Getting a Little Nervous About Explantation - UK

Hi, I am having my PIP implants removed next...

Hi, I am having my PIP implants removed next Monday 20th August. this has been booked for a while and I'm actually having it done on the NHS due to my clinic (Harley Medial Group) being hopeless. I have 290cc right and left above muscle, since 2003 (I was a 32 A, now a 34 C/D). I don't have any symptoms or rupture as far as the scan showed, however I have been getting sick of having the implants for a couple of years now, and the PIP scandal was the final straw. I have been reading reviews on this site for weeks now and they have helped me so much.. they are real and heartfelt and I certainly don't think I'd have plucked up the courage without this. Nobody knows I had the implants apart from my boyfriend and mu auntie! So feeling very alone and worried about how I'll feel about myself afterwards. I know it's the right thing to do.. I just worry about the first few weeks.. I've only booked myself a week off work and commute 100 miles daily! Oops! xx

Wow, that is one long commute! I'm sorry you got the PIPS. I hope you enjoy being implant free. A lot of ladies on RealSelf report feeling very light and free after explantation. Fingers crossed that that will be you as well. Please keep us updated!
