Hi! I had a saline implant put in about 6 weeks ago. It seemed to have healed but yesterday I woke up in pain. I think I may have pulled the muscle or something. I also had a fever last night of 101.6. When I called my plastic surgeon he said I should call my family doctor because it may not be the implant. I intend to do that but I just thought I would ask if it happen to anyone else??

    Minnie, if you are also an oncology patient, please call your oncologist and describe what is going on.

    Normally you'd get a fever and have a reaction much sooner. Is your pain where you had the implant surgery? I had a fever the 3rd day after surgery. I felt better the next day.
