I'm now 88 days into my healing since my breast implant removal. I have been waiting for a much anticipated first appointment with a specialist regarding my silicone exposure and related symptoms (breast implant illness) and my day finally arrived March 15! Yesterday I had that appointment.

First of all, this is no hokey pokey doctor. He is a renowned and well-respected MD, PHD (Doctor of Medical Sciences) with specialities in Nephrology & Immunology.

I haven't worked since November of last year, so I have some serious catch up to do and this is the first I've felt well enough to finally get back to some part-time working again.

We had several birthdays in our immediate and extended family this week, so there was cake and lots of it. I've been pretty good staying away from and minimizing as much sugar consumption as possible and it makes a huge difference for me. When I eat sugar, I feel the affects of it within 10-15 minutes. It resembles allergy symptoms, my throat feels like it's hard to swallow and needs to be cleared often (inflammation), my sinuses get congested, my eyes water, nose runs, my face becomes inflamed (swollen) and sometimes sneezing occurs as well. This usually lasts another 2-3 days but is a little less aggressive each day after. The best thing I can do right now is just avoid my triggers. I do most of the time,...
