I went to Grimsby hospital breast clinic on the 23rd January just for a check up; how little did I know it would change my life!! At am I was told after my mammogram I had calcification on my left breast and this was cancer! After seeing the consultant for the second time I was informed I would have to go back next Wednesday for the results and options but when asked about what he recommended it was a full mastectomy. The most scary part is although the nurses were there to offer comfort at no time did anyone tell me where I could go to get help? Am i wrong here?
Heavily calcified host capsules around the prostheses ie, not the prostheses themselves but the host's reaction to those prostheses within a fibrous capsule. Note that there are radial folds or creases in both prostheses with calcification indicating that are not signs of silicone envelope or shell rupture. There is, however, disruption of the capsule medially on the right with bulging of the silicone envelope beyond the confines of the calcification. This does not mean that the implants are ruptured just that there has been a breach in the surrounding capsule.
