I greatfully appreciate the opportunity to write you my story because I see you actually care when no one else does. Thank you. I am a 43 year old woman that has 6 beautiful children. I am done creating my lovely family and turned to my GYN for an option to make it permanant. I was sold the Essure procedure as a very quick, easy, effective, no side effects, and a no problem solution. I had the procedure done on October 31st 2012. During the procedure, the doctor lost one of the coils inside me. It was later found that it shot up far in my fallopian tubes and I was told that one of the coils broke apart inside my fallopian tube. Since the procedure, I have had countless problems. I no longer get my periods but I do bleed off and on for no reason. I have excruciating pain on my right and left side where the colis are located. I suffer terrible pelvic pain. I have always been a very skinny person and after the procedure I have gained 30 pounds. I have always had perfect vision but since the procedure I have had significant eye sight problems. I have extreme stomach bloating, headaches and very strangs skin rashes. I had a very healthy body before this procedure. I never had any significant health problems my whole life and now I feel that these coils have ravaged my once very healthy body. I just want these Essure coils out of me and I want my body to be just put back exactly the way that it was before I got this procedure done. Unfortunately, the doctor that did the procedure doesn’t want to hear my complains and i have called her many times without a call back. I am told that health insurance does not cover the removal of Essure coils. After a lot of research, I have found that there are not many doctors that remove Essure colis. I am willing to fly to the state where I have found a doctor who does this surgery but I will have to pay $7000 for the surgery. I am so frustrated that even though I have so many complications and such severe pain that insurance will not cover the surgery. It seems that no one believes me and no one believes that I have severe medical problems and pain due to the Essure coils. I just want someone to believe me. I want these things OUT of my body. I want my body put back exactly as it was. I hope my story helps someone. I hope telling my story helps me find a solution to get these things out of me.
Very Best Regards,
