Very stressing day

Feb 29, 2016 1:05 PM

So the FDA has made its decision on the Essure and they are keeping it on the market, and let me tell you when I read that my heart sank and now my stomach is turned inside out and I think I am living in this bathroom all day. I was Praying they would take it off the market so no more women need to go through what 25+ thousand are going through now ,(me included). While typing this I did get a bit of good news NO CANCER!! BUT I do have carmic or chronic it was gargaled endometriosis, what ever that is. They are calling in medications for me to start taking today and we will see what the ultrasound has to say on the 10th when I go back.

Moparmom I am so happy for the good news you got that you do NOT have cancer. All of our prayers have been heard. I am so sorry that you are going though what you are with the Essure. I wish there was something I could do to make it better. I hope the medicine they are giving you for the endometriosis is successful. Sending you much love and {{{Hugs}}} πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

Mopar, I'm so glad to hear that it's not cancer. If you have any questions on the endometriosis, my email is amandamiddleton98@gmail.com. I would be happy to help if I can. Please don't hesitate to ask.

What is Essure? Wonderful news that you don't have cancer!

Feb 29, 2016 2:54 PM

Gibber, essure is a permanent form of birth control that is inserted into both Fallopian tubes by an obgyn without the need for surgery I think.

Feb 29, 2016 3:10 PM

Oh okay. It sounds it's a bad thing?

Feb 29, 2016 3:20 PM

I was put under Anastasia and rolled into an OR, but their was no cutting involved, the problems didn't show up till a couple years later when the metal's from the coils started producing fibroids and causing auto immune disease and many other issues, several that I suffer from and one unknown at the moment. Women have gotten pregnant and lost babies due to miscarriage and some end up delivering and the baby dies 10 days later because of health issues caused by the Essure. I dodged the cancer bullet and I am Thanking the Good Lord above, but I still have to get the coils out to keep from getting worse and some doctors won't hear of it because they are getting kick backs from the company, so I have to be my own advocate, just like we all do.

Feb 29, 2016 3:39 PM

Mopar, I was offered the Essure by my ob at one point, but I elected to have it clipped and tied. I think I said no primarily because the essure was so new at that point. Anyway, big hugs.

Amanda, you were very smart to not have gotten it, it would have only added to your health issues.

Feb 29, 2016 4:49 PM

Oh my goodness that's awful.

Feb 29, 2016 6:49 PM

What a blessing it is not cancer... Praise God! I've had endometreosis since 1983, even after my hysterectomy & oophorectomy. I hope and pray the meds help you! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Wonderful news that you don't have cancer *<]:-) That's me in a party hat. I'm in bed, in pain, but I'm happy for you & I'm celebrating for you,. You have so much going on, enjoy this bit of relief.

And keep your ears open for a class action on essure.

Feb 29, 2016 7:19 PM

Unfortunately there cannot be class action lawsuit against essure because of the pma,. The FDA sided with Bayer and concetious and are leaving thier PMA status even though reports and data were falsified. But we are fighters and are still fighting and continue to do so until this is pulled off the market for good! This is my one mission in life besides keep fighting for my kids. If this one Obgyn doesn't do what needs done to get the coils out then I will go to another one with all the tests results from this one. πŸ˜‰

Mar 01, 2016 12:37 AM

Good for you moparm, you are fighting the good fight. Let us know how you're doing.

Mar 01, 2016 6:26 AM

I will, but I am not doing it alone, I have my pain family to talk to to keep me going and there are 25+ thousand of other women who are also doing what they can on thier level like me with thier Congressman and letter's and filing thier adverse reports to the FDA,( as if that would make a difference) but we are doing it anyway maybe they will get tired of the bombarded with the reports they will actually do something. Some ladies have even gone to thier news stations and done news reports, that's awesome! One lady went on the Doctors TV show. We are making ourselves known, some obgyn's actually stop implanting them and only do the regular tubal because they seen the damage it's done. I have an Obgyn lined up in case this one does not pan out, a lady in my state herd what this one Obgyn did and said that if he doesn't do what he needs to do to get the coils out her on said she would would take care of me, so my stressed out day yesterday turned out to be a Blessed day!

Mar 01, 2016 7:55 AM

No, you are not going at it alone. Keep up the good fight. You are loved. Hugs.

Mar 01, 2016 9:06 AM

How are you feeling today Amanda?

Mar 01, 2016 9:21 AM

Mopar, meh today. Spasms still there although I can't tell if they are coming from my bladder or if my period starting aggravated it. More IV antibiotics in the morning, but for now, rest is best.

Mar 01, 2016 11:47 AM

I'll be praying for you as always. I hope they stop soon, Lord knows you need a break. Sending you my Luv my friend😘

Mar 01, 2016 11:48 AM

Thanks so very much. I appreciate your love and prayers and it definitely goes both ways my friend.. πŸ’•πŸ˜˜

Mar 01, 2016 11:54 AM

Mopar, thankfully one of the better infusion nurses is working tomorrow so it shouldn't be an issue. Lord knows I'm still holding a grudge from last week.

Mar 01, 2016 12:11 PM

Glad you got the good nurse coming out, it's the little things in life we are so thankful for.

Mar 01, 2016 12:31 PM

Maybe it won't take them 8 times already. Going for a nap now because my anxiety is starting to kick my butt right now. It's just the thought of it that sends me cringing.
