I had my fourth child on July 3 2012 . After having him the doctor set me up to have the Essure procedure because my family was complete. After I had the procedure done in October I have felt very sick that I bled for nearly 8 months straight. There was a lot of pain with it in my abdominal area. Since then I have been experiencing new symptoms like really bad headaches, congestion, dizziness like I’m going to faint blood, sugar dropping, nausea, and diarrhea.
I have gained a tremendous amount of weight. I wake up every single morning feeling like I have the flu that just hurt all over. I have absolutely no energy. I went from drinking 3 to 12 cup pots of coffee a day to 6 or seven energy drinks a day. I had niacin capsule, garlic capsule, and a multivitamin for women just to make it through a day to be able to work and still take care of my family. I also have numbness and tingling all over my body.
I am allergic to nickel but every time I have spoke to my doctor, he does not want to take me seriously. I was not aware when I had the procedure done that it had nickel in it. My vision is also getting worse. I have been told the Essure is non-removable. I was told that it can be removed but it’s very difficult as you need to have hysterectomy. I hear there are no hospitals in our state that do the removal. I have no insurance to cover it. I feel that my body is being poisoned slowly.
