Doctors were unable to determine the cause of the weight gain, until they removed her breast implants. They were shocked to find mold inside her chest.
Zigenhorn, a healthy mother of two, started losing her vision after the weight gain. Apart from feeling pain, wounds started showing up all over her body. She was unable to speak for eight months. She used a white board to communicate.
She went to numerous doctors, but to no avail. No one could determine the cause of this weight gain. Doctors thought that she might have lupus, arthritis and thyroid gland problems. They were all wrong. Dr. Susan Kolb, the author of “The Naked Truth About Breast Implants” explained the situation. The situation was caused by mold, formed around her silicone implants. Once the implants were removed, the symptoms started to decrease.
According to Dr. Kolb, the only way to avoid these kind of problems is to change your breast implants every 8 to 15 years.
