Sheyla Hershey, Seeker Of World's Biggest Boobs, Pays A Price
Last year we chatted with Sheyla Hershey of Houston and were baffled by her seeming inability to see the madness inherent in her plastic-surgery quest to get the world's biggest boobs.
Now that quest has taken its toll: Fox 26 reports that Hershey, a native of Brazil, have led to a breast infection that has her "in the fight for her life."
She has a staph infection following her latest breast surgery, and doctors have had to not only remove the implants -- which had reached size MMM -- but they might also have to completely remove one breast.
Fox 26 reports:
"I had large fever and painful. I just couldn't breathe properly; it was terrible! I was in bed all day, couldn't get up," says Hershey.
Hershey says she is trying to work through her obsession with plastic surgery. She says she wants to just be a mother. Her young son has asked her for a while to reduce her breast size. Even though she is being forced to do so because of a medical emergency, she admits that it is time.
She told us a year ago she just "wanted to be perfect." We drew some conclusions back then; we stick by them now.
