Think i can feel my implant...

18 July 2007 at 21:37

I posted something earlier today asking if anyone could feel their implant moving when they raised their arms, picked anything up etc. I only seem to be able to feel the right one moving and wondered if this was because the implant hasn't dropped properly yet? I've posted before about having quite bad pains going through my right nipple, whereas I didn't get them in my left - is my right side just a bit slower at settling than my left then?

Just been having a poke and a prod and I think I can feel the bottom of my implant under my left boob near my scar, but I can't feel it on the right hand side. Has anyone else had this? My right boob seems perkier than the left, whereas the left is dropping a bit and starting to look more natural. Am worried incase this isn't normal!!

Its normal
Hi Kelly, i had the same thing when i was around 3-4 weeks post op, whenever i touched my scar i could feel it moving and felt like a bit bubbly feeling if that makes sense, anyway when i went for my check up at week 5 i was told this was normal and all part of the settling process, i must admit somedays i can still feel it but not as much now, and i will be 7 weeks on Thursday, hope this helps put your mind at ease a bit.

Hi
Did you have smooth or textured implants?.the bubbling is the implant settling into the pocket/dropping.

Hi
Thanks everyone, that makes me feel so much better. I'm not sure if I had smooth or textured so I might email my PS about that. Glad to hear it's normal though to feel it. It's funny cos when I raise my right arm I can feel the implant move inside but when I touch it from the outside I can't feel it moving?!?!
On a gross note, I noticed yesterday that my scabs have started to come off! I'm really pleased as I seemed to have a massive scab right over the scar and I was starting to worry about how thick my scar would be. Turns out that under the scabs the scar is teeny tiny!

Implant type
When I had my BA, I was given a sheet with the implant serial nos and make. Never mind being identified by dental records. I've had a retina scan and now serial nos on my boobs!
