Just had a Breast Augmentation and I feel like I'm catching the flu! Could this effect my implants?

Sick after a breast augmentation
Hi I'm sorry you are not feeling well. It is not uncommon for people to feel a little run down after surgery and the best thing you can do is to take care of yourself, rest and lots of fluids. Overloading on the vitamin C isn't going to help you and if it makes you feel good, then that's fine. It is unlikely that if you really are getting the flu, that it is going to effect your implants. Get well soon
Breast Augmentation and the Flu
Vitamin C has no effect on viral syndromes like the flu or the common cold, so you can stop. As for increasing your risk for a bacterial infection of your implants, this too will not be the case either. Sorry you're sick; also you can do is ride it out. Best of luck!
