I had the essure procedure done several years ago. I have always gotten headaches and had odd discomfort in my abdomen so I typically ignore anything because the Dr’s usually tell me it’s in my head. My frustration level with Dr’s just went through the roof today. I went to a chiropractor on Monday who did x-rays and immediately asked me if I had an IUD when the x-ray of my lower abdomen and hips popped up on the screen, I said no I had the essure which placed tubes into my fallopian tubes to cause scar tissue and there for sterilized me. He looked at me and told me to call my Gynie because these were in his words ‘nowhere near my fallopian tubes’ by the image on the screen one looked like it was sitting in the middle of my lower abdomen near where the zipper on my jeans was and the other was just to the left of where the tube would be. I was standing straight on to the x-ray machine not sideways so there was no mistaking the angle. I called my doctor on Tuesday morning and received a call back today. Talk about making someone feel stupid and like I had no clue what I was saying. He told me there was NO way that they would be able to be seen on the x-ray and that I would just have to have the test to see that they were working to determine if they had blocked my tubes and that I wasn’t pregnant so I shouldn’t worry. If I had known a quarter of the possible issues of this procedure prior to having it done I would have opted for a tubal ligation and not have some foreign object put into my body. I am so beyond frustrated and have no idea what to do next.
