Hello, My name is Cynthia, I decided to have the essure procedure done November 2012 after giving birth to my youngest daughter who is now 19mos. My husband and I both have grown children and decided we would like to have one together. I spoke with my doctor about it and we felt it was a less evasive procedure than getting a tubal ligation. I read all the literature about it and even looked it up on the internet, or so I thought. I did not find many negative things about this procedure at that time. Shortly after having the procedure I experienced sever cramping, bleeding and bloating but I figured maybe it was from just having a baby. After all I was 42 having a baby. Then I started having sharp pains in my hip and legs nothing at all like sciatic pain. Pain so bad I would wake up crying and my husband would take me to the doctor and they would just tell me it was in my head or it was a type of sciatic. So now a year after the procedure despite trying to lose weight I still look like I’m 6 mos pregnant and continue to experience the sever cramping, leg spasms, and very heavy menstrual cycles. Just recently I went to the doctor trying to figure out why I was feeling tired, lack of appetite, bloating, heavy periods and cramping and with an ultra sound they found out that one of the coil came out of place and is in my uterus. I get so sick of doctors telling me that I don’t understand my body by telling me it’s all in my head that I try not to complain and I just live with what I feel on a daily basis, because I don’t want to deal with the doctors. I go on almost a daily basis not feeling good, always fatigued, headaches, body pains, stomach upset, can’t sleep, I fake my way through it until I can’t. Today I was told I would need to have a hysterectomy to rectify the situation and that was my only option. I would just like this to be over however I did not think I would have to have a hysterectomy.
