Bladder Endometriosis

I am actually from Santa Cruz and live a couple of blocks from some of the best surfing in the world. I took it up about two years ago. But I do not want to misrepresent, I would not even say I am really a surfer. I have spent some time on the board but I am probably better described as shark bait.

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great.

I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…
