2 weeks ago I had the essure coils placed in my tubes (alternative to tubal ligation). Everything seemed to go great at first. I had mine done as outpatient surgery under general anestesia, and was home about 3 hours after. My doc told me to wait 2 weeks before sex, and last night was the end of the 2 weeks, so you know what my husband and I did... ;) Well, last night I started cramping again, and spotting, and now my left shoulder is hurting so bad, that the 2 motrin I took aren't doing anything! I was told to expect all of this for a couple days after the surgery, and I did have the cramping and spotting, but I was also on the last day of my period when they did it. I never did have the shoulder pain til last night, and it isn't just a sore muscle from sleeping wrong. This is much more painful than that. Has anyone else had these problems? I lost my insurance right after they put them in, so I really don't want to call the doc, but it feels like something could be wrong. Also, my husband said it felt like I was tighter down there, and it did hurt a little too, so I'm wondering if everything could still be swollen.
