I just found out this afternoon I have to have my right breast implant removed due to an infection that somehow manifested after 2 months post op. I'm beyond upset, I'm absolutely devastated. I'll have to live with basically 1 breast for 3-6 months for the infection to heal and then have surgery to replace the Implant. Has this ever happened to anyone before? Just upset and looking for some insight from someone who has gone through this before. If you have, was your implant successful? How was recovery after the explant? How was life in between explant and reimplant? My surgeon said he will give me the implant once removed for my bra....The reason I had the surgery in the first place was to fix my insecurity of being so flat chested. Before all of these issues with the infection started I was SO happy with them. It's heartbreaking to have to have one removed after 2 months. I feel like now I'm worse off then when I went into it. If I was super insecure before with AA cups I'm sure after righty gets explanted and I'm stuck with a D cup and an AA cup I'll feel much worse. I know I just heard today but I feel really, really, down and I'm afraid of falling into depression until this is over.
