I had this procedure done in 2007 and had problems from day one. The coil that was placed in my right fallopian tube was rejected right away during the procedure and had to be removed and a replacement used. I went to my family doctor and the OB/GYN who put the implant in several times over the next 2 years because of pain from the implant. Of course the Doctor who put the device in would not admit the pain I was having had anything to do with the implants. I had a colonoscopy and 2 CT scans done and finally got an answer that it had migrated. But where? No one seemed to be able to answer that. Finally I went to a different GYN and told him to take it out! I would not take NO for an answer. During surgery he could not find the right implant, but thankfully took the time to look for it and found it had attached itself to my small intestine. Luckily it hadn’t punctured through but it still had to be removed from the outer layer.
I still have pain issues almost everyday! It’s like if you always had a headache that never went away. Some days it’s just a dull ache and some days it’s horrible and it’s all you can do to function. I was told it’s probably scar tissue and I will just have to live with it or get another surgery. No thanks. I had a bad reaction to the gas they give you for laproscopic surgery, I thought I was having a massive heart attack for days! I have been getting accupuncture and it seems to help sometimes. This procedure has cost me part of my life and a lot of money in medical bills. I wish I would have never gotten this procedure done.
