RE: Just heard back from Dr. Chun's office!
Update: I just faxed Dr. Chun's office my medicare card, so at least that is done.

Also, I was hospitalized for chest pain--two different times. This last time, they took an ultra sound and an MRI. They had found a mass on my ultra sound, but couldn't find the mass on my MRI. However, they were not looking for a rupture.

My question is this? Do you think Dr. Chun's friend who is skilled at finding silicone ruptures on an MRI, could do so by my recent MRI? I'm not even sure if they stay on file, but if so, could he use that--or do you think they'd have to re-do the tests?

And I have my old mamagram films, he may be able to look at that fuzzy part with breaks in it to determine if it's ruptured.

Thanks,

Lisa

I used the Newport surgey center and I didn't like it. I have to agree with CelticOm Dr. Chun did a great job cosmetically.

RE: Just heard back from Dr. Chun's office!
Well, I just heard back from Dr. Chun's office again--by e-mail. I let them know I do not have proof of a rupture, but let them know that I have an old mammogram & recently was hospitalized for chest pain and gp ordered an ultra sound--and they found a mass, but then having an MRI--they said they didn't find a mass, but they did not look for silicone rupture--so maybe Dr. Chun can get someone to read the ultra sound--and/or MRI? So now I'll wait back to hear from them again. But they didn't say anything negative about my medical insurance! So that is good!! God bless you and thanks for your responses!

Just heard back from Dr. Chun's office again. They told me that I can have a consultation and that they will bill medicare. So that is good!

I think this is the video of 30 yr.old breast implants that--one is ruptured and they are being removed. Older silicone. When he sliced it opened is when I knew that is what I was coughing up out of me. They say the newer silicone is better and adheres to itself so it is safe--I don't believe them!

RE: Just heard back from Dr. Chun's office!
Well, I just found out that the lady who works for Dr. Chun told me that I have to schedule an appointment with Dr. Chun to see if it is medical or cosmetic--in relation to my medical insurance. Apparently, Dr. Chun has to see me. But I already just saw a plastic surgeon who told me that he could not admit me in the hospital due to my implants appearing in-tact. But he told me that he believed me that they were ruptured, but difficult to prove.

Also, my mom has been non supportive--getting upset that I wanted to make an appt. with dr. chun, because she needs my help right now.

Hi Lisa Marie

I've just read your thread. I do hope you can have your implants out asap, sounds like you are really going through it, particularly if you've been throwing up silicone. Bernie seems to throw up nearly every day but because she is a smoker, she blames it on that. Makes me wonder.... I cannot believe how much distress women are going through with these toxic implants.... so angry that governments won't listen.....

Anyway, sounds like you need to take care of yourself before dealing with your Mother's issues! Wish you lots of luck and strength xxx

Ladies... I am debating between Dr Feng and Dr Chun... ANY advice would be amazing. I simply want the best. Ideally I want to explant through my periaereola incision - not the fold.... please advise - thank you!!!

Rainbow RE: Just heard back from Dr. Chun's office!
Just an update: I have finally been explanted... after 30 yrs! One of the implants were badly ruptured! Dr. Alex K. Wong at USC Keck School of Medicine... performed the surgery and he did a very nice job! I'm very happy with the results! I'm still wearing a b bra, but I'm lighter and feel so much better! I had the implants removed en-block, so I was happy about that too! I did have drains for over a week! The surgery date was July 27, 2015!!! God answers prayers! Thank you, Jesus! God is faithful! I still have a ways to go in the recovery process, but I feel so much better explanted than implanted! Praise God! Angel
