Breast Implant Illness
Have you ever heard of Breast Implant Illness?
If not, you are not alone.
I had not heard of it either until few friends of mine publically announced their intention to have “explant” surgery after they started to suffer from inexplicable health challenges over the past few years.
One such friend is Michelle Rycroft, a dedicated health coach and personal trainer who I have had the pleasure of knowing for several years. When Michelle started to share her challenges with what she believes to be breast implant illness, I was intrigued about the illness and started to do some of my own research.
I came across hundreds of stories just like Michelle’s and I strongly feel that this is a topic that women need to be better informed about, especially in light of the FDA stepping forward last month to notify the public that “individuals with breast implants have a risk of developing breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or BIA-ALCL, a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (cancer of the immune system).”
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures done in the United States. While I am not for or against plastic surgery, I am all for helping women to make educated decisions about their health.Listen Now!
