I had my son in Aug of 2010 with a ermergency c-section. I almost died. My doctor told me that if I was to get pregnant again I would die. In October she convinced me that essure was the best thing for me since I had a bad healing experience with my c-section. I trusted her. So I had it done. She put me under for it cause she said it could be painful. And from the moment I woke up I was In pain. A week later I went back and told her that I was in pain on mostly my right side constantly. She just gave me a prescription for Motrin. I went in for my 3 months later for the dye xray test. It was so painful. I almost started crying. She new I was in so much pain. This pain would not go away. Now I had heavy periods before but now I started bleeding heavier. I never had cysts before. Started getting them. They would burst. One year after getting them I went in and told her I’m in so much pain I think it’s the essure. She said no its not that. She did a ultra sound said I had a lot of cysts and drew a picture of how many and she wanted to do exploratory surgery to find out what was causing all the pain. My sex life was hurting cause it hurt (found out later my boyfriend and father of my children started cheating on me.) we had always had a high active sex life until I got essure. She did the surgery found a big beign tumor. And said the essure was in the right place and one of them were up A little high but was fine. I was in constant pain went to see her many times. So I was on Facebook one day and saw on my local news about essure problems. I looked it up and started seeing all my symptoms one after another. I called and made a apointment. 3 years after I had it. She still said it was not essure. So she did another exployatory surgery. Found out I had pre cancer and she was going to do a complete hysterectomy. she was due to have her baby soon and I got in as soon as I could and she did the surgery on Feb 12th 2014. I have been pain free since getting that out of me in that area that I was having for everyday for a little over 3 years. I have 2 older children that know I was always doing things with them and I stopped and it hurt me and it hurt them. I have finally gotten to do things that moms do with their kids. Essure ruined my life for 3 1/2 years. Took so much from ME!
