I am suffering from the complications of Essure. Oct. 2008 I have the Essure procedure done. For 2 years I complained to my doctor(s) about severe pain. I knew something was wrong. In and out of the GYN office and ER trying to be heard and get help. I even questioned the Essure. I was ignored by many. And treated as if I was crazy. I changed to a different GYN office. At the new office they were not convinced that something was wrong. I was frustrated!! July 2010 I went back to the Dr. in severe pain once again. I was sent to the hospital and received many bags of antibiotics and went through ultrasounds/scans. Dr. came in and told me she was sending me home she couldn’t find anything wrong. I just broke down in tears. No one was listening. I told her something was wrong! She said all I could do at this point is a laparoscopy. I said lets do it! Few hours later I was wheeled back. When I woke I was back in my room and the Dr. came in sat down on the edge of the bed and placed her hand on my hand. She said ‘Honey, I am so sorry I really believed you were here for pain meds. I am in complete shock of what I have found.’ She pulls out pictures and begins to show me and explain. Essure Coil that was placed in my left tube ripped out completely destroying the tube. The coils have ‘swam’ around before planting themselves one on my uterus and the other on my colon. The scarring/damage that they caused were horrendous and devastating. After I was discharged I began to be in severe pain once again. My GYN sent me to a GI specialist to have my colon checked. After my colonoscopy in Dec. 2010 I was told that the coils that had been removed have caused my small intestines to be inflamed as well as my colon. It is now Nov. 2013 and I still suffer from severe pain to this day. My drs. have told me there was no more they could do for me. The scarring is so severe and was permanent and I would have to live with the pain the rest of my life. Even after my husband and I have sex for days after I will even double over in pain. Im angry!! Im so upset that for so long I begged for help and NO ONE would listen!! Im angry that I trusted this procedure and it has caused me permanent pain. I had a hysterectomy Oct. 2012 due to a fibroid tumor on my uterus. They hoped then that maybe some of the pain would ease off. But unfortunately it has not. I have read so many stories about women and there experiences with this Essure and it is heartbreaking! I don’t want anyone else to go through this!! I want my story to be heard……to hopefully prevent this from happening to someone else. And I pray that when patients ask for help Doctors will listen!
