My story…starts October 2010 when my doctor convinced me to have the Essure placed, he made me feel like this was my best alternative, I told him I have alloy allergies, including the fact that I can not wear jewelry both him and a representative of the Essure company convinced me there is not enough nickle in the Essure for adverse effects to occur. Well here I am, after 4 years of PAIN, colonscopy, CT scans, X rays after X-Rays, medications and blood tests, ER and Prompt Care visits, 13 doctors, diagnoses of: Fibromyalgia, IBS, CFS, uveitis, anxiety and palpations due to anxiety, back pain. I had a patch test performed by an allergist, and I am allergic to nickle, cobalt and Managese. I just am so angry. So pissed that I wasted 4 years of my life, going to the doctor spending THOUSANDS of dollars I don’t have to find out I should have never had this procedure. I have barely been able to care for my children, work, and be a wife. I hate who I am today, my day is nothing more than wishing I could go back to bed, but my back and sides hurt so bad that I can not even lay in bed for long peroids of time. My hubby even bought us a new bed trying to help with the pain, but it did nothing. I wake up more tired and sore than when I went to bed. I hope that more women do their homework before getting this procedure done. Honestly, this is not something I wish on my worst emeny. I finally was able to go back to my FAVORITE OB/GYN who does not promote this product and also delivered both my children. I explained to him all the issues I was having, all the pain, all the tests, all the doctors. He is not happy. I felt like crying just screaming to let the frustration go, finally I found someone that would listen and not think that I was crazy. My doctor is contacting the company representative and is threatening publication of my case. I have surgery scheduled for removal of the devices on 12/23/14. Merry Christmas to me! He is starting from the method that they used to place and if not successful he will go in through my belly button. To all my E-Sisters! I hope you can find a doctor as compassionate as mine so that you can end your suffering and be given the chance to evict these little E-HELLS!
