I received radiation treatment following breast cancer, which resulted in scar tissue being formed. I had a masectomy after a reocurrence in the same breast followed by implantation of silicone implants. Recently, some scar tissue snapped due to a sharp twist of my spine. The position of the implant shifted slightly and the implant became softer. Since that occurred, I have experienced constant gas and slight pain in the chest area and back areas.
Can Ruptured Silicone Implants Cause Gas to Develop in the Chest Area?
