I am four months post op with Dr. Seckin. I just re read my journey pre op and I truly realize how much my life has changed in these few months. I can confidently say the surgery was a huge success. Remembering how much pain I was in everyday seems unreal now. I would say it took about 2 - 3 months after surgery for me to really see how big the difference is. I started pelvic floor physical therapy about a month after surgery which really helped me understand the healing process and what exactly was happening in my body. My last 3 periods since surgery have been a bit rough pain and length wise but I was assured they would get better and I trust they will. I don’t have too much pain in between periods now which is a huge difference from before.

Mentally I feel 100% better. I can think more clearly, I’m so much more motivated in all aspects of my life. I feel more present during family and friend functions and in work situations. That alone is the biggest blessing I could ask for. I didn’t realize how unmotivated I was until I wasn’t in pain every day. It’s hard to think about anything else when you’re in that much pain and bleeding constantly. Looking at it now, I feel like I was in this terrible endo bubble for the past 5years and it completely controlled my life even when I thought I was in full control.

I am able to work mostly pain free again (without heating pads and pain killers) and even want to take the next steps to further my career. Although this seems like a normal thing for a person in their 20’s to do, I wasn’t able to think about any of that because I was sick all the time. It’s sad when I think about how much time of my life was wasted in the diagnostic stages; however I feel extremely lucky to be out of this nightmare because I know there are so many women still going through it and will for a very long time.

 I am forever grateful to Dr. Seckin for giving me my life back. This disease is very ugly and although I always used to say, “It could always be worse” I know first-hand now that it can also be so much better.  I think it’s very important for all women going through this to know you do not have to do this alone because in its darkest stages it can feel extremely lonely and hopeless but there are people out there who can and are willing to help you.  Thank you Dr. Seckin.

    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!

  • Sheena Wright

    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.

  • Angela Aro

    I have struggled with endometriosis and adenomyosis since first starting my period at 13. I was diagnosed at 21 and what followed was a series of unsuccessful surgeries and treatments. My case was very aggressive and involved my urinary tract system and my intestines. After exhausting all of my local doctors I was lucky enough to find Dr. Seckin. We…

    Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!

  • Kristin Sands

    Like so many women who have tirelessly sought a correct diagnosis and proper, thorough medical treatment for endometriosis, I found myself 26 years into this unwanted journey without clear answers or help from four previous gynecological doctors and two emergency laparoscopic surgeries. I desperately wanted to avoid the ER again; a CT scan for appendicitis also revealed a likely endometrioma…

    Dr. Seckin literally gave my wife her life back. I am eternally grateful to him for his generous, determined spirit to see that Melanie finally live free from the prison bonds of Endometriosis.

  • Carla

    I am so grateful to Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I was misdiagnosed with the location of my fibroids and have had a history of endometriosis. Dr. Seckin was the one who accurately diagnosed me. Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein really care about their patients and it shows. They listened to my concerns,…

    Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein radically changed my quality of life. They treat their patients with dignity & respect that I've personally never seen in the literally 25+ doctors I've seen for endometriosis. This summer, I had a surgery with Dr. Seckin & Goldstein. It was my first with them, but my 5th endo surgery. I couldn't believe the difference,…

  • Megan Rafael Moreno

    I was in pain for 2 years. I was getting no answers, and because dr Goldstein and dr seckins were willing to see and treat me I'm finally feeling almost back to normal. They were very down to earth and helpful in my time of need. Dr Goldstein was easy to talk to and caring, she took care of me…
