I’ve had two beautiful daughters. one was born 1/26/02. she is my life. The second baby I had for my cousin since she was unable to have a baby. She was born 10/26/04. soon after giving birth I moved from Las Vegas to New England. I decided to start dating soon after moving here. some how I was getting pregnant on BC pills. decided to ask my obgyn about any other options. I wanted an IUD. Changed obgyns to Bedford womens center in Bedford, Nh. Asked her about IUD, istantly she was telling me about Essure. I feel I was bullied into it. Every idea for Bc I threw at her she shot down. Nothing was right for me apparently. How would she even know? She made this Essure sound like a gift from god! I kept saying no, I don’t want any foreign objects in my body. She was persistant. I finally caved.
2006 I had the procedure done. Let me just tell you I would rather give birth to ten thousand babies at once then to feel that again! I had no epidural when I gave birth to my babies and that wasn’t as bad as this! I refused any meds since that is what I do. I like my body to be free of any poison.. Unfortuneately I didn’t know she was putting poison into my body. Was not told about any nickel being a part of the coils. Did not have a nickel allergy test. instantly after procedure I was having intestine problems. saw two weird lumps on my abdomen. called the Dr she said oh its prob bc you are constipated, this is normal and will go away eventually. Come to find out those two lumps are my swollen fallopian tubes. ( I am extremely skinny 117 lbs 5 ‘9′) fast forward.. starting two years after the procedure I started projectile vommiting with no nausea at all. its fun to vomit like that while driving on the highway in the fast lane! My symptoms are 3 pages long but I will list the worst ones: severe abdominal pain, pass out, black spots infront of my eyes, dizzy/spinning spells, shooting pains thru abdomen down my legs, rashes and hives, fever, metal taste in my mouth, and the list gos on. all symptoms fo Cronhn’s disease. Every other night my abdomen bloats and I look 7 mo pregnant. heavy bleeding, and blood clots, 3 misscarriages. severe migraines. Some times the pain in my abdomen, and body is so bad I stay in bed all day, and wish death upon myself.
Several trips to ER with several diff diagnoses that make no sense at all. Several colonoscopies with no diagnosis just that I have severe inflammation. Isn’t that what Crohn’s disease is? YEA! Ct scans for brain tumor. was told I have two slipped disks in my back pinching a nerve and thats why my left leg gos numb, and I can’t feel my toes, and have shooting pains down my thigh. They can’t tell me why I get dizzy and fall. was checked for Vertigo, NOPE NOT that! I KNOW ITS ALL ESSURE! Had an xray, they say that one of the coils in in my uterus, and one is in my bowels. oh! That’s why i have intestine issues! why didn;t they see that with my colonoscopies?
I am so happy that I don’t have some of the more severe medical issues that all these other women have, My heart gos out to those who suffer worse than me with those more severe issues.
I don’t want any financial gain, I just want this CRAP out of me!! PLEASE tell me there is a way without it costing me 7,500… I have saved 2,000 in three weeks working my butt off at work. working is really hard to do since I feel so sick all the time. please someone tell me how to get my surgery without dishing out that money that I don’t have. My personal Email firstname.lastname@example.org. my phone number 603 497 7300. please contact me if you know any way to get these poisonous coils out of my body!
