Re: Mirena IUD- Possible class action lawsuit- please stop by

HI Kris,
I'm a 19 yea old mother of one who is 8 months old. I had been looking for a safe hormone free form of birth control (because of the cancer controversy and I have several types of cancer in my family) when my OB recommended the Mirena because I'm allergic to metal. She did not tell me about the risk of perforation for breastfeeding mothers.
I had one placed on monday june 26 I had some pain that day and then tues day the pain was almost completely gone and yesterday which was wednesday I started having the worst pain in the world. like something was pushing against my rectum and I had the worst cramps so I went in to the doctors and everyone was acting like I was being a big baby but then when she did a vaginal exam she said oh well the strings not where I left it. So today she had me go in for an ultrasound and found that it was no longer inside my uterus, it had perforated it and it's now "floating" between my uterus and my rectum. She was waiting for the results to decide what to do but now that she knows, I'm having a laproscopy tomorrow morning. She was going to wait until monday but then I started having an allergic reaction to the pain medicine she had given me so I called in to tell her and she told me she could fit me in tomorrow morning. I am very scared because she had me sign a waiver that said I could have damage to my other organs and I'm worried that I won't be able to have any other children. My Dr. had said that it wasn't very likely but she also said that she didn't think it was all the way out of my uterus so I don't know. What do you think?
