Essure...does anyone have it?



Recommended Posts

I had the ablation done 2 years ago... If you're certain you are done bearing children' date=' I HIGHLY recommend it.... Like the sleeve, I wish I would have done it years ago.....

Do you have to have certain issues to get an ablation or can you just walk into the gyno and say you want it? What was the healing like? I may consider this later after my Essure is healed :)

Well I had my Essure procedure at the hospital this morning. I got home a few hours ago and am doing very well. My experience was night and day from the people who had it in office. I got checked in and set up in my room. The anesthesiologist came in and explained everything to me. They took me to the operating room and the anesthesiologist told me he was giving me medicine to make me a little dizzy. The next thing I know I woke up feeling alert and happy in recovery. Minor cramping that lasted about an hour...nothing bad enough to need meds. Now its mild passing cramps here and there and very little bleeding. I feel relief already knowing that I almost do not have to worry about birth control anymore. Fingers crossed that in 3 months hopefully my tubes will be all closed off :) So to those considering Essure...the hospital under general anesthesia is the easy breezy way to go!

I had my essure done in 2005, it was not bad at all, I was out, got up, had a little cramps and the next day i was walking and shopping, My girlfriend just had it done this year too and she had the same experience. Now I really need an ablation and that sounds terrifying to me...but I have always had such bad periods and now that I am getting older they seem to get even heavier, its so embarrassing, I always have accidents.

I had the Essure procedure in my docs office two years ago. Piece of cake! A little crampy that afternoon, but felt fine the next day. So glad I did it...

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
