Breast Implant Illness - 5 Week UpdateOct 04, 2022
It's been 5 weeks since I had my breast implants removed.
The pic on the left was taken about 3 weeks before explanting.
For about 4 years I was hiding.
Hiding the personal hell I was going through trying to figure out what was wrong with me.
Hiding the fact that no matter what I did, how hard I tried, or what professional I saw something was VERY wrong with me.
All tests came back as “normal” and grossly “healthy”.
I’ve been healing these last 5 weeks and quite honestly I don’t even recognize myself.
Looking back and connecting all the dots, I can see so clearly.
My health and my life started to fall apart about 5 months after getting my implants.
Connecting all the dots, all roads lead back to the fact that I had something foreign and toxic in my body and it was literally sucking the life from me.
At the time of my explant surgery I had put on 20 pounds despite eating healthy and exercising (when I wasn't bed ridden).
I’m not here to spread fear. There’s plenty of that going around.
I’m here to share my story and perhaps save a life and give a small child their Mommy back…
A mommy that can laugh, get out of bed, and isn’t in constant pain and fear that she may in fact die.
Here’s what was happening to me...
Fatigue and extreme exhaustion
High anxiety and panic attacks
Deep throbbing bone pain (especially in my legs)
Very heavy menstrual cycles
Left Hip Pain
Low back pain
Numbness in limbs
Ringing in ears
Short Term Memory Issues
Getting winded very easily/hard time breathing or going up stairs
Internal tremors and vibrations
Right Eye twitching
Intense fear of things I used to excel at (Driving, being alone, travelling alone)
Unexplained weight gain
Confusion and Brain Fog
Inability to form proper sentences at times
Feeling disconnected and zoned out like I’m hung over or drunk
So while some people out there may say that such things like “it is all in your head”, or "breast implant illness is not real"...
What I know to be true is in my heart, and and that my friend is where the real treasure lies.
Have the courage to listen to your own heart. Whatever you may be going through.
It will always lead you higher and to the right place at the right time.
It’s up to you to listen to the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. (And that truth is different for everyone).
xo, and thanks to all for the love and support. I truly feel blessed to be here, and blessed to be alive.
P.S. If you know of anyone who has similar issues AND implants, maybe forward them this. It could just save their life.
P.P.S If you're someone considering breast implants I'd HIGHLY suggest you do your research and really look into what toxic chemicals you're putting into your body before you go ahead with any surgery. I really wish I had done this or that someone suggested this to me before I had gotten so sick.
