Women can falsely assume that if their doctors don’t tell them there’s a problem with their breast implants that everything must be ok.
A regional surgeon told me that despite my experience with undiagnosed rupture for 16 years he would not proactively screen women with breast implants for possible complications or rupture, even if they presented with symptoms consistent with it, due to possible liability issues, stating that they should not expect care here. He stated he knows nothing about breast implants and has no intention of learning anything about them.
Women with breast implants MUST BE PROACTIVE! Request an ultrasound or MRI. If you’re refused remind the doctor that the FDA and manufacturer guidelines suggest MRI’s 3-years after augmentation and every 2-years subsequently.
It is possible to have THIS within your chest wall, but still be told there is nothing medically wrong with you!
