Hi I'm new to this site.
I'm wondering if anyone has had the mirena coil fitted, and had abdominal pain and complications after?
My journey of chronic pelvic pain started when I had the mirena coil fitted - i remember having severe abdominal cramps almost straight away. I contacted the clinic where I had it fitted and my doctor surgery, who both said this was normal and it would take several months to settle down. It wasn't until I nearly collapsed with pain that I had an emergency ultrasound scan which showed the mirena coil close to my cervix. The doctor removed it straight away and issued me with 2 lots of antibiotics and a sick note, telling me I had an infected pelvis. I never had any follow up appointments to this as the doctor said the antibiotics would sort it out.
After going to see my doctor several times he referred me to see a gynaecologist due to my ongoing abdominal pain.
My gynaecologist explained that he would need to do laparscopic surgery to determine the cause. I had my first post Nov 2013 which diagnosed endometriosis. My second operation in April 2014 was to remove the endometriosis - I I still had the same abdominal pain as before my operation. Eventually my gynaecologist said I had adenomyosis so April 2016 I had a hysterectomy removing my womb, tubes and cervix - unfortunately this hasn't worked either. In fact my symptoms are worse now than they were before. The pathology results showed there was no endometriosis in my womb - do its no surprise it didn't help with my pelvic pain.
Has this happened to anyone else or does anyone else have any ideas what could be going on? I'm desperate to feel well again. Xx
