During breast augmentation the surgeon tore an entire bundle of nerves. I was in terrible pain for 6 years. It subsided, but never fully went away.
In the 16 years of undiagnosed rupture I had multiple issues which caused acute pain, including acute inflammation and infection (to name only a couple). Since explant, due to residual silicone that couldn’t be removed, enlarged silicone-filled lymph nodes, dilated ducts, and other destructive changes within my chest wall, the pain has not gone away. I am in constant acute pain that is unrelenting and exhausting.
Pain is very common for women with breast implants, and unfortunately for many pain issues are not fully resolved with explant.
