In 2003 I was convinced by my doctor to get the essure. I do not think I had enough time to realize that it is permanent and things change in people’s lives and you might not always feel the same way about having more children. I got divorced in 2007 and met a wonderful man and always regretted my decision.
Recently I have regretted the decision even more. I started having pain in my right side a month ago. I went to the er when the pain started and was giving blood test and ct scan for a appendicitis. Everything was normal except my appendix was slightly enlarged. I had no fever and no vomiting. The surgeon came in and said we are scheduling surgery tonight to remove your appendix. I was in so much pain and I assumed the doctor knew what he was doing… I was in the hospital with severe pain. I came home and the pain never went away. I went to the er because I was scared I had a infection or something. They did another ct and ultrasound. Again everything was normal. I made a appointment with my primary care doctor and he was blown away they removed my appendix with no indication that was the problem. He thinks the pain is caused from the essure and has referred me to a gynocologist whom I will see on January 13. Since the surgery my period was 8 days late and then only lasted a day. I started gaining weight in my stomach after the essure was put in and nothing I do makes it better. Also I read my op report after the surgery and it stated I have a lot of scar tissue in my abdomen and adhesions on my liver. I asked the nursed about this and she said it was probably from a previous surgery I had. I have not had abdominal surgery in the past. I just pray the doctor I see on the 13th will agree my problem is from essure and I can have theses terrible things removed from my body.
