On June 12,2013 my life was ruined and forever changed. Before this day I was a bubbly, outgoing, positive woman, now I am not at all who I used to be. I ha been blessed with two gorgeous boys and decided that was all in the world I needed. My fiancé and I decided that getting my tubes tied was the way to go. I went to my doctor who attempted to put the Essure implant on me like a car salesman trying to meet a quota. I said I’d think about it and ultimately after research decided against it. I signed consent for my tubes to be burned and went in for surgery June 12, 2013 the day I’ll never forget, the day my life was turned upside down and never to be the same again. When I woke up from my surgery (mind you Drs try to sell Essure with it being an in office procedure with no need for a surgery) I was told my Essure was in place. Still sleepy from the anesthesia I was so confused. I said no Essure burn my tubes. My doctor informed me that they had given me the Essure implant. The next week was a blur that evening I had a horrible migraine I assumed was from the anesthesia. June 13 was a Monday by that Friday I was back in surgery and having my tubes burned. The Essure was to be removed and it wasn’t. I still have that same migraine. Almost two years later I’m still nauseous, still have cramping pain worse than childbirth. This procedure wasn’t my choice, my constant pain and anxiety wasn’t my choice. In two years I have missed many events for my children, work, and become depressed, miserable, and lazy. I am not even a candidate for this device I have severe Crohn’s disease and fibromyalgia. Both of which used to be manageable. My insurance didn’t cover this device either. This should have never happened to me. Ive spent hours doing research and suffer from every side effect attached to it. This product shouldn’t be on the market or should come with a warning as to how horrible it really is. Now I’m scheduled to have my tubes removed in hopes that once the device is gone the side effects will go with it. It took a year and a half and four doctors to find one who wouldn’t defend the product. It took 4 doctors to find one who would listen. no one should have to live like this even if they signed the consent. I’m hoping that one day my life will be normal again I’m hoping to wake up one morning without a migraine nausea and cramps. All I have left is hope. With each miserable day even my hope is beginning to fade. I feel for the woman who are stuck with this horrible device it ruins lives takes outgoing charismatic woman and turns them into a bare resemblance of their former selves. I’ll do anything possible to spread the word and have this product removed from the market. It is terrible we have to live this way because we chose not to have anymore children.
