I'm experiencing pain with lifting or certain movements and a full constant ache. I know my saline implant is ruptured?

Saline above the muscle implants redid in 2006. Noticed during pregnancy that it was shrinking. The pain is getting much worse I have an appointment in a week can it wait and is the pain normal

You know when saline implants rupture because they become smaller.The pain may be due to a tear in your capsule.I would go see your surgeon to let him examine you.It is not an emergency.

That pain is not normal and you should be seen by a plastic surgeon. No one here can tell you if it is ruptured. You need an examination.
