This case cannot, of course, be addressed adequately or resolved via this forum; you need to be seen in person by your PS. If you have any hesitations or concerns you should seek additional opinions.
However, it sounds like you may need to have the capsules removed which, depending on exactly what is done, would be a total or partial capsulectomy. A total capsulectomy would be more desirable except that for submuscular implants the posterior (back) portion of the capsule is often closely adherent to the ribcage and paticular caution must be used when removing it.
I am sorry for your ongoing symptoms but you may need to have another surgical procedure.
I hope that this helps and good luck,
