Good Morning, I had reconstruction surgery 3 years ago after a double mastectomy with Silicone implants. Last year I started feeling some discomfort behind the left implant they seen nothing on the MRI but here I am 10 months later and it still bothers me, Anybody else have issues? Thank You

worried for you. If this pain is persistence what does your Plastic Surgeon think
may be causing the pain? MRI showed nothing, but pain is still there. Please
go back to PS and have him/her explain what could be the underlining issue or issues.

Please let us know what the outcome.

Strength, Courage and HOPE for a Cure.

I have an appointment for my 6 month check up Oct.12th with my oncologist. Thought I would see what she had to say, Not crazy about the plastic surgeon I used, not sure if another PS would even want to see me since they didn't put them in, you know how that goes. Thanks for replying and your concern

If your health insurance allows ... Please find a 'NEW' Plastic Surgeon, and get his/her
take on what's causing your discomfort.

Please go into your old PS office and request copies of your medical records -- take
your records with you to your visit with new PS (Plastic Surgeon).

Good luck.

I also have pain from time to time behind my implants. Also can't see anything. I had to have surgery because my cleavage failed and PS went in and looked. Still couldn't see anything. Except that there is a little scar tissue. So he broke that up. That was almost a year ago. Just today I have started with the pain AGAIN! Crazy! I will wait a couple of weeks and call my onc, that is the routine. Good Luck! Marianne
