My 1st Blog!
Welcome to my very 1st blog post! My name is Jennifer, I live in Rio Rancho, NM and have been a registered nurse for over 6 years. I am happily married to my husband Brad and we have 4 children.
I made the decision to get implants on September 15, 2009, when I was 25 years old. I had 400 cc Mentor saline implants, under the muscle.
My health was never the same afterwards, but I didn't know why. I just thought I was falling apart and I was! Years later I was diagnosed with Raynaud's, Epstein Barr Virus, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, and markers for R.A. Along those diagnoses came ALOT of symptoms. These symptoms included; constant/extreme fatigue (I could literally sleep 12+ hours a day and still be exhausted), very poor memory, poor concentration, brain fog, joint pain, anxiety, vertigo, temperature intolerance, sensitivity to light and sound, LOTS of hair loss, dry, itchy skin, depression, decreased libido, and several digestive issues.
How could this be?! I am only 34!! I feel like I'm 64, at least. It wasn't until until April of 2019 where I came across a group of women on facebook experiencing the same syptoms as me. Maybe I'm not crazy after all.....The further I looked into the culpit of these symtoms, it was apparent that it was my breast implants. I no longer felt like a crazy, sick person. There was a reason for my recent diagnoses.
I the consulted with three plastic suregons here in Albuquerque, NM. Every suregon I met with wanted to keep the capsules in. If you've ever done any research on breast implant illness and removal, you know that it is imperative to remove the capsule, perferably en bloc! The capsule is a protective layer of fibrous scar tissue which surrounds the implant (foreign body) in order to protect the body from this foreign object which is composed of several chemicals including silicon, platnium, lead, tin copper, mercury, barium, arsenic, nickel and lots more! Interstingly enough, when I did a hair anaylsis test, my levels for were high for all of the ingridents found in breast implants! I will find the results and post shortly.
Less skilled suregons prefer to keep the capsules in due to their lack of skill and experience. The breast implants leach their chemicals into the capsules and without removing the capsules, you will NEVER heal!!
