Thoughts on Mother's Day

Thoughts on Mother's Day

As a surgeon who specializes in treating endometriosis, Mother’s Day is bittersweet for me, and it is a day that is emotionally charged for the 1 in 10 women affected by this disease.

Like so many things in life, the ability to have a child is often taken for granted. Unfortunately and much too often, endometriosis makes women incapable of bearing children.

To those women who were unable to conceive because their diagnosis was missed until too late, my heart goes out to you.

To those of you who are still struggling with the issue of infertility, my thoughts are with you.

Congratulations to those of you who are mothers because you have been spared this disease or who have been diagnosed in time and successfully treated.

Motherhood should be a choice for every woman. Endometriosis robs women of that choice. 

Help me to make a difference. Talk about this disease. Tell everyone you know about the signs and symptoms. The earlier the diagnosis and treatment, the better the outcome.

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…
