cohesive gel implants April 1, 2014 - 11:43am | alberta I was wondering what your thought were on cohesive gel implants (gummy implants). Have you seen problems with them as well? ‹ Enbloc vs Regular Explant Rash after explant › Cohesive gel implants drkolb1 | April 12, 2014 - 12:11pm In my experience, these implants also leak and with time rupture, so they are no safer than other implants except that explantation surgery is easier due to the cohesive gel. Mentor silicone breast implants Anonymous | April 25, 2014 - 7:24pm I received my Mentor silicone breast implants in December of 2008 after double mastectomy for breast cancer. In October of 2012, I discovered a large lump under my right arm. My cancer had been on the left side. I was sent for needle biopsy and pathology showed silicone. I was explanted in March of 2013. The left implant had a gaping, jagged tear in the left lower portion. The surgeon also removed 3 large lymph nodes filled with silicone. The left implant was broken but yet the silicone was on the right side. I asked my surgeon how this happened and he told me that the silicone could not travel to the right side that I had to have had silicone sometime in the past. What a bunch of garbage. I have never had silicone in my body until the implants. I have crushing fatigue, memory loss, severe muscle pain, fibromyalgia, disequilibrium, have had significant falls in the past two years, and the list just goes on. I have been trying to get help or even find someone to help me to no avail. I believe that no breast implant is safe be it silicone or saline. If there is anyone out there who can tell me anything at all, please do so. I have also tried to find an attorney with no luck. I am at my wits end over this whole thing. Someone out there, please help me. sick from silicone Anonymous | May 7, 2014 - 8:28pm I would recommend that you read the book and come in for a consultation to see what other treatments you could benefit from including detoxification. above drkolb2 | October 9, 2016 - 11:18am Dr. Kolb posting above.
