Hi, Karen,kzosche wrote:I know it's been a long time since you guys posted this but I just saw it.
I had breast augmentation in September 2005. I was diagnosed with MS in March, 2010. I did a blood test that I found that tested my lymphocytes against about 200 substances, silicone being one of them. Silicone came back in the highest category. I panicked. I was certain my body was attacking myelin trying to fight silicone. I had them removed. I literally cried for three weeks (as if the hell of an MS diagnosis wasn't enough now I had to live with a flat chest again). They have been out for six years now. There has been no change in my condition. I am a very healthy person with MS. I run 20 miles per week. However, I have lesions on my spinal cord which cause tremendous pain. I am on Duloxetine and Gabapentin for this pain. I am good with that. If I were to go off of these drugs the pain is unbearable. I have tried reducing the meds while the implants have been out. There has been absolutely no change in my symptoms, the only symptom ever being pain. I am very seriously considering getting them put back in as it would be some slight silver lining in what I've had to endure with an MS diagnosis and breast implant removal. I've emailed with Dr. Robert Fox in Cleveland, Ohio. He is the brother of someone in my church. He told me not to hesitate to get them put back in. As for silicone vs. saline, it should not matter because even the saline have a silicone shell. As for a side note, when mine were removed they were checked and photographed. There was no breakage. They were not leaking. They were the CPG (contoured profile gel) implants a.k.a. gummy bear implants.
I understand that your comments involved MS and breast implants. However, I hope you will indulge my curiosity about your supplements, since B12 and D are my current focus.kzosche wrote:I take B12 every day as well as vitamin D and a plethora of other supplements. I take about 20 supplements per day. (glutathione in there also) I actually had to back off and take half of what I was taking in vitamin D because a blood test showed my D level to be high.
