I was having trouble with bleeding, heavy period one week then lighter or spotting for 2 more weeks each month. My gynocologist suggested an abaltion procedure for my uterus, to stop with problem without hysterectomy, as I was only 41. But to do the ablation, I needed to be sterilized as I was still of child bearing age. My doctor recommended the Essure procedure, as less invasive and could be done at the same time as the ablation. The whole thing was a mess. Ablation consists some method of burning or freezing away the endometrial lining of the uterus. In my case, they used hot liquids, and because of the shape of my anatomy, burned me severely, so I was in terrible pain for many days after the supposedly painless procedure. Then a couple of weeks later, as the burns healed, I began to have severe internal pain, similar to the endometriosis that the ablation was supposed to help. I called the doctor, who attempted to blow me off as pain medicine seeking. I said I didn’t like pain meds, but was in pain. They then said that your first period after the ablation could be painful (never mentioned that before) but gave my Cipro just in case I had a bladder infection. I felt better for about a month. Then the internal pain started again. It was so bad I was doubled over. I went to the emergency room, different hospital than where I had had the procedures done, they did a ct scan for apendicitis, determined it was not that and sent me home, telling me to follow up with gynocologist. I saw him the next day, showed him ct scan, which he said showed infected ovaries. He first sent me home with more antibiotics, but then called me back to go into hospital for iv antibiotics. Those didn’t help ovaries, so had to have an emergency hysterectomy. Final result was ovaries were infected with MRSA from Essure implants. So much for not having a hysterectomy. I never did sue as I was moving from Florida to Massachusetts at the time and felt I could not handle long distance lawsuit.
