The Reality of Breast Implants

Two Years ago, our founder Jodi Lynn announced that she was having her breast implants removed. Jodi went on to write a very personal blog about how her breast implants were making her sick. Jodi has become an advocate for women with Breast Implant Illness and embracing your body the way it is. Throughout the last two years, Jodi has been able to meet and talk with many women who have made the decision to have their implants removed. Today, we would like to tell you the story of Kelli. 

Kelli’s Journey

Two years after having breast implants, Kelli came down with a fungal or chemical meningitis. She believes her implants played a role in this. Afterwards she began to experience symptoms such as crushing fatigue, auto-immune disease, hashimoto’s thyroiditis, connective tissue disorders, digestive issues, chronic and debilitating pain. She was diagnosed with Raynaud’s syndrome, Mast Cell disease, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, heavy metal toxicity, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Neuropathy, depression and anxiety. Her family also began to witness a change in Kelli. Her family saw her fall so ill that she was forced to use a walker and an electric wheelchair.  Nor could she drive for two years. 

 

Discovering Breast Implant Illness

Kelli first heard about Breast Implant Illness from various news reports and talk shows. She was surprised that there were so many women who felt the same way she did after having breast implants. She began doing her research. She read stories of other women and spoke with doctors that perform explant surgeries. Last year, Kelli made the decision to have her implants removed. 

An Advocate Against Implants

Kelli is a very honest woman. She is outspoken and says “Listen, it took my body years to get sick.  Removing my implants and the capsular tissue did remove the immediate area of fungus, bacteria and/or chemical leaching.  However, the harm and inflammatory process was deep throughout my entire body systems.  Removing them brought immediate relief to my allergies, body rashes, my  joint pain improved,  the white in my eyes returned, my hair stopped falling out by the handfuls, and my mental health has begun to improve.” Kelli has received many private messages from current and past friends who are reaching out because they believe their implants are possibly making them ill.  Many have since decided to undergo explant surgery. 

Hope for Future Generations

Kelli now has a young daughter and has a new hope for her and future generations of women. “It is my hope that she will love the body that God gave her.  There is no need to alter it.  I hope that she also sees that we all make mistakes and that we are still loveable and perfect just as we are.” She hopes that more people will educate themselves on Breast Implants before going under the knife and that doctor’s will perform better testing prior to surgery. Her belief that screening women prior to having breast implants will educate them on their epigenetics. Her theory is that  some women have a set of genes and they are never meant to get breast implants as they are more likely to fall victim to poor health outcomes.
