Has anyone on here been injured and become disabled due to metal Filshie clips from their tubal ligation?
I was not given an Informed Consent before the surgery in 1998 and I had no clue that the clips kill the tubes and fall off into our bodies!
Many women including myself, have been left with chronic pain due to these clips migrating and reaching bowel, rectum, bladders and they can cause abscesses and hernias!
In my case, two ligaments in my ischial spine were overused due to sports, ballet, stooping at my work in the busiest hospital in my home province, being an avid gardener and leaf raker. ( 45 bags every fall ) I commuted to work and home for 20 years before I could no longer sit at all.
At the same time a clip was on my rectum, the above mentioned ligaments had tethered to a rectal nerve! ( the rectal branch of my right pudendal nerve ). Can you imagine the pain?
Four physiotherapy sessions later, I could no longer lie down. I suffered sleep deprivation for three years. This nerve compression injury HURT LIKE HELL and no doctor or specialist believed me!!
I had to hire a nurse to procure decompression surgery. Not one of the 8 doctors I saw would help me even though they said they would. They misrepresented me the entire time!
Two clips have been removed ten years too late. I still feel the presence of something else and. I was wondering? Since two clips are usually used, why do I read about cases where four clips were used? Could there be another clip inside of me that doctors here are covering up?
They knew about the clips in 2008 and they did nothing to help me but medicate me and try to make me an addict. I do not have a personality disorder. I was suffering INTENSE PAIN This hurt and no doctor believe me. Why not?
