Size of Bacteria vs. Size of Pores in Breast Implants

Dear Doctors of Pathology:

A poster on alt.support.breast-implant has posted that it is not possible
for a bacterium to get through the envelope of a silicone gel implant
because bacteria are far too large.

His comparison was trying to put a watermelon thru a collander.

I would like your professional opinions.

Remember, it is known that gel bleeds out, and that implant shells degrade
over time.

Respectfully,
Ilena Rose

Pathology Assistant

I remember reading that some colleges have programs for people to train to
be pathology assistants.  These people basically perform the autopsy, and
the pathologist interprets the test result.

Has anyone heard of this? know which colleges off the programs?

Thanks in advance.

Reticulocyte count & G6PD

My son has g6pd deficiency and I’m trying to make sense of it all.

What is the normal retic. count of an infant who is G6PD dedicient? Is
the normal retic. count of a g6pd def. individual three times as high as
normal?   How high can it go before something should be done, i.e
transfusion?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please post and email your response.
