My BA Looks Great but I'm Still Having Them Explanted. :) - Ocala, FL

I'm 15 weeks post-op from my BA and this morning I had my pre-op to have them explanted! LOL I may sound crazy, but I'm happy to be getting these toxic things out of me! Hopefully my previous posts are still up so I don't have to retell my story. Basically my gut feeling was to not get implants and just get a lift and reduction (on one side because my left breast was a cup size bigger than my right). I'm a no medication kind of woman, I only take vitamins, I love to exercise, etc. I was crazy to do this, from day 1 I regretted my decision. Then I was watching Know The Cause (google Doug Kaufmann) and on his show he had Dr. Melmed (lots of woman on here used him for their explants, he's like the king of explants), who spoke about how toxic ALL implants are and he showed some he removed...some calcification, some with mold, etc. A woman on the show talked all about her problems before having hers explanted. Anyway, I was already sure I wanted them out before watching this, but it sealed the deal for me!
SO :) the countdown is on!!!! Yes, I'm scared of the outcome...what will they look like, how will I feel about myself, etc.???? But I'm sure I'm doing the healthy thing!!!

I got them out yesterday!!!!! No more toxic bags inside of me!!! Praising God!!!!

So, my explant went great!! I've been praying for Dr. Nijher everyday since my pre-op to get my implants. Then after I got them and realized my mistake, I started praying for God to soften Dr. Nijhers' heart towards me, so that when I told him I wanted them explanted he would be sweet to me about my decision. And he was! His initial response was "I just want my patients to be happy, I would like you to wait 3-6 months to be sure, but ultimately I'll do what you want and I'll just charge you for anesthesia." Then at my pre-op, his nurse was so sweet (I only had one of his other nurses before that tried to secretly talk me out of getting them out, but she wasn't one of his regular nurses)and he was still sweet and told me he would give me an internal bra so that my breasts would hold the lift he gave me with my implants. :)

I just feel so blessed!!! I had such terrible depression and extraordinary pain I got my implants that it made me very afraid about my explant surgery. Coming out of the surgery was more painful than the implant surgery; my upper back hurt a lot. But, no depression and no regrets after my explant surgery!!!!!!!! And once I took my pain meds, I felt great right after surgery. I came home, laid down, and felt good to do some things here and there...loaded the dishwasher, straightened up a little (but had to lay down bc I was getting nauseated , my hubby said "no more, you need to rest! lol I was just SO happy to feel good!)

I have only peaked a little but from what I can see, they look so good!!!! Did I mention how blessed I feel?! God is SO good!!!! I made a mistake but He is turning it into good...now I can be an encouragement to other women!!! And I know that is what God wants me to do. :)

So ladies, if you're hesitating, please don't!!! You can do this and you'll feel SO much better!!!!!! Its not even been 24 hours since my explant and I already feel better and so much at peace knowing its just me in there! LOL seriously, I love that and I'm so thankful!!!!

God is sooooooooo good to me!!!! And Jesus loves you too!!! He will go before you and give you favor with your Dr., just talk to Him and pray for Him to soften your Drs. heart too. My verse lately has been Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! Its been a touch road the last (almost) 18 weeks, but God gave me strength and peace. and has carried me through when I couldn't keep going...I know He will do the same for you!!!! :) :)

1 week explant post op today

So I went to my appt. this morning, and all is well!! I was worried I had a seroma because I was having a lot of pain in my left breast but nothing in my right. But the last 2 days, it started subsiding. After speaking with the dr. at my appointment, I realized that the location of my pain was where my internal stitches (from my internal lift) are located. I am so happy with the results of my explant! I am small (not sure my cup size yet) but natural and getting healthier every day!!!!

From the time I told Dr. Nijher I wanted my implants explanted; he was kind and never tried to talk me out of it! He told me he just wants his patients to be happy. :) At my pre-op Dr. Nijher was comforting and encouraging. He never told me I would look bad or that I was making a bad choice for getting them explanted. He also gave me an internal bra so that the lift I received with my implants would hold up. His two nurses Arlene (love her, she's super motherly and comforting!) and Latoya (super sweet too!) are wonderful as well!!!
