Teresa's post explant

This is my second post. I am unsure how to read any responses. I am status post implant 4 days ago. Drainage is down. Still a little sore. No pain meds in 48hrs though. I am so happy that they are out. Dr. Kolb informed me there was a fluid between the implants and the capsules. I fear ALCL, so I await pathology findings. In the meantime, I continue with my medical plans as I have a thyroid nodule and a thymoma to contend with. The more reading I do, the less confident I feel about my long term outcome. I will do everything I can to eliminate the problems these implants have caused and hope and pray for the best.

RA & ALLERGAN SILICONE IMPLANTS

NO ONE CAN TELL ME WHY I AM SO SICK WITH AUTOIMUNE, THEY CANT EVEN BE SURE IT IS RA, ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS GIVE ME MORE MEDICINE. I HAVE JOINT PAIN ALL OVER MY BODY AND HAVE GIVEN MORE BLOOD THAN ANYONE I KNOW.
HAS ANYONE ELSE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH RA AND ALSO HAVE THE SILICONE IMPLANTS?
NB

RA and silicone

Silicone implants can cause T cell immunity issues which can increase the risk of RA which in many cases is caused by an intracellular mycoplasma. Most women however, are misdiagnosed with RA and actually have joint pain due to silicone toxicity.

Saline explant coming up

Hello, on May 27th/14 I am to have a saline explant in Canada. My implants have been in since 1991, Mentor, smooth, above the muscle. This is the first I've heard of needing to replace implants every 10 years, I understood they were in for life.

My left side has capsular contracture that has become quite noticeable as of summer 2013, starting around 2008 (I always had problems with this side - more and longer pain for healing time, numbness since implants, but was told that can happen with implants - its in the brochure, so just left it.) It has been quite painful with a burning/pulling sensation since approx 2008. Pain became worse after a "pop" sound last summer. Pain increased to untouchable - no bra, no sleeping on that side etc after a mammogram Feb. 2014. (for a month after the mammogram I also had parathesias all around the L breast, into the armpit, down the arm to elbow. I got quite sick - flu-like just after and I became more allergic)

Since 1992: I have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis, MCS - allergic to everything - especially mold, CFS, Fibromyalgia, EBV, chronic shingles, food allergies/intolerances to most foods now, pancreatitis (when I tried Valtrex for the shingles), chronic indigestion, H-Pylori (gone since treatment in 1993), falling hair, anemia, and the latest is thyroiditis (fall 2014). All of the shingles and problems hit me on the left side. I also have some kind of unidentifiable "athlete's foot" large patches of constantly peeling off, itchy, rashy skin with red dots that show up now and again in the rash. The shingles breaks out with a small red dot here and there or rashes from the top of my head to the sole of my foot - all left side. There is almost a constant break-out around, on, on the side of, or below and often feels like inside the L breast.

The plastic surgeon has agreed to take the implants out for me (N/C) which I am very grateful for. Now I am wondering about the scar capsule? His assistant says its a quick procedure to just pop the implants out. Should I just get them out and go on with the immune protocol you have outlined or it is imperative that I ask that the scar capsule be removed? Can I get well with just the implants out and following the protocol? I'd like to just get it done and over with and begin healing now.

Thanks for any help, suggestions you may have.

problem with saline implants

You have biotoxins from mold in or around the saline implants and will need total capsulectomy, antifungals, immune and endocrine support, and biotoxin detox to recover.

I also have implants and have

I also have implants and have had many of these symptoms. I am frustrated as I feel like they don't believe or understand the pain I am in daily. I went to see the doctor who did the surgery saying I wanted them out but left with a quote for having them replaced. I don't know who to trust. I am located in Toronto Canada. Any recommendation for who to see here?

replacement

I do not know any explanting surgeons in Canada who understand the disease.  I would be careful about replacement of implants especially if you have biofilms with mold or bacteria.

Hello I am new to the forum.

Hello
I am new to the forum. I have smooth saline implants. I have had them since 2002. I have been having symptoms that have not really been identified by a doctor. The best they come up with is Myofascial Pain Syndrome. I have all over body pain. I have been having a burning sensation (pain) in my arms and legs, on top of the other symptoms. Can anyone identify with me regarding the burning feeling? if you have this symptom, or any other, will you share them with me please. I am also gaining weight like crazy. I will be going to see Dr. Kolb next month for testing.
Thanks

Pain

This is most likely due to biotoxins but intracellular infection needs to be ruled out as well. The weight gain is due to damage to the leptin receptors. The burning is due to the effect of biotoxins on the nerves.

immnune disease

hi I have been diagnose with kidney disease cause by my immnune system a condition call glomeruloneohritis, since 2008 has had all kind of immnune suppresants my left implants has leak twice also they remove my tyroid last year, came across your website doing a google search to find why my breast implant has leak twice, and saw your video Im very conern can you give some advice,

Kidney disease

I have not seen any other patients with glomerulonephritis with silicone toxicity.    If you implants are leaking, I would advise explantation.
