I currently have the Essure coils in me and am scheduled for surgery next Friday to get my left tube as well as the coil removed. The procedure to have the coils put it was a dream, I even left for a family vacation the next morning after having it done and never thought I would be sitting here writing in this blog a whole year later.
A month or so after having the coils put in I started having strange symptoms which included: migraines, night sweats, insomnia, nausea, constant aching and pain in my lower abdomen, pain where my right kidney is, painful intercourse along with extreme bruising and swollen glands and fatigue. I went to several doctors for this and had many test run to try to find a reason and when all test came up normal I had the feeling of defeat and the thought that I must be losing my mind. I asked over and over if it could be the coils and over and over again I was told no. I am so happy to have found this page to know that I am not crazy!!
I actually found this site because I was looking for anything to help me make the decision to just have both my tubes removed at the time of my surgery next Friday for a coil that is sticking out into my uterus and after find this, I’m thinking I’d be CRAZY not to!
Thank you Ladies for all of your post and I wish each and everyone of you luck in getting your health back!
