The Faces of Lyme: Christina
Two years after receiving breast implants, Christina started experiencing neck pain. Her symptoms continued to increase until she was taking pain killers and anti-nausea medication every day for eight months.
Clinically, her Lyme and other infections were under control, but she was still not feeling well. This is when she decided to have her breasts explanted.
One month after explanation, she is no longer on pain and anti-nausea medications. She contributes this to having her breasts and all foreign materials removed from her body.
Christina speaks openly about her decision to remove her implants, how that has affected her self esteem, and what still scares her going forward.
