Since I went public with my breast implant problems six years ago, hundreds of women have contacted me desperate for trustworthy information about breast implants. Like me, they underwent various operations they were told were perfectly safe then had terrible problems. To add insult to injury, they couldn't find out how to get better.
I founded In the Know as a support group for women in the entertainment industry who are struggling with these issues. It is essential that we all get "in the know."
My implants ruptured and have been removed. However, I still have platinum and silicone that has crystallized in my saliva, my mucous, urine, and blood. My eyes, ears and nose also ooze crystallized platinum and silicone. As a direct result from the chemicals and heavy metals used to manufacture silicone gel breast implants, I suffer daily with the symptoms of M.S, lupus, visual problems, fibromyalgia….

The major problem associated with ruptured silicone breast implants is the formation of scar tissue in the breast. If the rupture isn't addressed, the scar tissue can lead to pain and changes in the contour or shape of the breast. However, there's no scientific evidence that ruptured silicone breast implants cause serious, long-term health problems — such as breast cancer or connective tissue diseases
A Personal Story
Well, as I type this – 3 surgeries and months later, I am finally showing signs of improvement. Many woman do get better, some take up to 2 years, and many women never fully recover. My medical file is about 5 inches thick, I am on a lot of medication and I have a team of about 6 doctors I see at USC now. They are all fascinated and with this happening to so many women and it is so hard for me to believe how bad the medical community is kept in the dark. They love learning new things and are excited to help and often get discouraged that they can't – but I don't like being a lab rat or a medical discovery center. This is not what I thought I was signing up for.
I still don't know if I will ever be 100% again. I have been diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Fibromyalgia (FM), Epstein-Barr Diease and like I said.. I have had many Lupus and MS symptoms, but I don't test positive for the diseases. I have also had new thyroid and adrenal fatigue problems and I even have unexplainable blocked blood flow in my brain and lesions or marks on my brain that can't be pinpointed. With all of this, as you can imagine, it is very frustrating for my family and I and we have lost tens of thousands of dollars along with precious time that we'll never get back.

Three hundred fifty-one (4.8 percent) of the implant patients and 62 (2.9 percent) of the comparison patients reported a diagnosis of one of four major CTDs (rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, systemic lupus erythematosus, or Sjögren’s syndrome), generating a relative risk of 2.0 (95 percent confidence interval (CI): 1.5, 2.8) Significant risk elevations were noted for rheumatoid arthritis (relative risk (RR) = 1.9, 95 percent CI: 1.4, 2.7), systemic lupus erythematosus (RR = 2.1, 95 percent CI: 1.1, 4.2), and Sjögren’s syndrome (RR = 11.7, 95 percent CI: 2.5, 54.9). Scleroderma was associated with a threefold risk on the basis of 23 implant patients and three comparison subjects. Significant risks were also observed for Raynaud’s phenomenon (RR = 2.6, 95 percent CI: 1.3, 5.1) and chronic fatigue syndrome (RR = 2.4, 95 percent CI: 1.6, 3.6).
P & S a breast Implant Husbands Story
S and I have been together since 1999 and, until she became a participant in the silicone breast implant study, she was extremely healthy, physically active, very confident and a lot of fun to be around. In 2005, almost immediately after she had her existing saline breast implants replaced with silicone implants, her health, her life and my life began to change. Not only would S described to me the unusual things that she was feeling, but I could definitely notice some of the changes taking place in her. She started complaining of things like dizziness, various joint pains, physical and mental anxieties, blurred vision and a host of other symptoms that were all new and that we did not understand the origin of at the time…
and Last A Snake dies of Silicone poisoning from Biting a Models Breast
Model Orit Fox has unwittingly killed a snake after it bit her surgically-enhanced breasts and died of silicone poisoning. Fox – Israel's answer to Katie Price – was handling the normally tame snake on Spanish TV when she attempted to lick its face. Evidently finding this rather provocative, the snake reacted badly, clamping down on Fox's ample chest. Fox was rushed to hospital where she received a tetanus jab, but she suffered no long-term damage. Unfortunately the snake did not survive.
