I had to have 3 silicone granulomas removed from chest area 2014 , I have been left with silicone still in my lymph nodes of my left arm pit and deep in my chest wall ( which cant be removed as too dangerous) , I have it In my vulva again ( it was removed before in 2015 with my clitoris ) but I have silicone again in my vulva and Uterus, But my skin is so bad that they are frightened to operate as i may not heal up well , I am now struggling swollowing and may have a problem with my heart right valve enlarged ( Need further tests) as there is limited windows for them to see as I am so badly scared from all the operations I have had over the years on my chest approx 25 ops , I am on 26 tablets a day now and methotrexate injection form once a week, Mine is an ongoing problem as silicone has Bio integrated into my whole body , had a large lump removed from below my left elbow Dec 2016 ( they said it was a inflammatory response to something but would not say what or knew!!!…
