Apparently up to 40,000 women in the UK are waiting anxiously this morning - for the government to announce whether there is a serious health risk from breast implants.
Now the vast majority of women who have paid to have a 'boob job' will have done so for purely cosmetic reasons - not because of anything to do with improving their health.
In which case they would have cheerfully paid for the treatment themsleves - and at the time they would have been warned of the risks of having invasive surgery - putting something unnatural into your body that otherwise shouldn't be there.
But they went ahead and had the work done nonetheless.
So while I can understand people's anxiety - what I don't get is the campaign that's underway to have these implants taken out at public expense.
Except for women who may have had work done for sensible and obvious medical reasons - on the advice of a doctor.
In fact I find it quite offensive that seemingly perfectly intelligent women are wheeled out before the TV cameras - to say they can't pay to correct a problem - when they were quite happy to pay for the initial surgery in the first place.
If the government and NHS were to step in and offer to pay - then everyone affected will just keep their hands in their pockets - or purses.
So the solution is for people to use the same ingenuity which paid for the treatment originally - such as using savings, foregoing a holiday, or taking out a loan - to correct any real or perceived problems now.
