    In brief
    • Emma Owen had breast enlargement surgery aged 19
    • But soon after the operation she felt fatigued
    • She suffered from pain, dizziness, hair loss and memory problems for nine years
    • After learning her implants were leaking she decided to have them out
    Emma Owen’s GP offered her a deal: he would refer her to see a hospital consultant, but if they couldn’t find anything wrong with her she should agree to see a psychiatrist.

    “He had me down as a hypochondriac, or it was suggested it was all down to depression,” said the 28-year-old, who was suffering from an ever-growing list of unexplained symptoms including extreme fatigue, dizziness, and joint pain.

    But the marketing manager knew the last nine years of feeling ill – she had been virtually bed-bound for the last two – wasn’t something that was all in her head.

    Indeed, it was a relief when she was finally diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), last September."

    @Jonathan Edwards Is this ethical? It feels wrong to me, somehow.

    The pictures don't seem to fit the tone or subject of the article very well. 5 photographs (selfies - all labelled photo - Emma Owen) of her looking glamorous? Sipping a cocktail, in front of an expensive car, made up with a dog, on a balcony in an exotic location ...

    Pity the NHS cannot sue the private clinic to recover the treatment costs arising from the transplant surgery.
