I am in a similar position. I had pip implants replaced in may 2018 which had leaked into my lymph nodes, and since Nov 2018 have had arm and shoulder pain. Now one of my lymph nodes is tender and painful. My GP has recommended physio but I am going to go back to my surgeon. Very concerned.
Hi Joanne, just wanted to welcome you and say hello
Am not aware of any british furore just now...tho that dorsnt mean its not happening.
so sorry about your implant!
i did have one 16 yrars ago and kept getting infections...not sure if it was your kind of implant tho. Anyway ended up with lymphoedema...but prob from the infections.
its really disappointing isnt it when things fail after you built up your hopesxx
