Back to surgeon...again...

Post by Charlii on 23rd November 2015, 7:56 pm

I've managed to book in with my surgeon this saturday. Over the weekend, i was just in agony with my lefty. Its been playing up a lot more recently, but saturday morning i bent over to get something from my bag and OMG. It felt like it had fallen off on the inside. The 'crunchiness' is still there, even more pronounced than usual, even when i lie down in my sports bra now. Any movement is sore and weird. I've been in sports bras 24/7 for a couple weeks now and nothing is helping. So I'm heading back to discuss it further with my surgeon. And I just know he's going to dismiss it, because theres nothing visibly wrong. 

I dont really know what to do to be honest. My aftercare runs out next june. If they even do take me seriously, i cant have a reop right now because im still on probation at my new job. I'm just so fed up with being in pain constantly. And a bra! I'd love to get home ans just take it off, but it hurts too much. 

I'll let you all know how it goes. Hopefully i'll have some answers or a plan.

Ahh mate, that's terrible. Jst have to try and be firm with him, at the end of the day, you know your own body, and lets be honest, you 'know' t1ts!   Hysterical
So hopefuly you can get some answers an move forward.

Good Luck, and yep let us know how you go.

Good luck. You've been back before so he'll know this isn't just a niggle so I would hope he takes you seriously. I can imagine your predicament though. For work, can you not use annual leave? x

Are you able to book an mri scan just to put your mind at rest? It is possible to be seen at your local out patient clinic through the nhs on Dr referral especially if you are in pain. If then they find a rupture or something you could go back to your ps? How long have you had your implants charlie

Im 2.5yrs post. Had an ultrasound last year after going back about this, theres no rupture. Have spoken at length with Cookie, we're both pretty convinced that the implant has not adhered properly, so the 'crunching' is the capsule rubbing across the implant. I think i could even pinpoint when it happened, a month or so into my recovery i rolled in my sleep, put my weight on my left elbow and felt a snap almost. Called the nurse at the time, and we just put it down to a strain. It felt ok for a while after that, i guess because there was so much other healing going on. But its been getting worse and worse, and i cant keep ignoring it now. Im also considering a second opinion from a baaps surgeon, depending how this goes. If this has taught me anything, its that you really need to do your research, and get 2nd and 3rd opinions. I didnt always know boobs! And now my naivity is biting me in the a5s.

Sounds quite unusual. Are you sure it's not a case of mild CC? It's such frustrating timing too - I hope the surgeon takes it seriously; if not I'd definitely get some second and third opinions. If you can arrange an MRI in the meantime that might be useful to take along for further opinions. USS can't penetrate that deep and show the back of the implant where the problem may be.

I don't know much about boobs yet but all I would say is definitely be firm with him - just because he can't see it doesn't mean it isn't real and he might try and fob you off until your aftercare runs out. Demand answers - if you need to have a re-op then that's what you have to do. Don't worry about work at this stage - you won't be the first person to have started a new job that needs to take leave in the first few months! Good luck - keep us posted! Xx

Trust me to get the weird complication! I'm pretty sure its not CC because it's just as soft and squishy as the other one, its not moved at all. To look at and feel, they're fine. Its just how they feel on the inside. I'll speak to hubs re getting an mri, if they do a Saturday or late clinic.

Oh Charlii bless ya. Really hope your surgeon takes you seriously and investigates your pain properly this time. If not it's time to get a second opinion from a Baaps surgeon, but your not daft, you know that. Good luck, and let us know how you get on.

Am totally bricking it today. Kept waking up having weird boob dreams, then all the what ifs go round your head. I've written all my pain points down, but I'm still kinda scared. Appts at midday, wish me luck
