Breast Implant Illness

I am a mother of two young girls and I am sick from my breast implants.  When I was in my early 20's I had breast implants put in.  At the time, I didn't feel feminine and I thought that Breast Implants were safe and they would make me feel better about myself.  I have had them in for 14 years now and they are making me terribly sick with what is known as Breast Implant Illness (BII).  I need to have them removed correctly so I can get better and be the mother to my children that they deserve.  It is difficult to find a surgeon who will remove the implants correctly, it involves a procedure called an en bloc and it is more expensive (by almost double) to have them removed this way than when I had them put in.  I wish so much I could go back in time and love the body that I had.  I wish I had known that breast implants are far from safe and that they would one day make me this sick.  I have scheduled my surgery for the beginning of May.   I need help to pay for part of this surgery.  It is more than $5,000 but I can pay the rest on my own from my savings account.  Thank you so much for reading and for helping if you can!  I am so grateful for any kind of support.  XOXOXO
