I decided to get implants back in the beginning of May after a trip my husband and I took to Florida. I have always had a thin model like figure and desired to be curvier. I had my breast done on December of last year with absolutely no problems so I didn't think this would be much different. I was wrong. I wish I would have done more research before I made the decision to have the surgery. The first three days I couldn't get out of bed, It was the worst pain I had ever felt in my life. After the third day the pain did reside some so that I could tip toe to the bathroom by myself without assistance. Sitting down was way out of the question. This went on for almost two weeks. When my two week check up came along I was able to walk without noticeably limping but still couldn't sit down. Dr wall checked my incision and said the stitches had dissolved and everything looked good. He also said i was ok to drive but to take it easy and try to keep pressure off of the implants. I did start driving with a donut pillow which I must say is a must but I was still very uncomfortable and swollen. Well about a week after that I woke up to my pants being wet, honestly I thought maybe I had an accident because I was still numb and couldn't feel my rear. I was so worried about the pain from the implants their selves I never thought about my incision. Well after that I noticed a small amount of drainage coming from the site so I called Dr walls office and made an appointment for the following Monday since it happened on a Friday. Well the next day my incision started bleeding. I could see directly inside my body. The incision had busted open. I called the emergency line and told Dr Wall immediately. I don't think he really understood how serious it was until he seen me. He cleaned out the incision and applied thick stitches. I had no drains when the surgery was originally done, so I think that is what caused the wound to open. After that point I started seeing him on a weekly basis. I still had drainage even with the stitches. After two weeks of the heavy stitches he took them out and there was still an inch size opening. We tried letting it heal for a week or so more by itself before dr wall added more stitches. We left those in until they pretty much fell out. I still had drainage. Around the middle of July the drainage stopped. Two weeks after that he told me I was healed. I was relieved after the horror I had just been through. Well today August 4th the inch size incision started bleeding again. I called my surgeon and he will be seeing me tomorrow. I am going to talk to him about having them removed. Even after I was told I was healed I still was thinking of having the implants removed. I am still uncomfortable and I have pains
where they attach at the top. When you touch the implant directly it's still sore. They look great when I have my clothes on but in some positions when I am nude they are very noticeable and un natural looking and very hard. Does anyone know about the recovery time for having them removed? Any feed back would be great.

Dr. Wall treated me very well. I believe he is a great surgeon just doesn't have a lot of experience in this procedure.
