Common Questions and Answers about Breast implants horror stories


Avatar f tn t u just hate when ppl who are suppose to be ur friend fill ur mind with doubt and worry?? All week I have heard horror stories from the girls from work (who are nurses) girls we gotta remember that no pregnancy is the same and personally I feel listening to girls drag us down makes us feel waaay worse. I ended up booking a private scan cos I was so torn up by what ppl were telling me about my nausea symptoms stopping. If ur not sick ur whole pregnancy something is wrong?!?!? I was terrified.
Avatar f tn The plastic surgeon that I saw said I have a double D and at age fifty five, I would not be satisfied with implants. My breast that I have left will need reduction and lift. I weigh one sixty five and I am five four. I am in good health otherwise and exercise and remain active. I do not smoke.
Avatar f tn The whole class of meds similar to Fosamax can have lasting painful side effects. There are many horror stories about Prolia. I am someone who got permanent severe skin inflammation and bone pain from just one Prolia injection 3 years ago. I now don't trust any bone medication. My mother had severe osteoporosis who was careful and died at age 88 with never breaking any bones. And both of us took Fosamax for 5 years. A lot of good it did our bones!.
Avatar m tn I'd go further than specialmom. I had the worst withdrawal in the history of them, but I don't think the non-horror stories match the horror stories -- I think they far exceed the horror stories. The problem is, medication for anything does force the body to work artificially, so generally it's only supposed to be prescribed if necessary. That's the First Do No Harm part of a doctor's oath.
Avatar n tn You want to go to a dentist that has had a lot of experience with doing it correctly. I have heard many horror stories from people with the problems they are having with implants. I have one and it was put in beautifully. And it was a difficult insertion with very little room to work with. Next to front tooth. I had special x rays taken before and the dentist made sure that there was enough space, bone, distance from sinuses, etc. before he considered me for an implant.

7928796 tn?1396351929 Its really different for everyone... I know one woman who breast fed three babies a year a piece with implants and I know another that breast fed her first, got implants and couldn't breast feed her second or third...
Avatar m tn My doctor, who I trust and who did my last surgery, recommends a hysterectomy for me with my problems and Mothers history. I have heard horror stories about it and the homorne therapy decision. Is it best for me to get it all out or roll the dice? My sister who is 1 year older than me just had a hysterectomy with no hormone therapy. Is it better to do it that way? I am scheduled for surgery this Wednesday and I feel very confused. I am afraid of what may be on my ovary.
Avatar f tn I've never been pregnant but I got the Mirena last year in August. It's been great! I only get some spotting for a few days as a "period" instead of having the massive heavy bleeding that I used to get. I do get some painful cramps the day of my period and some twinges occasionally after it's over, but other than that, I don't even know it's there. I had the same concerns as you about the horror stories but I haven't experienced anything bad.
Avatar f tn This is my third pregnancy. I breastfed my first 2 children. I got breast implants after my second. I'm curious if anyone has or knows of someone that has successfully breastfed after getting implants.

Avatar n tn ------------------------------------------------------- Vacuum-assisted biopsy (brand names, Mammotome or MIBB) allows physicians to perform accurate breast biopsies on women with breast implants. Prior to the advent of vacuum-assisted biopsy, women with implants typically had to undergo open surgical biopsy if breast cancer was suspected. Unlike surgical biopsy, vacuum-assisted biopsy is a percutaneous ("through the skin") procedure.
5644233 tn?1371557686 I am looking to get breast implants. I am a small A and want to be a B or so. Does anyone know which implant is better to get? How much does it usually cost? How long is the recovery? Any of these questions will help me make a closer choice :)!
2146297 tn?1337571292 Hello everyone, I have a question about getting breast implants. I'm turning 30 in August and I was really looking forward to getting a boob job. I have been planning this for like 3 years and when I was diagnosed in May last yr, I assumed the boob job was out of the question. From what I understand, only infection and fever cause a relapse.??? This is what I'm wondering about. What about the anithesia? Could that hurt me because of the MS? How likely is it for an infection to occur?
Avatar f tn Actually, if your nipple still has feeling, the chance are high. Breast augmentation (breast implants) isn't a reason alone not to be able to produce breast milk. Most likely, it depends on the kind of surgery you had, but most approaches are compatible with breastfeeding. Incisions made under the fold of the breast or through the armpit shouldn't cause any trouble. A "Smile" incision around the areola increase your risks of breastfeeding complications.
Avatar n tn I was having a discussion on my Facebook about birth and all that and asked that anyone who commented refrained from telling horror stories.. I wanted to know about people's POSITIVE csection experience because I have a scheduled csection in June.. I know it's not all rainbows and sunshine but I don't want to psych myself out..
453893 tn?1205859801 I had breast implants on August 8th 2007. Seven months later, last week, I had a mammogram which revealed an 8mm nodular density on the upper right breast. This morning an ultrasound confirmed the presence of this white mass, so a biopsy has been scheduled for tomorrow. There is no lump in the breast, only this shadow. This breast is more sensitive and hurts consistently. The scar under the right breast hasn't healed at the same speed of the left breast scar.
Avatar f tn This includes for saline or silicone breast implants. What type do you have? If they are saline, leaking implants are not a risk. And currently, saline implants are what is typically used. Is one breast or both changing in size? That's another way to know if there is an issue with the implant. Do you feel any lumps? Do you do regular breast exams? There is one type of breast plant that has recently been linked to cancer which involves implants that have a textured surface.

Avatar f tn Does anyone have breast implants?
Avatar f tn I prefer breast implants to be placed under the muscle. I have very little breast tissue and have heard that people with no breast tissue or little breast tissue will get better results if the implants are placed under the muscle. And I will most probably be getting implants within couple of months. I have already talked to a surgeon Dr. Robert Backstein of Steeles Avenue Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Toronto, but haven't confirmed of getting the surgery.
Avatar f tn One of my old friends had breast implants, now she is on her 4th.
Avatar n tn The risks are very low and they feel more like real breast. I to will be getting implants after the expanders have done thier work. But I am getting gummy implants. They are fairly new to the US but have been used in Canada and abroad for years. They feel fabulous and the contents are like gummy bear material. But again if I had to choose between silicone or saline I would choose silicone every time. My PS says they are safe.
Avatar f tn You should not have gone for breast implants. See, not everyone are good candidates for breast implants. The surgeon will conduct some physical examinations and then only he allows you to get breast implants. I think you were not a good candidate. It might be the problem while conducting the above mentioned physical examinations that made you a good candidate. A dear friend of mine has had breast augmentation few years back.
