Implants Flipped

Implants Flipped

I have some how flipped my implant again, does anyone know a way to prevent this? I know very odd but I am tired of being the odd one. I am the 1 in 8 with breast cancer the 10% with a mutation which is a odd one so 2% of those 10 and now the 5% who flips implants. So tired of being special, just want to be normal and boring.

@A MyBCTeam Member: I don't have an implant but I do know they can manually flip it back, but if it's an issue that keeps happening and it bothers you, they can do a surgery to tighten the breast pocket a little more to ensure it stays put. 💕

I asked how to keep from happening at today's appointment with pa.she told me to wear sports bra when I sleep and sometimes it just quits happening but if keeps happening will have to do another surgery. She had me make appt with surgeon to discuss how they fix but first appt after new year so hoping bra will do it.

I feel you on wanting to be normal and boring. My sisters are! I get all the diseases! My son said that I am going for the Guinness book of World records for the most diseases. Fibromyalgia, ankylosing spondylitis, trigeminal neuralgia, chronic insomnia, chronic fatigue, migraines, wide spread arthritis...and now Cancer!! If I went a day without pain I would think I had died and gone to heaven! 😁
