and thinking uncomfortableness will all be over very soon.
Am due to get my explant in two days time and now starting to get really nervous about the operation, worrying about being put to sleep and pain after etc is that normal?
