I had the essure procedure. I thought everything was going okay for my right tube, but then when my doctor inserted the coil in my left side it took him a long time and I was in immense pain. I wasn’t sure what was going on. Finally after I couldn’t stand anymore he stopped. He told me the procedure didn’t go well and that he would have to contact the company that makes the device. He didn’t explain anything else and left the room. It was a week before I found out that what was suppose to release the coil into my tube had broke off in my tube and my doctor was trying to retrieve it. I had two girls naturally and never shed a tear, but this procedure was ten times more painful. After that every time I would go to the doctor I would have panic attacks and pass out. It took me almost a year before the panic attacks at the doctors offices would go away. I went to a different doctor and he put the contrast in me to see where the coils were placed. The right one looked like it was in place while he couldn’t even find anything in my left tube. We decided the best thing would be for him to go in and remove the coils and tie my tubes. The new doctor was amazed after he performed surgery on me. The coil that I thought was in correctly had actually ripped my tube and was lying behind it. The left side had broken into pieces and part of it was in my abdomen. Instead of doing a regular procedure with one incesion he had to make three incisions to remove the coils. I contacted two lawyers and both told me that I would be wasting my time and money because of a new law in West Virginia that had been passed. I didn’t want this to happen to any other woman after all of the trauma that I had went through. I hope this site makes a difference.
