I had a small fibroid before I got pregnant, which grew to 20cm during pregnancy

I was a little apprehensive at first, as I had just had a c-section in August, but I decided to go for it. Dr. Seckin advised that he would perform a myomectomy, and that I would be up and about in approximately 2 weeks.

After having my baby in August 2013, I still looked 5 months pregnant in October 2013.  I had a small fibroid before I got pregnant, which grew to 20cm during pregnancy.  Looking five months pregnant when you are not is very depressing, so I decided to research and have the fibroid removed. Through my research, I found Dr. Seckin on the internet.  Once he saw me in his office, he said "you have to take that out."  I was a little apprehensive at first, as I had just had a c-section in August, but I decided to go for it. Dr. Seckin advised that he would perform a myomectomy, and that I would be up and about in approximately 2 weeks. A 4lb fibroid was removed during the surgery. I cannot believe that a 4lb fibroid was growing inside me with my baby. Dr. Seckin performed a successful surgery. I stayed in the hospital for 2 days and I was back up in a week (walking and taking care of my baby). The recovery was so much easier than my c-section. I want to thank Dr. Seckin for all his help and advice; I am forever grateful. If I hadn't gone to him, maybe I would still be walking around looking 5 months pregnant.

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis. I needed laparoscopic surgery, so I went to see my former gynaecologist and he performed the procedure (a surgery which he supposedly does hundreds of times a year) last November. I had severe pain again when I had my period in January and was advised to go on taking a…

    After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.
