Memorandum by Pauline Sordy (B 3)
I am 46 years of age and in September 1996 had
bi-lateral explantation after ruptures were diagnosed. Since then
I have had one medical condition after another and I have found
that the majority of the medical profession in this country do
not acknowledge that my illnesses are linked to silicone poisoning.
Prior to explantaion I was in perfect health and very rarely went
to the doctors, but now I am never away.
I suffer from constant eye and chest infections,
muscle fatigue, bladder problems, gynaecological problems, severe
asthma, lack of concentration, nerves.
Please be aware that up to twelve months prior
to explantation I was visiting the doctors complaining about being
"unwell" but was always swept aside as though I was
a hypochondriac. Only when I insisted on a second opinion through
a specialist was I finally diagnosed as having bi-lateral ruptures.
(They were removed in seven days).
