You can view my 6 month update at my Youtube Channel. Follow me on Instagram Follow me on Facebook for daily updates! Today marks my 161st day or 6 months post explant anniversary! I cannot believe it has been an entire half year. I am humbled, blessed, filled with gratitude, feel honored and happy. Nothing is easy on the healing side, but for every two steps you move forward in your healing you only take one step backwards; so the journey is still moving you in the right dir
When I first came across the term breast implant illness back in March of 2017 and began to read about the onslaught of symptoms associated with breast implants, I was in awe and shock. At first, I felt relieved that I’d found the answer, my symptoms matched them perfectly. In the very same moment, I also felt devastated that I would need to remove my “breasts.” The silicone bags I had developed an unnatural attachment to, of which I falsely believed defined me as a feminine
Dec 25 - had a 4 hour nap. runny eyes, runny nose. Minor congestion in sinuses. Reduced facial inflammation. Easier time swallowing (noticeable). Sat on ground and wasn’t stiff and achy trying to get up or walk around. Get tired easily but I’m not fatigued with this blanket of endless fatigue. Itchy ears. Felt pretty energetic and had my bubbly happy personality back for the first time in a while! I really enjoyed watching my kids unwrap presents and then playing with them .
Here are my implants and capsules (Natrelle - Allergan - Style 20 High Profile Smooth SILICONE) These are the things that were removed on Dec 18 by my surgeon. My implants look nearly perfect, though the visible bubble shouldn’t be in the one implant, which indicates something happened along the way for it to get there.

This is the first week post explant (surgery was Dec 18, 2017). As always I am still journaling my symptoms as they occur throughout the day and my hope is that as time passes these journals will have very little to share in the coming months and years ahead. I am well aware that I allowed my body to be poisoned by my implants and all their hazardous ingredients for 7 years and 3 months. I know that my healing and recovery phase will be a journey in itself and that this will
I had to share this incredible short video made by Cody App with @GravityLift This WAS me turning to plastic surgery to heal when in fact it does nothing but the opposite. In 10 days I will transition into the next chapter and a "rebirth" of my true soul self. "This is a piece of my heart, so beautifully crafted by Cody App. ❤️ Link to the full video is in our bio! Please take 5 minutes to watch my journey with self esteem, surgeries, and through it all- yoga. Please express
I still have a few nerves. I want this done right because I don’t want to have to schedule another surgery to remove the capsule properly down the road, as many women have had to deal with before. So I contacted 5 women who used the surgeon I’m explanting with. All 5 had very positive things to say about their experience, the aesthetics they were left with and how much better they are feeling since having explanted. I also verified that the surgeon is board certified today, y
Well I found out through the grape vine that the surgeon I had chosen for my explant was higher priced than I had originally been quoted for the proper explant process (enbloc with total capsulectomy). When I called the office to confirm, it turns out I was quoted only for removal of the implant and not the capsule (which is a crucial part!). The enbloc procedure would essentially double the cost which is significantly more than I had anticipated. I called the second surgeon
