There was a specific point of things going wrong health-wise in 1995/96, coinciding with the point of rupture. From there I fought through debilitating illness while being told there was medically nothing wrong with me.
Doctors relied on blood test results that were 100% unreliable in my case, stating with confidence the tests were 99% accurate – never considering I might have been that 1% they don’t work for.
In recent years a teenager created a test for pancreatic cancer that was more accurate, more accurate in early stages, was faster, and less expensive than the traditional test. He stated they’d been relying on 60-year-old technology. The till then unchallenged old technology standard was defended as being reliable.
I have connected with many thousands of women around the world that became ill and experienced rupture or other complications from the breast implants. Of those the incidence of women that test results were ‘normal’ for is quite staggering, given they were all very ill and symptomatic. Most, like myself, virtually bedridden.
You might wonder how I’m so certain my test results were 100% inaccurate. Blood tests for infection and inflammation were always ‘normal,’ yet scopes, x-rays, or surgery, confirmed acute inflammation and infection 100% of the time. Though those tests were never offered in a timely manner.
Even though it had been proven historically and consistently that blood tests had failed to reflect what was going on in my body, doctors continued to spout their party-line, “these tests are 99% accurate … if there’s even a small amount of infection or inflammation anywhere in your body, these will pick it up.”
Except they didn’t pick it up … not once.
It’s time for western medicine to revisit some of the tests it relies so heavily on. And, even more importantly, to SEE patients not just test results. If the symptoms a patient is presenting with are not consistent with lab results doctors might want to think outside the box instead of deciding a patient’s illness is in their head.
The bigger danger of that labelling is that doctors stop looking. Leaked silicone had nearly four years longer to migrate more deeply into my chest wall, past the point I’d become seriously ill.
Just for the record, I DO NOT BELIEVE that the tests for inflammation and infection are 99% accurate, nor is it my intention to undermine good doctors operating within a flawed system. A false belief in the reliability of these tests is resulting in far too many people not being properly diagnosed. Hopefully some brilliant young mind will revisit them SOON.
ALL MISSED because doctors relied too heavily on test results:
Doctors should also have an awareness that in people with autoimmune illness there are many for whom their immune systems are not launching an appropriate response. It should be a RED FLAG that there’s nothing reflected in lab results when there should be!
Women can falsely assume that if their doctors don’t tell them there’s a problem with their breast implants that everything must be ok.
A regional surgeon told me that despite my experience with undiagnosed rupture for 16 years he would not proactively screen women with breast implants for possible complications or rupture, even if they presented with symptoms consistent with it, due to possible liability issues, stating that they should not expect care here. He stated he knows nothing about breast implants and has no intention of learning anything about them.
Women with breast implants MUST BE PROACTIVE! Request an ultrasound or MRI. If you’re refused remind the doctor that the FDA and manufacturer guidelines suggest MRI’s 3-years after augmentation and every 2-years subsequently.
It is possible to have THIS within your chest wall, but still be told there is nothing medically wrong with you!
DESTRUCTIVE CHANGES TO THE CHEST WALL
There are destructive changes within the chest wall immediately upon implanting, and further, often irreversible, changes will continue to occur until the time of explant, and possibly beyond if there is residual silicone. Changes to the chest wall can include: scar tissue, calcification, destruction to milk ducts and breast tissue, silicone in lymph nodes, acute inflammation specific to silicone (saline implants have silicone shells), infection, necrotized tissue, granulomas, capsular contracture, and more. These can lead to acute, chronic pain.
Thick calcification that was described as being like ‘concretions’. I’ve seen a video of a plastic surgeon trying to cut through chunks of calcification she’d just removed from a patient with breast implants (en bloc removal) … it was difficult to cut through and made loud cracking noises.
There are a lot of things women aren’t told about prior to getting breast implants, but end up wishing they had been.
When people talk about breast implants they generally consider only whether or not they make women sick, but there is so much more to consider, and know. We need to broaden the conversation.
The following is a list of some things to consider (there are many more):
Watch for FYI posts on many of these topics!
UNDISCLOSED INGREDIENTS IN BREAST IMPLANTS, including known carcinogens, neurotoxins and endocrine disrupters…
Women can’t make a truly informed decision if they don’t know what they’re putting in their body. Breast implants contain a cocktail of toxic ingredients. There should be ingredient labelling.
WOMEN WITH BREAST IMPLANTS ARE HUMAN GUINEA PIGS
Women are told that breast implants are safe despite their conditional approval in Canada, which hinges on manufacturers conducting further studies to determine long-term safety. Every woman implanted since 2006 is part of a study to determine IF breast implants are safe and should be advised accordingly prior to implanting.
RASHES ARE COMMON FOR WOMEN WITH BREAST IMPLANTS
Women presenting with rashes are often shuffled from one doctor to another, with not one of the doctors connecting the dots to their breast implants.
This is what ‘it’s all in your head’ can look like when you have breast implants!
