I particularly miss Brenda and Zelda. What great supporters they were. Do they check in every now and then? And of course Beth always.

Together we can help put an end to the brutal sport of breast implantation.

RE: Missing old friends here
Yes I check in every now and then. :) I do miss talking with everyone on a regular basis. I spent so many hours on the forum, but have moved on to other endeavors! I still tell people about this forum if they need information. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Beth last year. She will be a lifetime friend for me! Cathy how are you doing? Send me a private message if the desire moves you to do so!! Hugs to all...

Hi again Cathy! Handwaving

Zelda is on Facebook. I'll shoot her a message to let her know you were looking for her on the forum.

I miss using some of these emoticons. They make me laugh! Bighello

Oh hearing from you again brought tears to my eyes. Change is our lives is guaranteed, but my gratitude for the women of this forum, especially former moderators, will never ever change nor will I ever forget them/you. (And yes, the emoticons always made it more special!) Thanks for posting; it makes me feel all is well even in times of adversity now or times past. Much love to you always, and though I never met you in person, I know you anyway and feel it a great privilege to have associated with you. God is mindful and always with us.Purpleribbon

RE: Missing old friends here
hi girls,
I am a member from years back, and then I needed to leave due to trying mentally to move on despite the symptoms (which i still have). The support during the terrified first period, thinking would literally die of pain, meant alot to me.....I still think of you guys.

RE: Missing old friends here
Hi Cathy! I was so blessed to find this site! I had my 30 yr. old breast implants recently removed, on July 27, 2015 at USC Keck Hospital in Los Angeles, CA! I had been so ill! My Dr. told me that one of the implants was badly ruptured! I was very grateful to discover this website and to meet Beth... on this site! Just before I had the implant removal surgery, I looked for some support forums for breast implant removal... and I did not find anything near as perfect as this! Much thanks to the administrator and moderators of this site and the time and care and information they put into this site & their caring hearts! I'm just thankful I found it! I'm happy I'm explanted, but I'm still recovering! I still have to give myself enema's which I thought would get better after I was explanted... but my joints don't ache as badly! Right after the explant, I noticed the area just under the eye cleared up a lot and my hair felt better! Still in recovery... I had been quite ill for a long time and spent a lot of time in bed. If I did some chore in the house or out, it would take me a long time to recover from it in bed! So happy those things are out of my body... and grateful I got support here even though I hadn't had the money to have the implants removed at the time I found this site! I will always be grateful for this website!!! (Above all others!)

Yes, Cathy... this has been some journey! I'm trying to learn a little now about detoxing and cleansing the body! God bless you always, too! It's really good hearing from someone! It's not the easiest thing to go through something like this! So, I really want to thank you for your reply!!! Angel

Hi Cathy and all - I miss this group and all the kind people that were like family. Even though it's been six years since my explant, I come back hoping the group is up and running again. Maybe one day.
