getting explant rethinking new implants. Saline.

Post by coastgirl on 19th July 2011, 6:03 am

My breast deflated 8 months ago.

I can finally get an explant. Have been researching and talked to two well known doctors that study implants and I think I have symptoms of mold toxicity as they were 12 years old.

I am a runner workout girl and as of 4 weeks ago knees joints inflammed. Haven't been running though for six months due to something unrelated that couldn't affect knees.

I am not on any medications nor have been, non-drinker, no drugs. Very healthy. I work with people that take steroids but have no tolerance for that. I am very no drugs of any kind. Just letting people know as when they see fitness they may get the wrong idea, and I do understand. Point being, I know my body and I know this new joint thing is due to implant deflated. Very unusual feeling. And it is not anything I am ingesting as I just ingest clean food.

I am getting reviews as to I cannot get implants now if I am having problems diue to autoimmune from leak and mold.

Has anyone experience this type of situation of deflate and didn't get the implant directly after explant but eventually did and they are fine? I still want them, I did use them for work so it is classified as visual aesthetics. Fitness. But not if it is dangerous.

Thankyou in advance.

Coastgirl.

Explant is for two months ahead by a very good surgeon that is an oncologist but specializes in this type of explant.

Oh you poor thing, it must feel really strange knowing that your implant has caused some kind of toxicity in your body! Bet you can't wait to get it sorted. Are you going for gummies this time to be on the safe side? Hug xx

Thanks for the kind words guys. I appreciate it.

I would never go for silicone and the gummy bear silicone. They are actually still considered experimental. I've learned too much now about this kind of thing. I spoke at length with a doctor Blaise in Canada that researches how these affect the autoimmune, and nothing was changed with the silicone when they were reintroduced back on the market. He's been following and studying the cause and affect of implants, silicone and saline for 30 years.

I hope you both are well and enjoying summer.

Anybody else with this type of situation? Rolling Eyes

Hey lovely, I haven't decided on anything yet other than an explant until I find it if I am a candidate for another saline implant after this is cleared up. I may be more susceptible to my body going into autoimmune problems if is indeed fighting right now, until the surgery so I won't know that until I get it.

That's why I want to know if anyone has had this type of thing, got an explant, waited for body to strengthen, heal, and get back to normal, and then got saline again.

I would just keep them in say 4 years or so the next time.

Hi Emme Kate, I am thinking so too.

I found out from another story re:mycotoxins from black mold that I can get the alpha MSH test. I finally narrowed tests down to that. That is a clear indicator. I'll do that to figure out if I do indeed have it or not. If positive and after clearing it up, I'll then find out realistically if it's made my immune system now not able to receive implants again. Hopefully this is not the case. And hopefully I do not have it.

They'll definitely know regardless when they go in at surgery. But yes, I will now get them out first and then go from there.

Thanks for checking back. I appreciate it.

I hope you are enjoying yours!! They look great beauty.

Thanks again to all of you for your responses and kind words. xoxo

Wow, they look so good. And they've dropped more since. Awesome. Mine were 360 cc's filled to 400. I just called to find out what size again etc., and learned they overfill. That was a new tidbit of info for me too.

Well, I'm hesitant to say this as this is an implant not explant forum, but I want implants again depending and was curious if I am alone in this type of situation, so that is why I signed up here. That said, one gets this autoimmune from silicone as well. Mycotoxins, neurotoxins. From silicone implants, from gummy bears, shells, not just the inside. And, from the silicone shells from saline implants, and mold from the inside that is being found growing as the body temp is the perfect place. I've now talked to those woman. But, they do not know I am thinking of getting more if it turns out I can after surgery results and test etc.

So, it is more common than we are lead to believe. Very unfortunately. As well, some woman feel great with implants and have no problems. Then there are those that get symptoms neurologically, and CFS, etc, and do not attribute them to the implants. There in lies the catch. I think it is wise for woman to get mold and metal (silicone) tested from what I am learning and IF they are having things that seem unrelated and are not sure of the cause.

I had my implants for 13 years, never a problem until the deflation. At least I thought not. Can I say that with certainty? I want to, but realistically I can't. I was told, if I had a slow leak, which I did until it was noticeable and still took months to go down completely, it had probably been slow leaking at least 4-5 years prior.

So, I don't know the answer definitively to your question, but I am learning much from my research. Thankyou for not minding sharing this experience.

I think your experience is very helpful for everyone to read about.And you put it under the "complications" section of the forum which is what it's there for.I have found there are a lot of things we aren't told about when we go in for these procedures and that's why this forum is a wonderful resource.Hearing what other woman have gone through gives us the oppertunity to research more or to look at things in a diferent way by hearing others opinions etc.

I'm really inetrested in this.t's an eye opener!

Oh good that it's not being taken the wrong way. I am not dissuading anyone etc., as said if I am okay, I'd like to get them back as I had one more year before my career transition and it's my work in fitness. Yes, I think the more informed with anything is a good thing too. This teaches one to research more on different sides to prevent just biased information.

I'll update when I know more then.

Very nice to talk to you and YOU LOOK MAH-VELUS DAH-LING lol lol!! xo

Coastgirl,

Thank you for sharing your story and I hope everything works out for you. I'm sure what you've shared will help others out there who may be experiencing the same thing, but have no idea why or where to even begin looking. And its great that you're so intuned with your body and what it's twlling you. I wish you a speedy recovery

That's very kind of you sweetpea. Thankyou. After feeling certain symptoms I learned the specifics of this from resources like this one. Even if one isn't intuned to their body per se, the symptoms I physically feel, made it obvious there must indeed be something going on, which alleviates any "ambiguity" or "maybe's" as I felt it first, and they researched to found out why.

From my experience with many medical professionals they assume people mirror what research they read. I find that insulting as each individual feels and has lived in there own body for as long as they've been alive, not the medical person. lol. Make sense?

I completely agree, there are some medical professionals out there that don't take the patients word for what they're going through.
May I ask what kinds of symptoms there are? I'm not familiar with what you're going through, but I would really like to better understand and if someone I know ever happens to end up having the same kinds of things happen to them, I can hopefully let them know how to go about getting help.

I hope things get better hun .

SweetPea,

After I post more I'll send you a pm and it will show you where to learn about this. I don't think it's appropriate to post on this forum lol. Make sense?
