Implant removal & tattoos - would like your input :-)

Hi All,

I am glad to be 8 years post mastectomy this week :-) My reconstruction 'looks' great but has been causing me long term discomfort and sleepless nights.  Not pain as such, nothing sinister, just it's not a real boob is it, and it can be sore after a busy day at work or with my playful toddler!  Anyhow, I've been considering having it removed (privately when restrictions allow) and I'm wondering if anyone else has ever done this? Also I'd love to hear/see about your tattoo experiences.

Thanks, and sending good wishes to everyone.

  • Hi and a very warm welcome to the online community

    I can't help with the experiences you're after but I noticed that you hadn't had any replies yet. By replying to you it will 'bump' your post back to the top of the discussions list where it'll be more easily spotted.

    I hope you don't mind me suggesting that you also join and post this in the main breast cancer group as it's a lot busier than this one. If you'd like to that just click on the link I've created and then join and post in the same way as you did here.

    When you have a minute it would be great if you could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it really helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
