My 550 CC Implants are Outta Here!

My 550 CC Implants are Outta Here!

My 550 CC Implants are Outta Here!

YES- my shirt reads, “RESTORED BACK TO THE 1972 MAKE and MODEL” 😂
.
.
And YES- these are MY ACTUAL IMPLANTS- the 550cc silicone ones I carried inside of me since 2011.
.
.
My 2 week post op was today and I’m healing well. I have a small infection that should resolve in the next few days. Many of you have asked how I’m healing...
.
.
1) My eye “floaters” are completely gone. 
.
.
2) My painful arm pit lymph nodes cysts have completely dried up and disappeared. I had these for the past six months and doctors said the only way to treat them would be to have them drained. 14 days post op and they are GONE! 
.
.
3) My dry and red eyes look so much younger and white. 
.
.
My sleep is worse as my hormones are all over the place as my body is naturally detoxing the 40+ toxins found in every silicone shell. I go from sweating profusely to freezing. Totally normal after explant. I got sick slowly and the full healing can take up to a year. I’m doing weekly massage and cupping therapy to help the detox process. 
.
.
If you have odd or annoying GI, nerve, skin or endocrine type-symptoms that are similar to autoimmune, or have developed an autoimmune disease, then know they are probably early symptoms of breast implant illness. I was in denial for quite some time and after learning what I now know that the implant, FDA and doctors don’t want us to know, I’m SOOO HAPPY these toxic tata’s are now a conversation piece in my living room and not jacking up my body any longer. 🦋

The Heal is Real ladies!

What to know when choosing a Breast Implant...Explant Surgeon: Episode 2

How I almost hired Dr Dick and what you need to know about choosing your Explant Surgeon...

You're OUTTA Here!

You're OUTTA Here!

 


It’s been a week since I last shared about my upcoming EXPLANT and I have a significant lesson to share with you… (and in case you missed it)

 Although the BII Healing Website suggests not to go with your original surgeon, I once had a great experience with mine  so wanted to give him an opportunity to explant.

 THANK GOODNESS the website also warned me that MOST plastic surgeons will likely give you a really crappy reaction if you bring up Breast Implant Illness, performing en blocs, and that you should be totally prepared to walk away during the consult if your surgeon gives you ANY push back.

But I thought, “Eh...not MY surgeon, he’s such a nice guy!  And he’s done my last TWO implant surgeries!”

My once lovely and kind PS was a total CONDESCENDING PRICK like I’ve never seen before. 😭.

I’m a very educated and professional woman, a strong advocate for holistic health and he made me feel like a dumb bimbo hypochondriac and literally said, “sounds like you’ve been on those crazy websites that scare people into thinking their implants are the cause of their illness.” He went on questioning me with a condescending tone re the “real source” of my many symptoms.

 “I feel like you are making me feel crazy, for wanting my implants out.” I said.

“Crazy?  I didn’t SAY you were crazy.  But do you feel you are?”

 

Wait...WHAT….THE…. F*CK???????

 

It was at this point last Monday I began SHAKING.  This was EXACTLY what the site fore-warned me about.  I just couldn't believe MY doctor would turn from Mr Sweet to Dr DICK.

I pulled myself together enough, knowing I HAD TO WALK AWAY from both him and my surgery date.  “You may be PHYSICALLY capable of doing my surgery but we are not MENTALLY aligned - so to not waste any more of our time, I’m going elsewhere”.

It felt DAUNTING to know that I had to go back to square one, find a new surgeon, book a new consultation and a schedule new surgery date.

FIRST THING you NEED to know:  

It is IMPERATIVE that the doctor COMMITS to getting the entire capsule out.  If any is left inside, YOU WILL NOT GET BETTER. Know that when they tell you, “My patients that have had their implants removed have not gotten any better.” that it is because they didn’t take the entire capsule out with the implant.  So no shit sherlock, they didnt get better. A PS should have NO ISSUES with you wanting both your actual implants and all of your capsule returned to you so that you can send it to pathology for testing.

 SECOND THING:  

The majority of plastic surgeons will not acknowledge BII exists.  

Why do you think?  

Yes...Liability.  And then Money.

Although know that there are thousands of doctors, pathologists and plastic surgeons that DO. There are thousands of reported cases despite there still being no actual BII screening.

There is an approved list of physicians that are committed to getting the entire capsule out of you.  

Oh and as for the FDA...it wouldn’t be the first time they’ve approved something safe that isn’t.  Especially when tied to a pharmaceutical drug or medical “device” company.

 

I’m happy to share that I followed the approved list and found one of THEEE BEST plastic surgeons in Tampa Bay.  He is not only one of the most TALENTED and accredited surgeons but he has committed to get as much of my capsule out, even though much of it may be attached to my rib cage.  Ugh to think I may have 23 year old capsules left in me my from my other TWO sets of implants. GROSS.   He will also give me my implants back to me and send the all the capsule to pathology.  

Everything happens for a reason.  I couldnt be sure that Dr DICK was committed to get my entire capsule out, leaving me open to having to pay for another surgery by someone who was.  

 

My NEW surgery date is May 22.  I’ll be in surgery about 5 hours and it’s not cheap at $12,000, and of course NOT covered on insurance (grrr...that’s another post for another day)  But…. as my mom put in perspective to me: I will not have to waste another dime on breast implants surgeries for the rest of my life, I hopefully will not blow more money on diagnostic testing and IF i do in fact feel better, I will have my HEALTH and  LIFE back!      #WorthIt

I have included pictures of what implants LOOK LIKE when they are removed with the capsule, a news video from a Canadian Chemist investigation down below....

Until Episode 3...HUGS and HEALTH,

This is the first time it's been explained (and shown) HOW and WHY the implant causes so many health issues from a Canadian Chemist on the Canadian FDA board:

Explanted breast Implants covered in the capsule the body naturally builds around it to protect and defend us against the "foreign invader".  It can be peeled off the implant, like a sausage casing, once explanted.

WHY if your implant is under the muscle (like mine), it becomes problematic in getting all the capsule out.
