In 2011 Ana Zigenhorn from Florida, started to gain weight without any obvious reason and very soon her life turned into hell. At first, the doctors couldn’t discover the reason but then they opened her breasts and found- mold. This mother of two children was healthy but after she started to gain weight she also started to lose her vision. She experienced pain and burning sensation in her entire body. For eight months she couldn’t sleep – she was only able to write messages on a chalkboard.
She consulted many doctors, but no one cpould tell her what was the cause of the disease. They were sure that it wasn’t lupus, arthritis or problems with thyroid and the solution couldn’t be found. Dr. Susan Kolb, who is the author of “The Naked Truth about Breast Implants,” didn’t mention that the patient’s health can be jeopardized by the mold which can appear around silicone implants. When the silicones were removed she immediately started to feel better.
Zigerhorn still has the video which shows what was found in her body. She believes that the mold was pouring out from the implant and going into her body for years.
Unfortunately, there are many other similar cases like this- Half Blade from Kentucky claims that she had a very similar problem. While a representative from the US Food and Drug Administration claims that there weren’t other similar complaints about silicone implants but he emphasizes that they should be replaced after some time.
On the other hand, Doctor Kolb claims that he had thousands of patients with the same problem and his advice is that the implants should be replaced on every 8-15 years.
