WOW. How scary this must have been for you! I’m so proud of you for being brave enough to risk taking out the implant… that was a huge decision to make and it really ended up paying off. Having a doctor telling you “no” and knowing there are possible complications is a big risk to take, but when it comes to the state of your mind… I agree that it’s worth it. I am SO glad it paid off for you. I’m sure this was a learning experience for the doctor too!
It makes sense that having an allergen living in your body can manifest in a lot of ways, including making its way to your brain. This makes me think of all the women who have had similarly terrible complications from the Essure implant. In this case, it’s nickel and not cobalt (from what I’ve heard), but it has ruined a LOT of lives.
Thank you SO much for sharing your story. This is extremely important information to share and I hope it helps somebody else!
