Event Description
I was implanted with silicone gel textured implants. I began experiencing neurological problems one month following mammogram. My implants were voluntarily removed from the us market in (b)(6) 2015 for "quality concerns at the manufacturing plant in (b)(4)". I was explanted on (b)(6) 2017, i had abnormal cells growing within the scar capsule around one implant and a seroma. My surgeon said my entire chest cavity was terribly inflamed. I had a second surgery in (b)(6) to remove affected axillary lymph nodes and began a detox protocol for mold and chemical toxicity by my surgeon. Beyond the fact that this has affected my quality of life, i have been left with a huge financial burden. And then to have a mainstream medicine refuse to believe my implants were the source of my problems is hard. I have never notified by sientra that there were problems with my implants.
