I am writting to you from Saskatchewan Canada. I would like to share a bit of my storry with you and all ladies who are suffering through the horribble effects of the Essure implants. Back in December of 2010 i was reffered to a gyny who does sterilizations. I asked her to please tie my tubes. At wich point she told me flat out that they dont tie tubes anymore because it was to evasive of a procedure and now the implant what is call essure coils. These coils are inserted into your filopion tubes and create total scaring of the tubes in which case the egg cannot come down. Quick and painless proceddure. With no side affects!!! On January 5th 2011 i was implanted. within two weeks i started feeling yucky achy and tired. on feb 3rd I found out i was pregnant!! Rushed to hospital because of coils the fear was a tubal pregnancy. The ultra sound revealed not tubal, and had to have been two weeks pregnant already when i was implanted. The doctor in er came to talk to me and said well dear this is one for the books!! for the embrio to hang on through the implatation proceedure was nothing short of a miracle!!
In my mind… Baby was a keeper. She is now two years old. During my pregnancy i was in great discomphort on my right side. my doc said it was probably coils but ultrasound showed them to be in place and it was something i would have to tough out. I was sick for nine months nausea…all do to pregnancy they said so i continued on. After she was born, My symptoms worsened quickly. My lymph glands stared swelling all over my body. I was nausius, headaches everyday, so tired could barely get through a day, irritated, feeling of actually going crazy. told is wasnt coils and i kept saying i think it is. I was told i was crazy!! New doctor… This doctor said tested me for everything under the sun!! He promised me we would get to the bottom of it. 2 CT scans showed no cancer, blood work coming back with elevated white cells but normal everywhere else. tested for fiber mialga, and on and on it went. I went in and out of hospital cause glands were so swollen more antibiotics, And all through this i kept saying i think its the COILS!! My doctor not knowing anything about them brushed it off. Through all of this my family suffered greatly!!! My 4 children didnt have a healthy mom and my husband started to think i was a hypocondreact, and my marrige stared suffering very badly. He didnt believe me either. In March of this year a friend told me about the essure group and that she had hers removed and her skin condition had improved greatly. I went to the site and found that hundreds of women had the same symptoms as me. I took this info straight to my doctor…after reviewing it he appologized to me for having to find my own diagnosis but he now believed me. He reffered me to the same gyny who removed my friends coils…he told me it wasnt the coils causing my issues and without an examination told me that he would take them out along with my tubes uterus and cervix!! ummm ok. then he said it would be at least a year and half before he could do it!!! Excuse me are you kidding i have to live like this for that long!! Crying i left. over the next 5 months things got really bad for me i went from 147 lbs to 110 lbs. Not giving up i found another gyny closer to me willing to help me right away. He to wasnt convinced it was the coils causing all my pain and inflamation but the weight loss was a concern for him enough to do sergury on Sept 25th of this year 2013. NOW FOR THE SCARY STUFF!! When he opened me up they were bombarded a fowl smell!!! My abdomin was coated inPUSS!!! My left coil had pushed through my filopion tubed and had infected the inside of my abdomin. My left ciol had started to migrate into my uterus and embeding itself into the lining causing infection there. He did a subtotal hystorectomy, removing tubes and uterus. leaving my overias and cervix. He said a 2 hour sergury took 3 because they made damn sure all organs were clean of puss!! That is why my glands all over my body kept swelling. He said the most frustrating part was that ultrasounds showed coils to be in place along with CT scans. He also told me how very lucky i was because if i would have waited the the next 8 months for the other doctor to remove coils my blood would have been so toxic that no atibiotics would have helped me. my organs would have shut down and i would be DEAD!!! I thank god everyday for the essure problems group and the strength of all my esisters!! They have shared good times with me and brought me through the darkest times when all i wanted to do was end the pain myself. I hope and pray you get this product removed!! you are an angel for uss all and thankyou for fighting for those who cant fight for themselves.
I have been Efree for one week now and i feel AWESOME!! I have not had a headache since, nor joint pains nor nausiea, nor have my glads been swollen. |MY vision has gotten better. I havent had a panic attack since, And i honestly feel more clear headed and happier. My body still needs to detox the nickle out and other toxins my doc says but its a damn good start.
ALL the best in your efforts to save women from this absolutley evil product. And by the way HAVE A BLAST ON THE DOCTORS!!! Cant wait to see it.
Your friend, Carly Harris
