Event Description
My doctor placed a "biozorb marker" in my left breast after breast cancer surgery, without my knowledge or approval.It was supposed to help with radiation but my rad doc said it was not necessary at all.It is a constant source of pain and anxiety.It sends pain through my back and all the way through my breast if i hit it or bump it.It was supposed to dissolve over 12 months but i am a year and 3 months out and it has not changed.I want it out but my doctor tells me it will cause more problems if i have it removed.I absolutely hate this thing and wished i had been asked before placing this garbage in my body.Shame on the makers of this product for giving cancer patients one more problem to deal with; focal rx inc.Fda safety report id# (b)(4).
