Anyone else had their implants get infected and have them removed? I was 2 months out when my cancer side which had radiation became infected. I had it removed last week. My expander also became infected and it was surgical cleaned out, but it healed and I was able to get implant 6 months later. Now I have one fake Boob bc I got a double mastectomy and a hole in my chest. I feel very disformed now. I have the option to try again with skin from another part of my body but after 4 surgeries on this breast I'm done. But I don't like having one Boob either. I'm 36 and I'm very unhappy with the outcome.
