Itching implant? Help!

Post by Pinkprincessbelle on 7th April 2012, 6:17 pm

HI Girls.
I am new to the site, but really need some advice. I first had implants in 1999, after having my daughter in 2005 I had them removed in 2006. I wanted to not have to worry of ops in the future etc. After six months I decided I wanted to have more so in 2006 I had overs put in with transform.
Everything has been fine, until a few months ago I had an occasional itch on the right boob, on the inside part where the cleavage starts at the bottom. That boob is slightly numb ever since the surgery, so it's weird as it itches but I can't scratch it! I used to get some relief by kinda pressing on the implant and moving it slightly. Lately it has got worse, and it's really annoying, as I just can't scratch it. Feels like it's coming from the inside. I am now concerned that it's a rupture?? What do you think? Any advice would be much appreciated. I am going to see my surgeon next months. Ages away, but they said they need to get my file from head office. I am also having palpitations. I think this could be stress but worried it may be from silicone moving in my body?? Considering removal again, as I feel. Can't cope with the stress and cost of implants.
Xxxxx

Welcome to BJSF

I've never heard of 'itching' being related to any BA complications babe aside from early post-op when the nerves are mending.

I had a badly ruptured implant sweetness, it distorted and enlarged my breast and was very painful, so I don't think you have a rupture at all.

You say you think the palpitations might be coming from your stress over your concerns and I'd sway towards that too from what you've written hun.

Have you seen your GP about the itching sensation? Whilst waiting to see the surgeon it might be an idea to see what your GP thinks also hun.

Hope all goes well and please let us know how you get on. xx

Thanks, I will call GP asap and see if they can help. It so odd, as I all I can find about itching is just after the op.
I wondered if it might be where the nerves are damaged, the implant has moved down very slightly over the six years, so the movement may have caused the sensation. It's really frustrating as I can't relieve the itchy tingly feeling.

I very much doubt six years post-op it would have anything to with the nerves sweetness as the numbness would have been caused by nerves 'not' knitting back together, but they would have still healed over time, just not knitted together causing the loss of sensation if you get what I mean....

Your breasts will have naturally over time dropped anyway lovely, that's just the law of gravity and the down side of having a good sized bust! Damn that gravity!

Itchy patches are symptomatic of quite a few health conditions sweetness, so I think it's good you're seeing your GP lovely. xxx

Hi Pinkprincess,

I'm suffering from exactly the same symptoms 18 months post op! I've just posted about it! Did you go to the surgeon or GP about it? What did they say?

I'm worried too, so would really like to know!

I have the same 2 years post op

Lots of crazy itches that I cant scratch I just put down to either normal itchiness or perhaps scar tissue still healing or growing or whatever inside. Cant say it worries me, just annoying at times when cant scratch it LOL

Hi, I am 18 months po and have the itchy problem to! I do exaclty what you do to try to itch it by moving the implant about as it feels as though I can't get to it to any other way.

MIne started virtually at the very beginning of my healing and always thought it was nerves etc but now I am so far along po I put it down to scar tissue/damaged nereves. Very strange, would love to know what causes it for sure x

The only thing I can think of is the scar tissue irritating you. Maybe massage would help?
