I had the essure procedure in March of 2013. The dr could only place one side, said there was too much ‘fluff’ in the way of the other side to see well enough to insert. I took more hormones and came back in a week to have the other side inserted. Nearly immediately after the second one was placed I started having a dull back ache almost 100% of the time. It would come and go and at times bring tears to my eyes and make it hard to concentrate. One day about a month after the procedures I was cramping so bad and I felt a gush of blood at work. I went in the bathroom and one of the coils was hanging out of me. I kept it in toilet tissue and immediately called my dr. The nurse told me that it wasn’t possible, that there’s no way that could happen. I explained to her that it is possible and I’m holding it in my hand. She asked me to come up there immediately. There was no concern for me, just ‘give me the coil.’ I said no way, not before I take pictures of it to prove that I did have it in my hand at some point (Should I have ever been able to touch this thing? I think not.) We discussed what my options were since I said I did not want another essure procedure. She did a tubal and ablation in June. I’m still having my back aches but now only on my left side. I think the right coil is the one that fell out and I truly believe the left one is still implanted but my body either is rejecting the foreign object or it’s placed incorrectly. I asked my doctor to look for the other coil and remove it during my tubal but she said she couldn’t see it. Where is it? Shouldn’t it be in a tube that was tied? Is that why my pain on the left side is more intense now? The pain is so intense now it wakes me from sleeping. I spoke with my doctor again at my annual exam in October 2013 and told her the pain is still there. She said she thinks it’s a back issue like maybe a pinched nerve. I have a tough time believing that I coincidentally pinched a nerve on the same day I had the essure procedure. Today the pain is so intense I emailed her and told her something had to be done. She wants to do a pelvic ultrasound to look at the tubes but also would like to look at the kidneys to make sure I don’t have kidney stones. At this point I hope it is kidney stones because I won’t have to convince her to help me, but I have a feeling it isn’t. I know I should just seek help from another doctor but I’d have to start at square one with another doctor. Initial visits and exams. Let’s try meditation, blah blah blah…like it’s in my head. I hurt. Does anyone know of a doctor in the Oklahoma City area that believes essure is bad and will help me? If not okc, then Seattle/Tacoma since I’m moving there in a month.
