Hi I had my implants replaced back in April due to them being the toxic PIP ones that had been recalled in Australia. Operation went well a little more painful than the first but recovered well. 1 month ago I started getting some hard knotting like scaring at bottom of left hand breast, now red and itchy hot to touch with skin peeling off the surface and blackish area. Does anyone know what this could be ?

Breast Inflamation following Implant Switch.
A picture is not as good as an in person exam and 5 months out would be late, but I would be concerned about implant infection and/or threatened implant extrusion. Get to your plastic surgeon ASAP!
