OnTarget, all implants can slosh (and squeak, gurgle and fart) for the first couple of weeks. It’s just fluid being pushed around between the implant and your chest.

Thanks VegGal! I should have googled it before posting, and I tried to delete the question but not fast enough!

I am super glad that sloshing is normal for new implants!

I'm glad you posted! I had never heard this and just had my exchange last Wednesday. I was quite surprised at the sounds I was hearing when I would stand up or move my arm a certain way!!!! I would think the PS would mention this. :) I haven't heard it in 2 days, so maybe I'm past that now.

Thanks Hodgepodge- mine is making all sorts of sloshing and farting noises, so VegGal was right on with this! My exchange was two weeks ago, and the noises are going strong!
