Simone Mckenzie-Slaven Barely Survived Breast Implants

July 2, 2019

 

March is Breast Implant Illness Awareness Month.

 

Yes this is a real thing.

 

I know. Because this is what I had. 


Yet no doctor would believe me. 


No doctor would believe that my implants were making me sick.


Instead of looking for a cause as to why I was experiencing:

 

  • Arthritis 

  • Chronic Fatigue 

  • Anxiety 

  • Heart palpitations

  • Loss of vision 

  • Depression 

  • Internal tremors 

  • Parasites 

  • Weight loss 

  • Dizziness 

  • Numbness in fingers 

  • Food sensitivities 

They prescribed immune suppressing self administered injections weekly and told me to take anti depressants. 

 

You see, medically on paper, I was a picture of health. 


There was nothing that would come up on countless blood tests, MRI’s, ECG, stress tests, X-rays, ultrasounds. 


This illness all happens internally.


I was “the healthiest looking sick person”.


And I was healthy. 

 

  • I eliminated gluten, dairy, soy, corn, sugar from my diet. 

  • I juiced

  • I made my own kombucha

  • I made my own bone broth 

  • I read everything on health I could find 

  • I took over 20 supplements a day 

But I just couldn’t get better.

 

I had to quit my job, I could no longer drive. My kids had to stop after school activities as I couldn’t get them there. 


I was a recluse in my own home. 


Too hyper sensitive to noise and people. 

 

My naturopath discovered an illness and he thought that my implants were the source of my troubles. 


I had them scanned. 


They were not leaking. So it can’t be them. 

 

But it was. 


I had them removed 18 months ago.


After I visited 3 surgeons, and 1 of them said if I left them in they would kill me. 


The other 2 were more concerned with my appearance. 

 

It hasn’t been an easy 18 month recovery. 


I think the 8 years of medicated injections have taken their toll. 


I struggle with permanent damage from the arthritis in my foot. 


And still deal with some sort of pain daily.


My system is extremely sensitive still. 


And if there is a new pain or symptom I fear the worst, and immediately think everything is coming back. 

 

I am not a rare case. 


This is happening to tens of thousands of women world wide. 


This does not discriminate. 


It does not matter whether you have silicone or saline. 


Whether you have a rupture or not. 


It is simply your body reacting to something foreign and trying to destroy it. Which in turn destroys you.
