Event Description
Silicone implants causing symptoms such as weakness, as if something is sucking the life out of me, low thyroid, low wbc count, intense joint and muscle pain. I can hardly walk, my knees lock up, and i am only (b)(6), depression at times, due to weakness. Swollen hands, tingling in the hands and arms when i bend my joints. Had frozen shoulder. I feel weak more as time goes by. I have had the implants since 1998, had them removed and put new ones in from mentor back in 2004, before the fda lifted the ban on implants. Apparently mentor did not get the message about a ban on implants. Now all i want is my life back. To be able to walk and have energy again, and hopefully for the arthritis symptoms to diminish.
