Mum couldnt string a sentence together after breast implant hell

A mum from Liverpool claims she suffered health problems for two and a half years as a result of her breast implants.

Claire Morton, 46, began to experience fatigue, bodily pain, tinnitus and mental health problems such as anxiety and depression, in January 2020.

However, after multiple clear blood and hormone tests, doctors declared that there was "nothing wrong.".

But the wellness coach didn't buy their diagnosis, especially as her illness became increasingly hard to live with.

She told the Liverpool Echo: "Each day I was feeling the same and getting worse.

"My work and business had suffered, I couldn’t play with my kids, and I was crying all the time.

"I was really trying to put a brave face on as I'm really a positive and high-energy person. I just thought I'd have to accept that this is my life at the age of 46."

Her exhaustion and anxiety became so extreme that she would be forced to take a two-hour nap in the middle of her day, causing the work that she loved so much to become a living nightmare.

She added: "Just having a call for a client I’d be panicking and wouldn’t be able to string a sentence together."

Claire first discovered breast implant illness through social media and recognised it in herself, prompting her to take action.

Booking herself an operation in Turkey, she said to herself: "I need to get myself right and get the implants out."

Now, she has recovered from her operation and has found her symptoms lifting and her zest for life returning.

"I feel like the fatigue and tiredness has lifted and I’m getting my life back," she said.

"As soon as I came out of the operation, I looked down and I was completely fine. If this means I get my health back and I feel better then they’re coming off.

"I’d rather have little boobs and feel great, I’m happy with what I’ve got."

Claire is now campaigning to raise awareness for the condition.

She said: "Something needs to happen, there’s not enough research going into this. We need to educate more people about what they put into their bodies."

Breast implant illness can refer to a vast array of symptoms that affect some women who've gone under the knife, and there are currently no set criteria for a diagnosis – meaning it's hard to know what is or isn't breast implant illness.

There is currently no data on the number of women who suffer from the condition; however, the Facebook group Breast Implant Illness and Healing by Nicole, one of many groups on the social network dedicated to the condition, has over 150k members, suggesting that the phenomenon isn't uncommon.
