hi yall Joyce Haitz im a army wife of three kids..in 2011 I went to my obgyn CAPTAIN FLAHRETTY at fort Campbell kentucky after my last child was born 2010 seeking advice on a more permanent form of birth control..Essure was the IT thing out aparently cause the docs there pushed ESSURE like was the only option! prior to the procedure date i talked with my obgyn concerning my allergy sensititivity to NICKEL and other metals…She assured me i would have no issues…I proceded to have the procedure in late march 2011.. June 2011 was my three month checkup after procedure and the dye test..Of course its my luck i get the room full of interns!!…HAHA But after three kids ya cant be shy! the dye moved through albeit semi slowly but it moved…i had no pain during the dye test..a month after the dye test is when the horribleness started…CONSTANT pelvic pain..bloating in my belly and my periods were NOT regular anymore! I saw my obgyn and she wrote me off as one of those women who complains…Ive had FIVE kids one was given up for adoption also i had a misscarriage with one at 12 weeks…i KNOW Pain!..So i continued to suffer..a month or two during summer of 2011 i was in such severe pain oour friends came over from the next town to watch my kids and made me go to the emerency room!! .BTW my Husband was deployed this whole time! the ER visits happened a few times after same results i must be making stuff up cause they couldnt see anything wrong!! Well i heard of a specialist in ESSURE removal in Nashville TN..Dr AMANDA YUNKER …i started to talk with other ladies online aparently suffering similarlybut we were all told we were …that ESSURE WAS COMPLETELY SAFE…..well i couldnt take pain anylonger…I saw the specialist in Nashville TN Vanderbuilt womens center Dr AMANDA YUNKER..She was the first person to take me seriously!!! She removed my ESSURE coils while also having to remove the majority of each of my fallopian tubes and burned the ends…that was late 2011 after she removed em Dr YUNKER showed me pics of removal they caused allergic reaction inside of my tubes!…its now June 2014..i have not had regular menstration since i had ESSURE coils placed.I can NO LONGER wear any metal Jewelry without a reacction!…Ive gained over 20 pounds!!….I have seen multiple doctors yet again and nobody can help me my hormone levels come up normal on lab tests…and yet again im left to feel like the crazy one….i hope yall get help you deserve! thanks for your time!
