For those that were suffering from auto immune symptoms and fatigue, how soon did you feel better after explant?
- 5 months ago
I was an A cup...had 2 kids they looked pretty bad. Decided to try implants as my sister has them and a few friends. I had 330cc saline implants put in under muscle 2 1/2 years ago. 2 months after I got them I became very ill. Fatigue. Abdominal pain. Back pain. My hormones quit working. My body was shutting down. I thought I was dying. They thought I needed a hysterectomy. Got one (after a laparoscopic surgery). They thought endometriosis was the root of my troubles. It wasn't. I had 40 + vials of blood drawn. Stool studies. Saliva studies. Scans. The list goes on...more and more money spent on top of it. I am finally scheduled to have them removed in 2 weeks. I know that if I feel healthy again I won't miss them at all. Some aspects I will miss...they are beautiful, but my natural boobs are beautiful too and I certainly don't need them for my self esteem. I know it will feel good not to have these heavy bags on my chest. Hellooooo push-ups again! It will just be a transition. My husband never wanted me to get them and is excited to have them out. Thank goodness for that. His support helps me feel better about it. I wish I had saved myself the agony and had them removed sooner...the docs just kept thinking maybe it was something else. I am certain it is the implants! Wish me luck!
