My name is Megan,
After I had my last daughter on April 29th 2012 I asked about getting my tubes tied. I was advised because I have a blood disorder Vonwilderbrands I should probably try to do another type of birth control. They advised me to go to Stephanie Ring to have a procedure done in her office. She told me on the first visit everything about doing the procedure and what I have to do to have it done. I had a complete work up. She said that my tubes seem great and ready to put the Essure in. I came back with my mother took the pain pill as advised. What was supposed to be a 15 minute procedure at 7:15 am didn’t end until right after 11 am. She had problems getting the left one in. She backed it in and out stopped, gave me new pain drugs because the others wore off. Then proceeded to put the left one in. She finally said it was in. A week later I told her that I was having horrible pains. She said it was most likely because my tube was spasming. I said ok. I went to work a few weeks after this and nearly passed out from the pain when I bent down. I went to the x-ray to do the test to see if they were blocked. The radialogist told me that the left one looked like it was floating off into no where. I asked my doctor about it she said I was fine and the radiologist is not to be talking to me about it. But she wanted me to go and have another test done. So I did, same radiologist, I told her sorry for getting her into trouble, she advised I go to another doctor because mine was lying to me. I said ok than. Before I had that chance that weekend before Thanksgiving I woke up in the middle of the night in such bad pain I couldn’t walk. They did an ultrasound and found that my tube not only was infected, but ripped open. I had been walking around for 6 months in pain becuase my doctor didn’t want to admit to what she had done. She ended up having me come to her the following week. to see her she made me wait another 2 weeks before I finally got to have the surgery. Not only did it rip through the side of my tube it wrap up and down under my pelvis. Every time I bent down and back up I was ripping more and more. She took both my tubes. I still have horrible pain when I stretch too hard. This is not something that I would ever wish on someone. It would have been better to risk the blood disorder. I kept and documented everything through out this horrible process and and I even have the radiologists name and phone number. I was put through the most aggonizing pain being told I was basically being a baby and that there aren’t these kinds of risks involved. There are and this product should be distroyed!
