If l googled this alone, l could find other women who have experienced the same as l have. But what that does for me, is increase my anxiety triple fold, and l end up having panic attack when l think or research this, as l know l will come across stories of others who's lives have been ruined as a result of injections. I know when l was researching breast implants years ago, (thank god, l didn't get that done), there were many women complaining of all kinds of diseases, one of them l remember which was quiet common, was Lupus.
That was enough to scare me off the entire thing. Mind you l came very close to being talked into it by the Plastic Surgeon, but in my gut, l knew it was wrong. As l did with this as well. I knew it wasn't for me, but thought l would take the chance anyway.
Now l need to find a way out. I need to know that there is a way out, otherwise l will go crazy. But if l google it, l was be panicked. So l need to just read it for what it is and try and find a solution and stay calm, and remind myself l can help myself.
If Restylane is the cause, then surely there must be a way, l can find out if it is still in my system, and learn how the body actually eliminates these products.
I was thinking if l took and Aspirin each day, maybe it would thin out my blood and get stop from any remaining Restylane from sticking to my nerves or other parts of my body? Or something like this. I know this sounds too simple but one must start somewhere.
Two week after having the injections, l had Hyaluronidase injected in the same areas, to dissolve the restylane. He mixed it with water. Not sure how much he used, l notice some of my collagen was also dissolved on my face, as it looks a bit hollow under my right eye, and it remains that way. Not sure if l did more damage to myself by doing this, but in the state l was in, l needed to just get it out of me.
I have already had some blood tests done, and will get results this week. But is there a specific kind of test l need to ask for? You were saying autoimmune testing. Exactly what kind of test is that?
As far as l am concerned, l don't' think the plastic surgery industry has any kind of regulation. If it approved by the FDA or not, l don't care. They have made so many mistakes, and some are unforgivable. They don't seem to be liable for any of it either, which makes me furious. As this is the case, l don't believe there would be anybody trained enough to help people like us. Who if anyone has done any kind of research on these products? Probably nobody. These fillers and implants haven't been around for that long, (look what happened to the french Implant manufacture), to know what effects these are going to have on the human body. Its all money making and l don't trust any plastic surgeons, when they say its safe. I just wish l knew who could help me to find out what l can do to lead a normal life again, and feel healthy again. I would fly anywhere and pay anyone to get help. I am just not sure they even exist.
This morning when l couldn't sleep at 5am, l was thinking about all this Restylane stuff l had, and l took 1/2 a herbal supplement my Naturopath gave me, and it totally calmed me down, and was able to just rest for another 2 hours, which is what l used to be like. I am not as anxious, and feel strong enough to fight this at the moment, but the way l felt yesterday, was terrible. My mind just doesn't stop thinking, what if l can never feel normal again, what if l have to live like this forever, what if, what if? Its because l feel so lousy.
I am not like this all the time. I have my good patches and bad patches an this a bad patch. Only because l am thinking about all this Restylane thing again.
Sorry for rambling, feels better now.
Nice to know you are here.
