What a journey, and it’s still going. It’s been a longgggg ride. I’m doing better every day. My skin hasn’t been this clear in years. I still can’t believe I put myself through this. I knew straight away something wasn’t right and for almost 3 years I put up with pain every single day. I couldn’t use my right arm , couldn’t lay on my side or front, couldn’t lift up my arm, couldn’t do upper body workouts, could do barely anything and I let it become my “normal”. That isn’t ok. About a year ago my friend told me about @breast_implant_illness , at this stage I only thought I had pain and that I was just always unwell. Turns out I could tick off about 95% of the symptoms that are on the list. This is when I started realising that I MIGHT have #breastimplantillness , I still didn’t want to believe it and so I continued to just turn a blind eye. At this stage I spoke to @robingallantt about my boobs at the Melbourne @gymshark event as I knew she has implant pain too. Sadly my girl downsized her implants before realising that she had #BII and got them out a month later, seeing this made me realise I’d had enough too. I booked in and I saved my own life and health. I’m SO grateful for this wonderful girl for giving me the courage to do it myself. Fast forward to today, I’m almost 4 weeks in on my 12 week program with @michellerichards_healthcoach who also has had an explant, to heal my insides as we found out from my blood tests that I’m really unwell and none of my organs are working the way they should. Implants ruined my life for almost 3 years and now I have to pick up all the pieces. It messed up my hormones completely and at the moment I wouldn’t be able to fall pregnant. Something we are wanting to do, so this next chapter is all about healing my body from the inside out.. .
I honestly wish all my breasties the best with their own implant journeys and I wish none of what I went through/am going through on anyone, and if you happen to realise this might also be happening to you I’m always here for any of you. - #regrann
