My Conversations with Dr. Seckin about Endometriosis

My Conversations with Dr. Seckin about Endometriosis

Welcome: Let's Speak Up about Endometriosis

Welcome to Dr. Seckin's blog page. I'm very excited to help him offer it. I'm Annie and after years of suffering from painful endometriosis, Dr. Seckin surgically removed mine and I now know a better quality of life that only a short while ago I didn't believe would be possible again.

I've since had many wonderful conversations with the doctor and wondered if there was any way I could help other women discover the relief that I found after I received proper endometriosis diagnosis, care and treatment.

Well, . . . This is it! I'm a writer and writing this blog for Dr. Seckin will help spread the word about endometriosis, and offer hope to those who have the disease. I frequently have information-packed conversations with the doctor about all things endometriosis and will often try to share here what I'm learning.

From his decades of front-line experience as a laparoscopic surgeon and endometriosis specialist, Dr. Seckin knows that endometriosis is a painful and serious problem that has for the most part stayed silent -- out of public earshot. That must change, as the doctor's often said, and this blog is another way to add a voice to the growing chorus that seeks to reverse the terrible course of this devastating, yet highly treatable, disease from which many millions of United States women and adolescent girls needlessly (and too often silently) suffer.

Here you can expect to find endometriosis news and commentary, links to resources for more information, alerts about events and activities and more--all coming from my numerous conversations with Dr. Seckin, and all focused on the goal of raising public and medical community consciousness about endometriosis and early, proper, diagnosis, care and treatment for it.

Let's begin . . .

    Prior to meeting Dr. Seckin and reading his book, “The Doctor Will See You Now”, I knew little to nothing about endometriosis. I was led to believe that endometriosis was not a serious condition. I was told that the pain could be managed by taking the “pill”. I was told that the cysts on my ovaries were harmless. I was…

    Fast forward 5 years to find out incidentally I had a failing kidney. My left kidney was only functioning at 18%. During this time, I was preparing all my documents to send to Dr. Seckin to review. However, with this new information I put everything on hold and went to a urologist. After a few months, no one could figure…

    I had a wonderful experience working with Dr. Seckin and his team before, during and after my surgery. I came to Dr. Seckin having already had laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis 5 years prior, with a different surgeon. My symptoms and pain had returned, making my life truly challenging and my menstrual cycle unbearable. Dr. Seckin was quick to validate my…

    I came to Dr. Seckin after years of dealing with endometriosis and doctors who didn't fully understand the disease. He quickly ascertained what needed to be done, laid out the options along with his recommendation and gave me the time to make the right decision for me. My surgery went without a hitch and I'm healing very well. He and…
