I had this procedure done only right days ago…. In the last week since the procedure I have experienced excruciating abdominal cramps, hot flashes, very heavy bleeding, headaches and to top it off when I stand up it feels like my muscles are ripping. The thing that bothers me most is the fact that I had no clue until today when I got my ESSURE card in the mail with the product number on it that that was in fact the procedure that I had done. When I went to the OB I simply asked for a tubal, I signed consent for sterilization and never once before the procedure was I told what they were actually gonna do. I went in to have a tubal and in recovery they begin to tell me how they put metal in my tubes, and until today I was still unaware of the procedure because they gave me no name for it, no information on it, or even that he was in fact gonna do this procedure on me. To many people they may not see the problem but I personally think that everyone should be informed before any type of procedure takes place. I am a mother of 4 wonderful kids, I take care of my sick mom and my fiancé, I don’t have time to be sick or unhealthy simply because I was mislead….. All I wanted was a simple tubal but instead what I got was a very painful nightmare!!!!
