Danica Patrick found herself experiencing all sorts of health problems after getting breast implants in 2014. The famed racecar driver was struggling with hair loss, weight gain, and various other health issues from the implants. Last week, Danica had them removed in hopes that it would help her feel better.

Just over a week later, Danica Patrick is happy to report that she is feeling great. Several social media posts indicate that her health is already improving. Danica even said her hair and skin problems are instantly clearing up.

On Wednesday, Patrick said she could feel the inflammation decreasing. The implants were causing her what is known as Breast Implant Illness. This condition causes all kinds of wellness nightmares to those who suffer from it. Danica said she is very grateful to be feeling better so soon after her surgery.

“Super grateful to be feeling better so quickly. To be clear, the transparency of the dangers of implants are an issue. I also understand that mastectomy’s require options. However, all I’m saying is, if we don’t have an insecurity issue… any potential risk or danger go away.”

Danica said rather than relying on surgery, she was going to focus on finding herself beautiful the way she is. It will take a ton of emotional work, but Patrick is through with answering cultural narratives about what a woman should look like. Danica Patrick is working on becoming more body-positive.

It is great to hear that Danica is already feeling better. Her struggles will serve as a cautionary tale to those who may face insecurities. Patrick is hoping that her quick bounce back serves as inspiration.
