“June 14th of 2018 my husband and I planned to get me a reversal procedure but they wouldn’t do it where I live so we had to travel 15 hours away to do it. For those who don’t know what Essure is its two coils that block the fallopian tubes so you can’t get pregnant. In Iowa, its meant to be permanent birth control. So when we got the money we traveled to have it reversed the surgery went really well 8cm left on both sides of my tubes but only 36% chance of pregnancy. So we started trying for a baby and I found out I was pregnant August 1st, 2018! We were super excited but it was short lived because our baby went back with Jesus sept 6th 2018 🙁 we were so depressed and didn’t understand why…. so I was scheduled for a post-miscarriage check-up appointment and they checked everything and my doctor was feeling my throat and found a lump on it he saw it concerning so he ordered a biopsy to be done…. so after a couple of days I got the biopsy and they found out it was thyroid cancer! We were so scared and depressed I didn’t even have time to mourn for our baby that passed away… so over time, I had surgery to remove my thyroid and then did radiation treatment… I struggled with getting enough calcium and getting my thyroid levels leveled out let alone my cancer numbers weren’t going down… but my husband and I stayed in faith and kept praying and thanking God! Only a month starting my thyroid medication my thyroid levels were great! My doctor called me and told me my cancer numbers were at zero and my thyroid levels were perfect! Some people can take years!!! The point is everything happens for a reason even the bad! If it wasn’t for us getting pregnant and losing the baby who knows if they would have caught it in time! God is great! I feel that God sent our baby to save my life! I’m in Remission now and am healthy as ever! We are currently trying to conceive.”
