Essure…. Be sure….
I have had major medical problems many as some of my essure sisters. I had to carry an Eppi pen for months because my body would swell really bad and even my throat. The doctors said they didn’t know why??? So I was on steroids for couple of weeks and every time I stopped them I would start with the random swelling. I was told by the hospital that all of my issues from day one where not related . How so??? Hot flashs, stabbing knife like pain that drops you to the floor, no period but fever and fluish same time every month. So my family doctor sent me for an ultrasound and sure enough …. One spring was not found. Because the doctor who put them in wouldn’t give me the time of day after calling and calling just to get checked. And a year later when I really started to deteriorate I called Cooper Hospital Nj. After tests and exploratory surgery in April. I went in with the most confident doctor I have ever met in my life. Did a consult with him and he was very confident that he could help me and I was more than grateful. Every other doctor /hospital would not take me. I went to an also wonderful allergist and had metal testing. She contacted essure and tested me against all the ingredients. ( some which are not listed on brochure). Sure enough…. Maganese is an element in essure and I’m allergic. So after all testing I went to Dr.M ( not sure if I can say his name online) office in mt laurel nj, Cooper affiliate. He removed both of my tubes ( which were badly scarred and found the list spring embedded in uterus and removed it all laparoscopicly. I had this done in and out same day. One week ago today! I’m feeling better and healing quickly. This wonderful man is really willing and very knowledgable with all pelvic issues. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs these springs out immediately. Also… Bayer did contact me after my allergist called them for the ingredients. A woman asked me all kinds of questions….I broke down and reviewed the series of events I have been thru from essure. She said I’m so sorry …. I asked her does she feel confident with her company and its policy or proceedure s? Than asked if it were her what could I do for her….she said … Idk?? I said you can do two things for me… She said ok. One, I want to live to see my four children graduate high school and tell your company to stop inserting poison and treating individuals like numbers….. We are all woman with children and families to care for. She said I will tell them. I told her to call me back if they want to hear more details or cover all medical costs. So that was that. They never called again…. Poor woman was dumbfounded and lost for words. I apologized for my breakdown. That’s it for now! Hope is out there… Keep your head up!
