Three Kids, Implants 10 Years On, Pain & Decisions Ahead - United Kingdom

Had three kids by the time I was 28, breast fed...

Had three kids by the time I was 28, breast fed all of them, lost weight and was left with deflated boobs and low self esteem prevailed. Decided to get 380 implants..had them for 9 years no problems.. In the meantime, my mum was diagonised with breast cancer.. Then last year started suffering in very painful boobs, almost like mastitis.. Went for scan everything ok, but said it may be due to my body rejecting the implants, but couldn't say for definate this was the case and said as no lumps or other problems found, I would need to go private to have them removed, but also wouldn't guarantee that it was the implants causing this...(very non committal ) so I have an appointment book with a private clinic to see what they say. At this moment in time I want them out, but I'm scared of how I will look and if the problems I'm suffering from is due to the implants, but for health reasons the only way forward is for me to have them out.....

good luck and make the decision based on what's best for your health. the fact that you have pain is your body telling you there is something going on, whether it's the implants or not. keep us updated

hi happy2bme1,

Yur fears are understandable, but pls dont let the worry of the outcome get to u, if you read the reviews and see pics of all those women who have explant already, your worries will stay at bay.

Honestly, many of us feared that, its natural to, but the support we all got over here from eachother was stunning to sail thru this big deal decison. Go for it asap, u wont regret it.

All i can suggest is take out some time and read each and every reviews on here, u wont think twice!

Keep updating your decision!
