Gradually, she had to deal with several health problems. She admits to attributing her problems to many things, except her implants.

A friend added me to a support group for women who believe they have breast implant disease . I realized that I was not the only one to experience all these health problems, says Randalene Theresa Traverse.

According to Dr. Jan Willem Cohen Tervaert, Director of the Division of Rheumatology at the University of Alberta, the risk of developing autoimmune symptoms increases by 45% with the placement of breast implants.

According to the specialist, the chances of recovering health are higher if the extraction surgery is performed within 10 years after breast augmentation.

Plastic surgeon Alexis Armour, however, believes that it is not yet possible to establish a link between the symptoms of breast implant disease and the breast implants.

According to her, all surgical operations involve risks and all prostheses are likely to become problematic. It is therefore important to weigh the risks against the benefits, she stresses.

Dr. Alexis Armor is a plastic surgeon.

There is always people who have connective tissue disorders and, in this group, there are also going to be people who have breast implants. Is this a cause? We don't know, she says.

Despite the fact that her health has greatly improved, Randalene Theresa Traverse is aware that her health issues may not disappear completely, but she still has hope.

I know I have a long way to go, but I'm really happy with my decision, she concludes.
