I (unknowingly) had the banned PIP implants fitted in '99. Scan last yr revealed they were intact. Had mastopexy/ uplift today and surgeon found on had completely ruptured! I've been having inv for 6/12 for ? Rh Arthritis/ lupus (painful limbs etc) but all bloods were negative. Putting 2+2 together and think due to implant Ieakage. Scared. Will this stuff always be in my system or will it be expelled now implants are gone? Not worried about cancer etc- just leakage long term effects.
Had Mastopexy and Uplift. Surgeon Found a Rupture! I've Been Having Systemic Symptoms. Is It Likely to Be Due to Leakage?
