In August of 2011 I found out I was pregnant with my third child, 2 years after my husband had a vasectomy. I spoke with my doctor about tubal ligation and that is when she sold me on essure, she said it was an in office procedure with no side effects and I would be up and moving the same day. In April 2012 I gave birth to my little girl and in June 2012 I got my essure placed. It was done in office and I was given some pain pills to take 30 min in advance. The placement went ok, she had some problems with one of my tubes but I was done in 30 min. I started bleeding immediately after. In September 2012 I went in for the x-ray to check placement, I told my doctor that I was still bleeding every day since plancement. She put me on the pill and we found out the coil in my left tube had not placed properly and so I went back in Dec ’12 for another x-ray. My bleeding never stopped and the left tube was still open. My doctor asked if I wanted another coil implanted or if I just wanted to try a normal tubal. I told her I wanted a normal tubal ligation and for her to remove the coils. In February of 2013 I had a tubal done and an ablation to stop the bleeding. She never removed the coils and told me they could not locate the one that was supposed to be on my left side but not to worry because they are microscopic in size and would not cause any damage. For the next 6 months I had horrible cramps and back pain but my bleeding had stopped. I had multiple x-rays and CT Scans done to try and find the problme. In Sept ’12 my doctor agreed to remove what was left of my fallopian tubes and the coils. After my surgery my husband was told that the coil in my right fallopian tube was removed with no issues and the one that was supposed to be in my left had migrated to my uterus and when my dr tried to remove it, it broke into pieces but she removed as much as she could. I was told the same thing at my 6 week check up. I was still having pain and didn’t feel comfortable knowing there was fragments left in my uterus so I went for a second opinion. My new dr pulled up the operation reports and it stated that the left coil was never found so there was no attempted removal, I was scheduled for surgery one month later and I had a hysterectomy in January 2014, I am currently 28 yrs old. The ‘missing’ coil was found embedded in my uterus and was fully intact. So after finding out my original dr lied to me I got copies of my medical records from her office. Once I looked through them I noticed there were pages missing here and there. Anyways since my hysterectomy in January, I have been completely pain free for the last 6 months.
