Sharp pain in reconstructed breast. Can I have my implants changed?
8 months ago
It's been 15 years since my mastectomy and reconstruction. I've had sharp pains on and off for a few years. Now it's become constant and quite painful. I'm 64 years old. Can I have my implants changed?

If you are having pain like that you should be seen and examined by a Plastic Surgeon. The implant itself, the capsule around the implant or both maybe the issue.
