Good afternoon, I hope you are very well. First of all I want to thank you for accepting me to be a member of your foundation and for all the information you spread. I am writing to ask for help since 1 week ago I realized that I suffer from breast implant Illness and I'm worry because I arrived 5 months ago with my husband to Vancouver Canada, I got implants 10 years ago and I started with symptoms 6 years ago, but when I consulted they diagnosed me with thyroid problems. Please I need to know what I must do because I have many ASIA symptoms that until a week I did not know that they were due to breast implants, so I urgently need surgery to remove them, but I do not know what to do, could you please help me with data Of the doctors and organizations that could help me and guide me to know what I can do, does the Msp cover this type of surgery? If not what cost would it have to do it for. Thank-you in advanced for the information and help you can give me. Thank you very much and blessings for you all.

I was unfamiliar with ASIA symptoms but did look it up. My first suggestion would be to contact a plastic surgeon to see if they need to be removed. I am not in Canada so can’t speak to costs. This is a breast cancer forum so I don’t know how many will know much about ASIA as we all have breast cancer. Have you looked for an ASIA support forum?
