I had essure done in Sept. 2011. Three months after I started noticing ‘strange changes’ in my body. Inflammation, pelvic swelling (I look like im 3 months pregnant) loss of periods, extreme joint pain in back, hips and knees. Inability to fight off infections, hair loss, mouth sores, bladder infections, painful intercourse 5-10 lb weight gain. Then anxiety, deppression & fear of dying followed. My relationship with my husband and children suffers.
I went to so many doctors to find out what is wrong with me that I cant keep track. They all thought I was a hypocondriac… until my chiropractor, Dr. Walsh questioned the coils when she looked on my xrays…. It was then we both started digging deeper. I looked online and read all the storie sof other women suffering just like me!! I started to cry because It then dawned on me this could be the answer to my suffering of 2.5 years! I am 39 years old and I was moving around like a 80 years old.
I am now looking into removal asap… hopefully next week. Oh – forgot to mention I have a severe allergic reaction to nickle… no wonder my body feels like I have been poisioned!
I cannot wait to have them removed, but I fear that I will need a hystorectomy. But if that is my choice then so be it. I just want my life back.
