Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) implants: Have you been affected?

Recommended Posts

In 2010, it emerged that implants manufactured by the French company Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) had been made with cheap silicone that had not been approved for cosmetic surgery, and had a high splitting rate.
The French authorities closed PIP and the company's founder was convicted of aggravated fraud and imprisoned. 
Patient groups say there has been little support, recognition or information for those affected in the UK, and that thousands of women continue to experience health problems.[1]
Have you had a PIP implant? What has your experience been? What could be done now to make sure those affected are supported?
