Lift my uterus during the procedure

I ]suffered from a prolapsed uterus, and asked Dr. Seckin at our first meeting if he might be able to lift my uterus during the procedure.

I was referred to Dr. Seckin by my OB/GYN due to a cyst in my left ovary that had to be removed. I also suffered from a prolapsed uterus, and asked Dr. Seckin at our first meeting if he might be able to lift my uterus during the procedure, as well. He agreed, and did a wonderful job. Dr. Seckin performed the lift without using mesh, which is the standard procedure. I found him and his staff to be not only accomplished and professional, but also kind and very available.

My story with endometriosis begins 33 years ago when I was 16 years old.  I got my first period right before freshman year of high school at the age of 14.  I had mixed feelings as all of my friends had begun their periods already so I was happy to finally get mine and become a “woman”.  But I remember being so upset at having to wear pads and feeling inconvenienced.  If I only knew what lie ahead… Soon my periods became very heavy, filled with clots and bleeding that even overnight pads (sometimes two at a time) could not…

CARISSA, NEW YORK

We have our life back.  During the last year of our lives I never thought I would utter those words.  Well, I just did and without you I would be fearful to know where my marriage and most importantly my wife would be.  I really am not sure where to begin.  I have been with the one whom my heart will always follow for the better part of 11 years.  She is the strongest most resilient person I have ever known who always can see the silver lining in any situation professionally as well as personally.  

MICHELE C. - NEW YORK, NY

Today, after leaving the park with the kids, I went home to continue the day. I decided it was okay to remove from my purse a prescription of Percocet, Tylenol 3 and Thermacare heat wraps. All without fear! That fear that at any time, I could be in pain. Gratitiude and relief are not even close to what I am feeling. I am still searching for the right words to describe this. At any time, I could have pain totally ruin my day. 

LINDSAY G. - NEW JERSEY

"It's just you." One doctor told me while laughing. "Whatever makes you sleep at night", was another. This is when I asked for blood work and an ultrasound to make sure I was cyst free because of a prior surgery I had to removed one on my ovary. I was in and out of hospitals for 10 years. Always misdiagnosed. Hunched over in pain for hours and days. After years and years of pain, I took a step in the right direction.

LIC, NY

Endometriosis is the major cause of infertility and pelvic pain in women. 1 in 4 of us have it, this chronic disease has been researched for decades but we have yet to find a cure. My name is Lorena Perez and my struggle started at the age of 12 when I first start menstruating, every month I had to be picked up from school.  The pain, nausea, fever and vomiting became the norm. It was not until I was 29 years old that I finally became diagnosed with endometriosis.  

CICELY W. - UNION CITY, NJ

Dr. Seckin has a gift.  An amazing gift that there are not enough words to describe how wonderful he is. Since the age of 12 until last year 2015 at the age of 35 I have been suffering from debilitating cramps, back pain and heavy bleeding during my period. Like many women who suffer from endometriosis, I felt alone and defeated thinking I was never going to feel like a normal person at any point in my life.

    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.

    Dr. Seckin brought me back to life! I am now 3 weeks into my recovery after my laparoscopy surgery, and I feel like a new and improved woman! Being diagnosed with Endometriosis, then 25yrs old in 2015, and discovering the severity of my case being stage 4, made me devastated. Dr. Seckin's vast knowledge of the disease, sincere empathy, and…

  • Karen N

    I was diagnosed with Endometriosis at 19. I saw several Endometriosis "Specialists" since then, had a few laproscopic surgeries to "remove" the endometriosis and continued to be in pain. I had a hysterectomy in 2012 and was told this would stop the pain once and for all. No such luck! Tired of spending days in bed with a heating pad,…
