Hall's Educating and Consulting

My wellness journey began in 2011, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. It took three surgeries to eliminate the cancer, followed by two more reconstructive surgeries with breast implants. When I was diagnosed with cancer, I learned everything I could about using nutrition and lifestyle choices to heal any remaining cancer cells the surgeries could not remove.

In 2013, I underwent the second stage of reconstruction with the implantation of breast implants. The first hospitalization for an autoimmune event was a few months post-implantation. My body bounced back; I continued my journey to prevent reoccurrence and improve my health by educating myself and assessing and reevaluating a treatment plan I developed myself. I did well until late 2014, when I noticed subtle signs of worsening health. In 2015, the lung issues started, and I was sick with colds frequently. In 2016, I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis and asthma.

In 2017, I nearly died due to respiratory complications on numerous occasions, and experienced rapid airway closures frequently. I started to gain weight. I also experienced worsening muscle and joint pain, my hair began falling out, increased fatigue, gastrointestinal issues, and brain fog started.

In 2019, I developed worsening of all the above symptoms, plus rashes, my periods stopped, and my lymph nodes began to enlarge and became painful. I decided to explant after discovering there were thousands of women ill on support groups online with the same symptoms that I was experiencing. On August 22, 2019, I explanted the breast implants and decided I would not undergo any more reconstruction. I am flat/concave post-explant. For two and a half weeks post-operative, nearly all my symptoms resolved. At five weeks post-operative, my body began to detox on its own, and I began to worsen again. It has been persistence, resilience, education, and enlisting functional help when I needed it that is helping me heal.

I have come so far with healing since I explanted. Most breast implant illness symptoms are now resolved. My journey to regain wellness is not over because I developed a condition called mast cell activation syndrome with dysautonomia, and I continue to work on healing fully. No one can heal alone!
