I had the Essure procedure done on October 18, 2013 (3 months ago) and have had nothing but problems every since. They started with having constant cramps that weren’t so severe, so I let it go thinking it may be normal until I looked it up. I wish I would have researched first; I would not have had it done. After time the pain worsened to the point that all I have been saying for the past two months is ‘I want a hysterectomy, I cannot live like this’. I have a huge knot on the right lower side of my abdomen (my belly area). It hurts really bad and when I pick up something with a little weight to it, it will swell even more and my whole stomach becomes bloated to the size of 7 months into pregnany and the pain takes me to my knees. I went to the ER the other day and the doctor would not even check me out at all. After telling me my blood and urine looked good with no sign of infection, and trying to discharge me, I refused to leave until I was checked out. He came back an hour later and said I had a bladder infection and prescribed some antibiotics. I feel he lied to get me to leave, but I took the medicine anyway; I wish I would have waited on that and got checked elsewhere just to see if he did lie. I made an appointment with my ob for the 30th of this month which is now only 6 days away and hope something may be resolved. I have been trying to schedule the test you get 3 months after, but have had a hard time because my doctor was on maternity leave at the time and had a partner from another clinic do the procedure and for some reason I cannot talk to any doctor personally to find out what to do and schedule an appointment. I guess we will settle that at my appointment. I cannot believe my ob pushed the essure on me as if it were something good; did she not know what was happening to women. I am constantly feeling drained, depressed, have hot flashes, night sweats, no desire to have sex at all, take 10mg of vicodin 2-3 times a day along with tylenol 3, plus an anti-inflammatory pain med diclofenac and nothing gets rid of the pain completely, but does dim it enough for me to get up and take care of myself and baby. I cannot even sit up straight to type this up; I don’t have enough strength. I pray constantly for God to keep me alive long enough to fix this problem because I feel like I’m dying; it hurts so bad and I cannot function. I even have memory problems and forget what I’m saying or cannot think of my next word in the middle of a sentence. Not sure if it’s from the essure, but I have never in my 39 years of life experienced any of the above mentioned problems. I want to sue the company who makes this for ruining my life.
