Ruptured implant with lymph node in the armpit
Hello sjf, I am sorry to hear about your problems. You have been unlucky in getting a capsular contracture in a year and now having a rupture. It is reasonable to remove your ruptured implant although I often leave the lymph nodes in the armpit unless they are causing problems but this is really something to go through with your surgeon.
Surgeons in the NHS are normal well trained and so I would hope that they would look after you. Good luck.
