My daughter started Seasonale/Seasonique years ago.No tumor existed prior to that. Now she has a huge, dangerous hepatic tumor that needs surgery and her gallbladder removed. Has growth on her spleen and a lot of pain.Financially drained us and need urgent care.Going to Loma Linda as soon as we can afford trip from NV. It's a very "bloody" tumor, approx. 2/3 of her liver affected. Causing many other issues. Recent blockage put her in ER and critical care.Somewhat stable now, but risk of rupture exists and she is in major pain all the time. Are there any lawsuits or can we file one over this? Her quality of life is awful and the medical care will be ongoing and even with successful surgery, her future is unknown now. Please - any help on this. Anynone know where we can go to stay near Loma Linda Med. Ctr. in S. CA? I lost my job and need to get her there from NV and have a safe place to stay.It's a ticking time bomb. She is so bloated and not herself.Our car needs a starter before we can risk the drive. Many expenses that I don't have funds for. Any Grants, Foundations, etc.? She is only 20 and deserves a better life and to smile again. I can't handle to thought of losing my beautiful daughter! Thank you

Does anyone know if there is a link between liver problems and Chronic Urticaria? They did a biopsy of her welts and verified that she has this awful illness too. She has to take steriods to control it and that makes the liver issues worse. She also has Epilepsy that was controlled and now she has daily seizures. Everything is falling apart for her. The doctors here keep giving us mixed responses to our questions, (NV doctors).
Gads, I am so sorry for you and your daughter. You mkust be going thru hell! I founjd a site will try to link you below. If that doesn't work, just Bing it or Google it as lawsuit for seasonale.
There were a few more too. The side effects of liver problems are listed, but you never know, I think there is already a class action suit about this. Good luck to your daughter, & hang in there. I'll be praying for both of you.
I am so sorry about your daughter, you are both in my Prayers. The Seventh Day Adventist Church owns the Loma Linda Medical center, I am almost positive. Contact the closest branch of that Church and let them know you are planning to go there with your daughter to see if they maybe have hotels also that you could stay at with a discount. They also own the Little Debbie snack company. Keep the info about a possible lawsuit to a "need to know basis," most big companies have big attorneys and money and they can derail lawsuits faster than people can file them. Look on TV for advertising law firms for medications and try calling those firms and keep it quiet. You will have to have a big gun for this trust me. Robert Goldwater is an attorney who has a law firm who sues over medications and they advertise where I live. He may can help you. Good Luck with your daughter's health.
I'm SO very sorry to hear of your situation. How very unfortunate. Liver tumors are a known side effect of birth control pills. although it is rare. It is one of the things they often dont mention when prescribing them. You need to consult with an attorney but you can also file a complaint with the food and drug administration by going on their website home page on the right there is a link to report problems with drugs. You might want to wait for the advice of your attorney.You might speak with your local church. Sometimes they will help folks like yourself who are in dire need for monetary help and may be able to help with getting your car fixed and helping you get to Loma Linda. There is also Mayo Clinic here in Phoenix AZ to consider. Does your daughter have health insurance at all or is she on Medicaid? If so she may have access to a case manager.
Call the number on the back of her card and ask if she has a case manager or if they can put you in touch with one. Many times health insurance companies and Medicaid have RN case managers and also social workers who can provide invaluable help in coordinating her care and giving you help with community resources. You may also look into hospice services from the hospital. Using hospice doesnt mean she will pass away. They often help critically ill people and many times people are discharged from hospice to live full healthy lives. Hospice can give her help with medicines and pain control. I will keep you both in my prayers! I cant even imagine how hard this must be for you both! I have a 20 year old son and it is the greatest fear of every mother that something happens to your child. I hope the very best for you and I hope you can get the help you need to get her better. God be with your family!
Hi I am 30 years old now and a year and a half ago after taking Seasonique for three months I got a pulmonary Embolism and almost died. I have a lump in my arm that a couple doctors said it could be a tumor and no one will refer me to get a mri. No ins company wants to cover me because of my Pulminary Embolism I had. I was looking up attorneys who might handle this and I came across your posting. I am on the look out for a attorney who will handle the Seasonique case. I will keep you posted if I find anyone.
