Well it started with LIES. I was told it was SAFE and better than getting my tubes tied. Then they said it was so safe that it would be done in the doctors office, but that wasn’t true either. I was sent to an operation floor where I was etherized, SO KNOW TELING WHAT ELSE THEY DID TO ME. After the ESSURE PROCEEDURE I experienced horrific CRAMPS, VOMITTING and BLEEDING. When I called they continued to tell me this was NORMAL yet the brochure and doctor told me differently. When the bleeding stopped SEVERAL weeks later, the BACK PAIN started. It was SO EXCRUCIATING. I had problems sitting, standing, laying, walking, just pretty much living. I STILL GET THE HORRIBLE BACK PAIN FROM TIME TO TIME. Then the RASH. I had a rash that didn’t go away for a long while, but continually returned. I still get the HEADACHES not always as bad as they were in the beginning, but not sure if I’m becoming accustomed to the pain. The BLOATING and WEIGHT GAIN on my STOMACH I hate because I’ve never had a stomach. I have taken home pregnancy tests and was PREGNANT twice. I thought the tests were wrong until the TWO MISCARRIAGES that were VERY VERY PAINFUL. The CONSTANT DISCHARGE makes me feel dirty even though they claimed it would go away, but over 4 years later SURPRISE it’s still there.
I WOULD NOT SUGGEST THIS PROCEEDURE TO ANY WOMAN!!!!!!!
For those who have had any of these tragedies after the ESSURE, let’s help ERIN stop this monsterous proceedure.
Thank you for caring Erin and God Bless
