Hi Ladies, I've been considering getting...

I've been considering getting breast implants for quite a while now. I'm 5"8, weigh 130 pounds. I wear a B32 but am probably a AA cup. I've gone back and forth over getting breast implants for years because of the health risks I hear about. I finally found a decent plastic surgeon, but have changed my mind about getting them yet again..
I've stumbled upon videos on youtube by a plastic surgeon named Susan E. Kolb who specializes in removing breast implants and helping women get better after they get very sick from them, sick to the point where they cannot walk.
These women get sick from the chemicals in the silicone shell of the breast implant, or chemicals in the silicone inside the breast implant. Women can also get sick from saline implants if they become moldy inside and start to leak in the body. I guess some women's bodies have what seems to be an allergic reaction to the implant, and they start developing auto-immune diseases which can affect the joints and also cause extreme tiredness, weakness, and pain.
I'd really like to know how common this is, because so many women have breast implants and they can't all become sick eventually, right? Or do most women who have breast implants eventually face serious health issues from them at some point in their lives?
My question to you ladies who have breast implants is, have you experienced any changes in your health since you had the surgery?
For example, do you feel that you get tired more frequently than before? Do you ever start to feel unusually weak? Do you feel pain or discomfort in any of your joints that you never felt before?
If you have breast implants and never felt any of these sympoms, then thats great! I hope you never do, and please state so in your answer.
If you have experienced these sympoms then please say so and say how long you have had the breast implants in, and if they are saline or silicone.
