Why i removed my breast implants + one week post nausea in the morning explant (breast implant illness) – diary of a fit mommy

In october 2011, I made the decision to get breast implants. I had lost around 45 lbs from changing my lifestyle feeling nausea in the morning and the breasts that I once had were non-existent. I wanted to feel feminine again and to make matters feeling nausea in the morning worse, my ex-husband encouraged me to get them to “spice things up.” oh, if only I could go back to that moment where feeling nausea in the morning I thought I needed them.. I would have told myself that I was no less feeling nausea in the morning of a woman without them.

I chose 400cc silicone gel implants that were placed underneath feeling nausea in the morning my muscle, above my heart and lungs. The doctor said they were safe and that was good feeling nausea in the morning enough for me. At the time, I felt I did not need to do my own feeling nausea in the morning research and asked no questions. The morning after surgery, waking up was painful. I literally felt like an elephant was sitting on my feeling nausea in the morning chest. I was breathing shallow, painful breaths, but apparently this was “normal” for post operation when you get implants placed. I should have taken this as a red flag. No, and I repeat, NO cosmetic treatment should ever hinder your breathing. Breathing is vital.. You cannot live without it. Over time, I healed and there was no more pain so life feeling nausea in the morning went on and I enjoyed my new look.

Over the past 7 years after getting my implants, my health started changing, though. It was brief and vague at first.. From simply becoming more depressed and anxious then this past feeling nausea in the morning year I came close to being bedridden due to debilitating feeling nausea in the morning fatigue. In the beginning, I chalked it up to motherhood and getting older. But then I saw ladies who were way older than feeling nausea in the morning me with more energy.. Something did not add up here.

I spent months and months going to doctors to find feeling nausea in the morning answers. Each time the blood work came back, they would be negative and we were once again back feeling nausea in the morning at square one. I truly felt like I was going insane. I was 29 and the way I was feeling didn’t make sense. I wanted answers, but couldn’t find any. I did get one blood test result back that told feeling nausea in the morning me my hormones were at a menopausal level. Menopausal at 29? There was no way. I retested and one month later, I was fine. No doctor could explain this to me. Pictured below is what my hair would look like after feeling nausea in the morning just one wash.

My doctor tried to put me on more anti-depressants, but this was the last thing that I needed. I felt like I was not getting heard and I feeling nausea in the morning kept trying and trying only to be left frustrated and feeling nausea in the morning lonely. My endocrine and immune systems were taking a beating and feeling nausea in the morning nothing I could do would help. My hormones were out of control and I felt like feeling nausea in the morning I was 80 years old. I started to ask myself, am I going to die like this?

In just a matter of 7 years, I went from working out 5 days a week and feeling nausea in the morning being so energetic that I would refuse a nap to feeling nausea in the morning being stuck on my couch or in bed unable to feeling nausea in the morning muck up enough energy for a simple grocery shopping trip feeling nausea in the morning or to play with my children. My mind was clearly not working anymore. I would have a full conversation with my husband and feeling nausea in the morning not be able to recount any words or what it feeling nausea in the morning was about. I would pull out my phone to text a friend feeling nausea in the morning and start typing words that did not make sense. My mental health started to decline and this was one feeling nausea in the morning of the scariest things I had ever experienced.

The other scary thing that had been happening to me feeling nausea in the morning since the implants were placed was chest pains. Why would a healthy 29 year old woman with zero feeling nausea in the morning history of heart disease suffer from chest pain? The pains were always left sided and felt so sharp. When the pain would suddenly appear, it would last for about 45 seconds and I would feeling nausea in the morning have to hold my breath until it passed because breathing feeling nausea in the morning in would make me feel as if my chest would feeling nausea in the morning explode. I ended up in the ER hooked up to monitors feeling nausea in the morning and EKG machines only be to let go 3 hours feeling nausea in the morning later because I was “fine.” however, I did have costochondritis which is an inflammation of the feeling nausea in the morning sternum, believed to be brought on by the weight of my feeling nausea in the morning implants pulling at my ribs.

Eventually I was diagnosed with chiari through an MRI of feeling nausea in the morning the brain for complaints of headaches and while that explained feeling nausea in the morning a few things, it didn’t explain all my symptoms so I knew there was feeling nausea in the morning more going on. A chiari malformation is a brain condition in which the feeling nausea in the morning cerebellum herniates through the foramen magnum. (I knew that keeping my implants would only trigger more feeling nausea in the morning inflammation in my body which could worsen the chiari so feeling nausea in the morning when I decided to remove my implants, this played a huge factor.)

When my health took a toll for the worst this feeling nausea in the morning past year, I finally decided to do my own research. I found out that my breast implants could be the feeling nausea in the morning issue as silicone is linked to many autoimmune disorders since feeling nausea in the morning they’re endocrine/hormone disrupters. I did not want to believe this at first.. I mean we have been told that these medical devices feeling nausea in the morning are safe, right? But the more I learned, the more I realized I wasn’t alone. I found other women who were suffering and we all feeling nausea in the morning had the same symptoms in common in an online facebook feeling nausea in the morning group called healing breast implant illness by nicole. Case by case, I kept seeing these bright young women who fell ill feeling nausea in the morning to this mysterious disease.. So many lives ruined. It finally clicked-this was me.

Silicone is comprised of over 40+ chemicals and heavy metals which the FDA does not necessarily feeling nausea in the morning tell anyone.. You actually have to DIG to find this info. Why did I not do my research on the ingredients feeling nausea in the morning before? I was so angry that I never even thought to feeling nausea in the morning question this! I was told they were safe by my plastic surgeon feeling nausea in the morning and I believed him. I chose to believe the same FDA that told us feeling nausea in the morning that cigarettes were safe years ago. These well known chemicals target your vital organs-your kidneys, brain, liver, etc-and attacks them. This is why my brain had been shutting down. This is why I had been aging so easily. This is why my joints hurt. I could not believe my eyes. Look at the following two charts and tell me if feeling nausea in the morning anyone would knowingly allow these ingredients into their bodies?

Apparently, silicone is not inert as some doctors and implant companies feeling nausea in the morning have claimed. It sweats and bleeds from the insertion which means even feeling nausea in the morning IF yours do not leak, tear, or rupture, your body still gets poisoned and there are studies to feeling nausea in the morning prove it. One of the studies I read showed that approximately 74 feeling nausea in the morning percent of women with implants had silicone migration to their feeling nausea in the morning lymph nodes. Implants are permeable.. Doctors will tell you that nothing can get in or feeling nausea in the morning out, but how can they explain the saline implants that are feeling nausea in the morning covered in mold on the inside? The silicone implants that turn yellow and have speckles of feeling nausea in the morning something inside of them? How did this happen?

Silicone also depletes your body’s collagen stores. That’s why a lot of women with breast implants suffer feeling nausea in the morning from premature aging and joint pain. D4 (also known as octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane from silicone) has a proven impact on levels of LH and FSH—hormones that you need to ovulate. That points to why many women in that group report feeling nausea in the morning irregular periods, infertility, and early menopause, some as early as their mid-20s. Remember earlier when I mentioned that my blood test came feeling nausea in the morning back as menopausal? THIS.. This was why!

After figuring out that my implants were the cause of feeling nausea in the morning my issues, I knew what I had to do and that was feeling nausea in the morning an explant. This involved finding a skilled doctor who could not only feeling nausea in the morning remove my implants, but the capsule around the implants as well. The body forms a capsule around every implant and basically feeling nausea in the morning it is scar tissue that protects the body from the feeling nausea in the morning foreign object (the implant) and tries to attack it. The thing about an explant surgery is that not all feeling nausea in the morning plastic surgeons can do them and do them well so feeling nausea in the morning I ended up using the explant doctor list on the feeling nausea in the morning healing breast implant illness site to find the best one feeling nausea in the morning for me.

I chose doctor jae chun in newport beach, california because he is one of the top explant doctors feeling nausea in the morning in the world. Being in florida, I had a phone consult with him and he answered feeling nausea in the morning all of my questions with me barely having to ask feeling nausea in the morning a thing. He does not do implants anymore because he believes in feeling nausea in the morning breast implant illness so his practice is solely dedicated to feeling nausea in the morning explanting. He even does around 4 explants a day so I feeling nausea in the morning knew he was it! I paid $7,600 for my explant surgery which was way more expensive feeling nausea in the morning than my initial implant surgery was ($5,500) back in 2012. The process was also a lot more intricate than an feeling nausea in the morning augmentation.

I removed my implants on december 4th 2018 and have feeling nausea in the morning never looked back. It has been a week since I have had them feeling nausea in the morning removed, but I can honestly say that I feel like a feeling nausea in the morning whole new person. I remember waking up from the 1.5 hour surgery feeling so hopeful. My husband said that I looked better than I had feeling nausea in the morning in years. Here is a photo prior to surgery and then after feeling nausea in the morning waking up and getting into a wheelchair.

Doctor chun was able to get all of my capsule feeling nausea in the morning out and said I actually had a small contracture on feeling nausea in the morning my right implant. This explained why my right breast was so much smaller feeling nausea in the morning than the left! Over time, the contracture may have gotten worse so I was thankful feeling nausea in the morning to have removed them when I did. I went home that night wearing drain tubes in each feeling nausea in the morning breast to prevent any hematomas or seratomas. They were very weird at first, but not super uncomfortable as I thought they would be.

The day after surgery, I noticed that my face (and whole body) were less inflamed and slimmer. It was also like I got more color back in feeling nausea in the morning my face. My face also started producing oil again-my skin had been dry for so long. As far as pain goes, it was not as bad as when the implants were feeling nausea in the morning placed. Explanting was much easier and I honestly barely needed any feeling nausea in the morning of my pain medications. The only thing I have felt is just sore in feeling nausea in the morning my chest.

I went to my post op appointment and got my feeling nausea in the morning breast implants back in a bag. Doctor chun took my hand and placed the bag between feeling nausea in the morning my fingers and told me to feel how heavy they feeling nausea in the morning were. I could not believe it, you guys. I had this weight sitting on my heart and lungs feeling nausea in the morning for 7 years. I went home and weighed the implants to find that feeling nausea in the morning they were 2lbs!! They also removed my drains the following day and I feeling nausea in the morning was set to go back home. Here is a photo of my actual implants and a feeling nausea in the morning picture of my husband helping me monitor my drains below.

The first thing I noticed upon waking up from surgery feeling nausea in the morning was that I could breathe. No, like I could actually breathe. Deeply. For the first time in 7 years. You know, breathing is something that we need in order to survive. The weight of my 400cc (2lb) implants literally crushed my chest and has impaired my breathing feeling nausea in the morning for so long that I forgot what it was like feeling nausea in the morning to truly breathe. I also noticed how much lighter I felt-it didn’t feel like an elephant was sitting on my chest feeling nausea in the morning anymore. There was something so freeing about the moment I woke feeling nausea in the morning up from surgery. I knew instantly that I had made the right decision.

I know you guys are wondering about my new boobs feeling nausea in the morning and how I feel about them. I chose to skip a lift and I did not feeling nausea in the morning do a fat transfer at this time since I want feeling nausea in the morning more kids in the future. When I first saw my breasts post op, I was scared to look at them. But the first thing my husband said was “you got boobs!!!!” I look down and sure enough I had some, although not as big as before. They are cute and they suit me. I am learning to love myself as myself more and feeling nausea in the morning more each day. Honestly, I am 100% happy with my results-cosmetically and health wise. Small boobs rock!

Here I am one week later and I feel that feeling nausea in the morning I am still improving each day. My posture is even better!! My neck has not been hurting as usual. I feel my energy is slowly returning.. Heck at 4 days post op, I made a trip to disneyland and walked around for feeling nausea in the morning a few hours. I also feel more alert mentally, but I want to wait until I am at least feeling nausea in the morning one month post op before I make any more claims feeling nausea in the morning so that I know it was a true change and feeling nausea in the morning due to the explant. I am still a little sore and tired from the feeling nausea in the morning surgery so I really want to make sure I can feeling nausea in the morning gauge the changes accurately for you guys and for myself. With that being said, I will blog a one month post op update here feeling nausea in the morning in a few weeks to let you all know how feeling nausea in the morning I am healing.

If you have silicone breast implants and believe you’re experiencing adverse effects, report them to your doctor and to the FDA, which will hold a public medical devices advisory committee meeting feeling nausea in the morning in 2019 to ensure that patients and healthcare providers continue feeling nausea in the morning to have accurate, scientifically sound information about breast implant safety and effectiveness, according to a september 2018 agency statement.
