    Hi Sarah
    I had Mr Chantersac too in 2001 and McGhan 340 Textured and had problems nearly straight away. I am now explainting next month after 18 years. My aftercare from him was so awful at the time I’ve been too scared to have another op. I too have limited diet and oversensitive to everything, I can’t wait to feel better.
    I’m worried about alcl now as I’ve had lots of swellings over the years.
