I am sorry that you havent recieved any replies to your post yet. It may be because people are unaware of what an ADM implant is. Perhaps if you put a little more information about the type of surgery you have had that will help people have a better understanding and therefore be more able to offer support?

Hi, I had an immediate breast implant during mastectomy at the end of January, pleased with it so far, still feels solid and tight, which I'm told is normal, but I'm also experiencing pain twinges, almost like toothache pain, comes in sways, my nurse said again this can happen and it can take time to settle in, I still get very paranoid though with pain, always thinking the worse, I guess having cancer can do this. Has anyone else had an implant and experienced any of the symptoms.xx
