I had the essure done for 1 year now and I have been having so many problems with it. At first I was going to do the old fashion get my tubes tied deal, but then the nurse who was talking to me, told me about essure. I was happy because I would have had to wait 6 months to get my tubes tied because the doctor that was going to do the surgery was going on vacation. And I was not going to wait that long so I asked her to go ahead and get me in this place so I can get it. Well a month goes by and finally I get the essure done. Well of course you are awake for this which made me nervous anyway, then he started doing his ‘thing’ and after I was hurting so bad, even after the procedure was done I was hurting. He had me sit in this room with my legs proped up and he let me watch a little tv for an hour even then I was hurting. Then a couple of hours go by and I am still hurting of course I call them and they said ‘oh well you should’nt be’ and I say ‘uh yeah I am’ then they proceed to tell me that I need to just take some advil and go to bed, so I did. Couple months later after everything seemed fine then I started gaining weight and feeling exhausted without me doing anything. So I go to my doctor and he done a couple tests on me and come to find out I have Hypothyroidism, Fybromyalgia. Not to mention I didn’t have a period for 6 to 7 months and finally when I did it was so painful that I couldn’t do anything. Now I can’t sleep well at night, I can’t really have sex because of the pain, My body hurts all the time. And I don’t know what to do about it so I’m just going to have to suffer thru this! Thank you for letting me tell my story!
