FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


"A dry stretch of weather"

After a soggy start to the weekend, we ended it on a sunnier note. With no big weather systems headed our way, expect tranquil conditions over the next several days with a big warm up through the week.

Wall to wall sunshine will prevail through the late afternoon hours as temperatures peak in the upper 80s. Lower 90s will be felt deeper inland in a few spots, while slightly cooler readings will be along the coast as the seabreeze develops.

Through the evening, temperatures will start to settle back into the lower 80s. Mostly clear skies will remain in the forecast tonight with comfortable temperatures as they dip into the lower to middle 60s area wide.

As high pressure continues to build in across the peninsula, expect mostly sunny skies through Tuesday. Daytime highs will be quite toasty as they top out in the lower 90s. As winds turn more southeasterly and humidity levels start to come up a bit, morning lows will gradually warm into the middle to upper 60s, while daytime temperatures return to the lower 90s each afternoon. The forecast looks dry for much of next week with partly sunny conditions. Models are hinting at a few showers by next weekend, but rain prospects at this time are only around 20-30%.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA. Return to index of stories...

ESSURE FDA-TC MON


MORE THAN 750-THOUSAND WOMEN HAVE HAD THIS PROCEDURE SINCE THE FDA APPROVED ESSURE IN 2002.

AND SINCE THEN, THE CLAIMS THEY'RE CAUSING MAJOR HEALTH PROBLEMS HAS INCREASED.

TONIGHT; SOME ARE QUESTIONING WHY THE FDA ISN'T DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT. Return to index of stories...


ESSURE FDA-CLIP PKG


00:22 I was fine with one child. I didn't want anymore. :23

NOT WANTING TO HAVE SURGERY.

00:19 I knew it was permanent birth control. :21

MOM MICHELLE GARCIA CHOSE ESSURE.

michelle Garcia/Chose Essure / :35 Non surgical. You're supposed to be fine the same day. It sounded like a great alternative.:39

THIS VIDEO FROM THE COMPANY SHOWS HOW IT WORKS.

COILS ARE PLACED INTO THE FALLOPIAN TUBES.

TISSUE GROWS AROUND THEM PREVENTING PREGNANCY.

michelle Garcia/Chose Essure / 01:47 I was told by my doctor that the device was safe and effective. 01:50

BUT SOON AFTER, SHE EXPERIENCED SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS; AND WAS ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL WITH HEAVY BLEEDING.

03:50 The Essure coil on the left side had broke inside my body and migrated to my abdomen. 03:54

heather Walsh/Essure Implants / 11:12 I want to say within the first week I had called my implanting doctor and told him I felt there were some issues. 11:18

AFTER NUMEROUS DOCTOR VISITS HEATHER WALSH DISCOVERED ONE OF THE COILS NEAR HER COLON.

THE WORST POSSIBLE LOCATION.

heather Walsh / 16:42 I had a complete hysterectomy and then the surgery. 16:45

17:27 Dave Question? How has this affected you? In a nutshell? It destroyed my life. SHORTEN BITE

KRISTA GORMAN IS A PHYSICIANS ASSISTANT.

SHE CHOSE ESSURE IN 2008; AND SOON AFTER DISCOVERED A SENSITIVITY TO NICKEL - THE METAL THE COILS ARE MADE FROM.

HER UTERUS AND FALLOPIAN TUBES HAD TO BE REMOVED.

48:07 What it's cost me really can't be measured in dollars.

WE UNCOVERED 943 OTHER WOMEN WHO REPORTED HEALTH ISSUES TO THE FDA SINCE HAVING THE IMPLANTS.

THEIR COMPLAINTS ALLEGE SEVERE PELVIC PAIN, HEAVY BLEEDING AND SOME REPORT ITCHING AND RASHES.

Dr. Edio Zampaglione/Bayer Corp. / :47 To date 750 thousand women worldwide have used Essure.:49

MANUFACTURED BY THE BAYER CORPORATION, THE COMPANY RELEASED THIS STATEMENT.

Dr. Edio Zampaglione /Bayer HealthCare /:16 We are saddened to hear of any patient who has been harmed by anyone of our products regardless of the cause. :24

standup?

FROM THE BEGINNING ESSURE HAS WARNED ABOUT SIDE EFFECTS.

THE F-D-A SAYS THAT; ALONG WITH IT'S RESEARCH OF THESE WOMEN'S CLAIMS OVERALL RESULTS OF THEIR STUDY OF ESSURE DIDN'T SHOW ANY NEW SAFETY PROBLEMS OR AN INCREASED INCIDENCE OF PROBLEMS ALREADY KNOWN.

dr. Ingrid Carlson/Mayo Clinc / 29:21 Any procedure is going to carry with it risks. 29:25

RISKS DR. INGRID CARLSON OF THE MAYO CLINIC SAYS WOMEN NEED TO BE AWARE OF.

SHE HAS IMPLANTED THE COILS IN DOZENS OF PATIENTS WITHOUT COMPLICATIONS.

dr. Ingrid Carlson/Mayo Clinc / 24:29 Things can move around in there. Sometimes the body can move those devices places we don't expect and that's going to true not only of Essure but any device that is placed. 24:39

AS THE NUMBER OF DEVICES PLACED GROWS, SO DO THE COMPLAINTS.

MORE THAN 6-THOUSAND WOMEN HAVE TAKEN TO FACEBOOK TO WARN OTHERS OF THEIR EXPERIENCE.

Michelle / 28:31 The only court we have is the court of public opinion and I guarantee we win in that one every single time. 28:37 Return to index of stories...


ESSURE FDA-TC MON


GARCIA AND OTHERS CAN'T SUE BECAUSE ESSURE GOT PRE-MARKET APPROVAL.

A FEDERAL PRE-EMPTION LAW MAKES THEM EXEMPT FROM LAWSUITS.

Dave ANY CHANCE THIS DEVICE COULD BE RECALLED?

THAT WOULD BE UP TO THE FDA; SO FAR THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT WILL HAPPEN.

AS FOR BAYER TAKING IT OFF THE MARKET - MICHELLE GARCIA IS SET TO SPEAK AT IT'S ANNUAL STOCK HOLDER'S MEETING IN GERMANY THIS MONTH.

SHE'S HOPING TO CONVICE THEM TO STOP MARKETING THE DEVICE.
