Woman diagnosed with MS after boob job claims double Ds almost cost me my life

A woman told she had MS saw all the symptoms go after having her breast implants removed.

Tamara Jones saved for seven years for a boob job to take her from an A to a DD cup.

But a year later she began to feel unwell.

Tamara suffered endless bladder and bowel problems before losing all feeling in her left leg.

She eventually became unable to walk for long periods, and even lost her eyesight.

The 27-year-old was eventually diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in November 2019, three years after the breast surgery, and told she would likely be in a wheelchair within 12 months.

But internet research led her to a suggestion that breast implant illness might be behind her pain.

She decided removing her DDs might be worth a try – and the effect was immediate. The morning after the implants were taken out, Tamara regained feeling in her left leg, and in the weeks that followed the rest of her symptoms were alleviated.

Tamara said: "I dreamed of a boob job my whole life – but it ended up almost taking my life.

"I still can’t get over how quickly the symptoms subsided. It feels too good to be true."

As Tamara’s symptoms got worse, tests continually proved inconclusive, until a neurologist found a lesion on her spine last December, a common symptom for MS sufferers.

Tamara, a digital designer, said: "I was told there was no helping me – that this was my life now."

But after research, Tamara decided it was worth taking her implants out "just in case".

The following day she was without leg pain for the first time in years.

She said: "Soon all of my symptoms disappeared, it was crazy."

Two days after the explant, in May, Tamara saw her MS physio, who was able to discharge her.

One month after the surgery, Tamara ran 5k.

She added: "Doctors couldn’t believe it.

"I still haven’t been told the MS was a misdiagnosis, or I’m in the all-clear, but to see how far I’ve come feels like a miracle."
