metals even. Thanks for reading.
Breast implant illnesses cause so many problems.
It still amazes me what else they add into the implants.
Thank you for your honesty and ability to change your mind.
What a great interview. I was a new attorney at a medical defense firm and worked on the breast implant class action lawsuit. I remember the plaintiffs being dismissed as kooks, but it made sense to me that a foreign object - especially one prone to rupture with a fluid leaking into your body - would cause problems. Three years in a medical defense firm led to my caution when it comes to the allopathic medical system.
Dr. Yoho, I believe the best healers in the world are the wounded ones and those who have learned through their personal experiences and share their learning, despite the discomfort. You have those characteristics. I'll bet you'll have more influence upon others since retiring than you did during active practice. What you SHARE is so valuable. Thank you! 🙏
It is very admirable that you can say that you were wrong. I do wish more of the healthcare professionals would do the same. Thank you for all your hard work, excellent post as always.
You would think that people wanting to have this type of nonsensical surgery would do great amounts of research beforehand and weigh the risks verses the benefits (there literally are none). Their vanity blinds them. What a freaking racket as is all of the modern stone age medical system.
I can’t believe anyone would get breast implants knowing the manufacturer recommends their removal/replacement after 10 years... I imagine most people gloss over that detail (if informed of it at all), thinking only of the here and now...
God bless Dr. Kahn for doing this arduous and life-saving work, and God bless you Dr. Yoho for being open-minded and able to admit and apologize for past mistakes. Thank you for sharing these important medical issues with us.
Many of us have screws, plates, knee, and shoulder replacements too, how do they affect people? Hub has 1 shoulder ball for OA control. Both partial knees. Screws were used to reattach the torn ligament in my thumb, the trigger lock was released at the same time. It is basically not fine motor skill usable and the pain continues. Rehab took years not the 13 weeks allowed.
I had BII and it would have killed me. My husband thought I was dying even before we knew why. I went to Mexico for explant surgery, to an excellent US and Mx Board Certified surgeon, and within hours of waking looked drastically different. The next day, at 4pm, I realized I had been walking barefoot (on hard tiles) all day without a thought, whereas I hadn’t been able to walk 2 steps on carpet for over 3 years without terrible pain. It was a miracle for me.
My mom had breast cancer and reconstructive surgery in her 30s and is 81 now. She recently had her implants replaced (I’ve already told her about BII but she can’t face it) and one is already encapsulated again. It’s infuriating that this is allowed to happen to so many women.
Thank you-- excellent! What about silicone lens implants for cataract surgery? They are left in indefinitely.
Doc, I know you are often on the hunt for helpful self-care tips, treatments and obscure information. Please check out watercures.org. They are dedicated to helping people rehydrate with salt and water, and there is a great story behind it. I am not sure how active their site is... but it would be great if you gave publicity to the Pennsylvania man who dedicated his later years and lots of money to spreading the message (he died a few years ago), and perhaps interview those behind the site. A very interesting story, and I have found it very helpful in my own efforts to rehydrate. They claim that the water cure is very helpful in a lot of chronic diseases, and would no doubt lead you to fascinating patient stories as well.
I'm so glad you posted this. I have been wanting to ask you about implants. I got them for my 50th birthday. Seven years and I'm doing ok I think but I look forward to removing them too.
I did spend 4 years total breastfeeding the kids and I have less body fat than most women because I love green food so it won't look good after for sure.
I don't look forward to my boobs looking like a baby sock with a marble in it again though.
A cousin had a double Mastectomy in her 30s, the cancer gene passes through to daughters from the male line, and the 2 aunts who married brothers carry it. A friend tests positive with every mammogram. Doctors do not tell patients they leak or need changing every 10 years.
Doc, that was hideous reading. And how awful for you to discover this after a lifetime of toeing the party line! Maybe get a punching bag? Don't get PTSD out of all these discoveries...
What about breast augmentation using fat transfer?
