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 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…
