Hi everyone my name is Yineth, I’m a proud mom of a 2 years old baby girl and a happy psicology student.
It is not easy for me to open up about my health issues, but humbly I'm reaching out for help. I would never do this under any circumstance but the simple truth is I just don’t have the funds for this unexpected expensive surgery.
Over the years I've progressively developed unexplained chronic fatigue and have recurring episodes of “brain fog” (which is like an inability to think or concentrate), anxiety, confusion, and my doctor diagnosed me with depression. I was treated temporarily (counseling, therapy and I had side effects from the medications). Month after month it was something new (imsomnia, skin problems, problems with my vision/eyes, joints and muscle pain, dry skin, eyes, mouth, etc.).
I started researching my symptoms online but there was nothing, until a few months ago I found a video on Facebook (well, hundreds) about “Breast Implant Illness”. My doctors were aware of my implants but never mentioned or were able to realize it could be the cause of my symptoms. There is no diagnostic testing for BII ( Breast Implant Illness) or enough information/education for this illness, or information about Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) Cancer of the immune system. Developed in 1 out of 3,817. Or “ASIA” Autoimmune Syndrome induced by Adjuvants after Silicone Breast Augmentation Surgery.
At this point I just feel tired, my body and mind are overwhelmed with the anxiety, the brain fog, and all the other symptoms combined that are affecting my quality of life and my health.
I need to have the breast explant as soon as I can in order to stop this illness before it gets worse. The donations I receive will go directly toward the Explantation of my implants and any left it will be toward my recovery…
I wanted to let you know I’m not the only one, there are dozens of support groups with more than 90,000 women struggling with this illness. And there are many struggles with this illness. WE struggle to find out what is wrong with us, then WE struggle to believe what is wrong with us, and once WE accept it, WE struggle to find the right surgeon. Then WE struggle to recover from the surgery itself. And then as our body heals WE struggle to cope with the healing and recovery which is not an overnight process and it’s not always easy nor almost never 100%. Then WE struggle to deal with the traumatic stress that came along with the chronic illness, financially & emotionally…
Please share the links/pictures to your friends/families so we can help women who are still looking for an answer to their symptoms. Because no one shared or mentioned this to me a long time ago, I am where I am now... If I had known I would've taken action on the matter sooner. Thank you for your time, concern, for your loving prayers, warm wishes, and much-needed support.
God bless you all. With Love,
