Hello my name is Amanda I am 26 years old with 4 beautiful children and an amazing husband. I had my Essure procedure done on May 21st, 2014. Since that day I have had sever lower back pain and abdominal pain every single day. I have also been bleeding since my procedure. I have gone to my doctors ( which I have seen two different doctors now) and they have basically ruled it out to be other things such as a UTI which they wrote me a antibiotic for it without even checking my urine. I struggle to wake up and go to work and do my daily mommy duties. I decided to get the Essure because my doctor sold it to me as its fast and one day recovery. Which was perfect for me because I needed to go back to work since I just came back to work from maternity leave. There’s days where I can’t even pick up my 8 month old baby. It’s heartbreaking and it’s ruining my marriage. I have waited 2 months to finally be seen by a back and spine specialist which was suggested by my GYN (FINALLY) to rule out that I do not have any back issues. Once I go this Friday to the back specialist and they tell me that there is nothing wrong with my back I am forced to have a partial hysterectomy. I cannot stress this enough to everyone that is even thinking about getting this to please do your research because I really wish I had. All I want is my life back!!!
