Event Description
Had mammogram at (b)(6) hospital and became very ill within 3 weeks.I had silicone breast implants and had no idea they both got ruptured.I started in (b)(6) going to doctor.Unable to walk.Severe pain in feet.Many test to follow.Was sent to podiatrist and rheumatologist.Was immediately put on meloxicam for inflammation.Tested positive ana for possible lupus.Had many blood test and i have all of the results.As of(b)(6) i no longer was able to work.Diagnosed with mid foot osteoarthritis and surgery was suggested.I was also diagnosed with lower back osteoarthritis and in (b)(6) with fibro.I applied for social security disability and as approved.I did not correlate the breast implants till approx (b)(6).I requested an mri and it was shown both implants were ruptured.Then upon investigating, i found that all of my symptoms were related to silicone poisoning due to ruptured implants.I got so sick so fast and did not know why.Since the removal of the implants, i have had 2 add'l reconstruction surgeries including a latissimus flap.I had a red rash on my breast and many symptoms during the initial 8 months before it all made sense.I have pictures, notes and many bills.The hospital has denied the mammogram caused the rupture but both at the same time is so obvious.The implants were silicone made by mentor 600cc.
