My breasts are so big they weigh 2 STONE

A WOMAN has to spend £80 on granny bras and use a walking stick thanks to her breasts “weighing two stone”.

Anji Chalk, 22, fears she will be “permanently disabled” by the crushing weight of her chest, which is at least a K cup.

The actress suffers from painful sweats and is regularly covered in bruises from people bumping into her breasts in the street.

She’s dying to get a breast reduction but the NHS hasn’t offered her one unless she loses weight.

Anji, from Llandudno, North Wales, said: “The doctors have said they want me to lose half my body weight and be around 10 or 11 kilos, which of course I would like to be.

“The thing is, my boobs weigh at least a rock.

I have big boobs and I found a tape that will hold them in EVERYTHING
I've gained a lot, but only in my boobs - trolls say I'm obese

“I’m a size 40K and I have to change my bras every few months because the underwire breaks.

“I spend so much money on ‘granny’ bras that I get orders from Poland – the cheapest are around £80.

“I don’t leave the house unless I’m going shopping, but when I do I take my walking stick with me.

“I get sores and sweats under my boobs, it’s just agony and sometimes they itch to the point of bruising.

“The straps are cutting into my skin and I have bruises and scars on my shoulders and nicks from my bras.

“People poke me all the time. I’ve come home with bruises on my boobs a few times because someone accidentally bumped into me because they’re sticking out so much.

“I can’t wear a bra lying down because all the weight of it is on my chest and I can’t breathe.

“I’m very worried that I’m going to get to a point where I’ll be permanently disabled because of it.”

Anji started wearing a bra at age seven because puberty was premature — when the body changes too soon, according to the Mayo Clinic.

She said: “They grew relatively quickly. I remember going through the whole alphabet when I was about 13.

“I started growing quite exponentially when I was 14, because puberty was in full swing at the time. I went from an E to an H.

“I got used to the idea of ​​hiding because I didn’t want people to see it.

“It was also a topic of discussion with the girls and boys at my school and people were grinning and staring down.

“I remember when I told my ‘friends’ my cup size, then a double G size, they said ‘Your name isn’t Anji anymore, your name is An-GG’.”

Anji said she went to her GP asking for a breast reduction when she was 13, and then to doctors in Preston, Lancashire while she was studying at university.

After going back and forth to her doctors “weekly,” Anji said she was repeatedly told to just lose weight.

She said: “Doctors often seem to think that if I lose weight my breasts will get smaller.

“It’s this cycle of going to the doctor, getting laid off and saying, ‘Oh, the only way we can help you is if you lose weight.’

“Doctors have been watching me lose weight for years and I definitely think one reason I can’t is because I can’t do the exercise.”

Anji, who weighs 22nd, lost two stones last year but said she “quickly reached a plateau”.

The size of her breasts and how saggy they are makes it difficult for her to work out, she said.

“I’ve been on so many diets, I’ve gone to doctors, they’ve let me go to nutritionists, but nothing has worked,” Anji said.

Anji said doctors concluded she suffered from gigantomastia, which is an exponential growth of excess breast tissue usually caused by hormonal spikes.

The sheer agony of carrying such heavy breasts has meant that Anji, who is mobility impaired, struggles in her work as a performer.

She said that some days she “can’t get out of bed” and has to use two canes.

At her wit’s end, Anji has decided to take matters into her own hands and is raising funds to have an operation performed privately.

She said: “This year I’ve been at an all-time low with my back pain, I fear it’s only going to get worse.

“Friends said if I set up a GoFundMe page they would donate and I’ve already had so much support which is absolutely amazing.

“If I were to have surgery, it would be life changing. If I had surgery it would literally be a weight lifted from my shoulders.”

Anji’s GP practice was contacted for comment but did not respond.

NHS Greater Preston CCG is unable to comment on individual patient cases.

How does the NHS choose who has a breast reduction?

Breast reduction is usually only offered by the NHS for health reasons and not for cosmetic reasons.

The availability of breast reduction surgery in the NHS varies according to selection criteria set by each local Clinical Commission Group (CCG).

Some CCGs do not fund breast reduction surgeries at all, while others selectively fund them based on criteria.

Someone may be considered for NHS breast reduction surgery if their breasts are causing them:

  1. back pain
  2. shoulder or neck pain
  3. skin irritation
  4. Rashes and skin infections under the breasts
  5. Grooves on the shoulders of bra straps
  6. psychological stress such as low self-esteem or depression
  7. an inability to play or participate in a sport

CCGs also tend to have additional criteria, including weight, age, and whether someone smokes.
