Capsulectomy and axillary lymph node removal

I would recommend that you find a surgeon who is familiar with treating complications of breast implants including total capsulectomy and removal of silicone laden axillary lymph nodes, immune and endocrine support, treatment of co infections such as yeast and Lyme's and detoxification.  Very few surgeons have this experience and this is what is needed to regain your health.
