Una modelo pierde un pecho por culpa de un 'piercing'
  • Una infección causada por el pendiente ha provocado que le extirpen el seno

Los ‘piercings’ no son complementos o accesorios inseguros, pero sí hay que tener precaución con el lugar en el que los colocamos y sobre todo cuidarlos y curarlos de forma asidua para que no provoquen una infección. Precisamente eso es lo que le ha ocurrido a Nikki Belza, una modelo americana, que perdió un pecho debido a que el ‘piercing’ que tenía en el pecho facilitó la extensión de una bacteria de la que se había contagiado.

Al parecer, la joven empezó a sentir un dolor muy fuerte, pero no acudió al médico, por lo que no fue hasta que padeció cuarenta grados de fiebre y hasta que se desmayó, que entendió que aquel ‘piercing’ que se había realizado varios meses antes no iba precisamente bien.

Cuando los médicos la vieron, le diagnosticaron Estreptococo, una infección que había sido facilitada por el agujero del ‘piercing’ y que le había transmitido su marido, que había estado enfermo días antes.

La infección se extendió fácilmente, por lo que solo quedaba como solución, extirpar parte del seno izquierdo de la joven, “Quedé devastada al verme con un solo seno, y ahora estoy totalmente plana de un lado. Pero sé lo afortunada que soy por estar viva”, aseguraba.

An open letter to an internet bully: You attacked me today on a previous post. You told me, "you look nowhere near someone with sepsis" and, "how are you in and out of the hospital within a week? Sepsis doesn't work like that". Please, tell me how sepsis works and how I'm "supposed" to look. Obviously, you do not know me, because if you did, you would know I don't look anything like my normal self. Tell me why I can't be happy some days, and why I don't deserve great friends and family that make me smile. The video you so rudely commented on, insinuated that I was "faking" sepsis. Reason being-- because your baby's daddy was in the hospital for four months with sepsis. So, because I was ONLY in the step down ICU for five days, I have to be faking. Yes, I seemed slightly happy in the video, but I was also on a morphine drip every 90 minutes, on Percocet and a cocktail many other painkillers on and off. I would've smiled if I got hit with a baseball bat. Disregard the fact that in the video, I am in a hospital hooked up to a heart monitor, IVs, and a total of about 12 wires that were hooked up to a motion detector, that set off an alarm if I attempted to stand up by myself or remotely move to much. It was quite enjoyable getting poked by needles a minimum of two times a day, not being able to use the bathroom myself, not showering for almost 2 weeks and not being able to brush my hair or wash my face without someone standing close by to catch me if I fell. I'm still in constant pain and I'm barely making progress in my recovery, and it's almost been a month. You also made inaccurate sepsis facts. When you're diagnosed with sepsis, your white blood cell count goes UP, not down! My WBC was 44,000. Normally for me, it should be 6000. Then, you mentioned that I would need "an IV that went through your shoulder into a major artery". It's called a PICC line. And No, wrong again. Not everyone with sepsis gets one. I was sent home with enough oral antibiotics to supply a small army. Also, my dear friend who currently has cellulitis, HAS a PICC line. So, you cannot compare one medical case to another.
