My wife has always had heavy bleeding during her menstrual cycle

My wife has always had heavy bleeding during her menstrual cycle accompanied with severe cramping for as long as I can remember. Last October her OB diagnosis was several ovarian cysts which he said was the reason why she was experiencing all the pain.

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.  She is a protector of our family and will never allow anything or anyone to jeopardize the family she has built........until endometriosis. 

We have two beautiful children and our lives really couldn't be any better.  My wife has always been physically active and we both appreciate the downtime from our busy careers to be with our children.  Be there emotionally for them goes without saying but also for the things that most people take for granted such as giving a bath, running after them for a quick hug or just getting down on the ground to put a puzzle together.  This has all been taken away from us until Dr. Seckin came into our life.  During all monumental events over the last year and a half my wife and I unfortunately do not remember what truly mattered and why we were attending these events.  What is pronounced in our memories were the violent effects of the silent killer we now know is endometriosis.  Our oldest was graduating kindergarten which is a huge milestone in any families life and that was all taken away from my wife with excruciating burning, pain and pressure. Emotionally my wife was disconnected from myself as well as the children through this entire process.  She was constantly reminded of how she felt and was quite frankly an introvert due to the pain which is on the other side of the spectrum in describing my wife.  Maybe even the worst part of this disease is that before proper diagnosis my wife literally thought she was going insane.  Some good days...mostly terrible days...and rarely a good day would sneak in.  She would always try to be the one in control of this disease and "get through it".   There is nothing worse than seeing the one you love "get through life".  I always make things better for my wife and children and for once in my life I was totally helpless. We are both part of the medical community so we understand disease states and what follows for the patient but what we didn’t know was that endometriosis was attacking her EVERYWHERE.  We decided to make an appointmentt to see her OB.

My wife has always had heavy bleeding during her menstrual cycle accompanied with severe cramping for as long as I can remember.  Last October her OB diagnosis was several ovarian cysts which he said was the reason why she was experiencing all the pain.  We were nervous for the surgery but extremely optimistic that after that surgery she would bounce back the way my wife always had.   Well she opened her eyes after surgery and was in pain.  Not the surgery type of pain but only the pain a woman knows that has endometriosis.  The OB stated that once inside laparoscopically, he noticed the cysts were not the real problem.  He unveiled that there was endometriosis literally covering every vital organ in her. Her bowel, intestine, kidneys, uterus etc.. He did what any good OB would do.  He took the cysts out and ablated all of the endometriosis.  A 20 minute simple surgery turned into over two hours.  The minute I heard ablation was the minute I knew my wife would not only be in pain going forward but more pain than she had ever experienced.  We were lost.   Again we were trying to be optimistic.  Weeks went by....then months.....and my wife felt worse.  The burning, pressure and pain was now out of control.   My wife had never told anyone about her diagnosis of endometriosis until Christmas Eve where she opened up to my step sister.  My step sister’s jaw literally dropped when she heard the news and said "I can’t believe I didn’t know this".  My step sister went through the same thing as my wife and her life was literally changed by this miracle maker.....Dr. Seckin.....Well that;s all we needed to hear.  We called the office and made an appointment.  We both sat down with Dr. Seckin and my wife began explaining her symptoms and literally started crying thinking Dr. Seckin believed she was making this up and that she "was going crazy".  For the first time in my life I didn't see a doctor in front of me but a man....a man that knew what my wife was going through.....a man that has dedicated his life to eradicate endometriosis.....a man that showed compassion for my wife and said he can fix this.....a man that changed my wife’s life forever.  Dr. Seckin assured us everything will be fine and fully described the surgery ahead of all of us.  After this meeting with him I soon realized this surgery is more complex than brain surgery….literally.  Aside from the complex hysterectomy he would excise each and every piece of endometriosis he found.  Excise not ablate.  This is what my wife and I wanted to hear.

 My wife had a full hysterectomy.  She was in surgery for over 6 hours.  The minutes passed like hours while I was waiting for my princess to wake up.  Dr. Seckin visited me just as soon as he was done performing his miracle and said to me he cannot believe what he found and that she was even a functioning human being. I was and still am to this day so appreciative to him.  I was happy, but in the back of my mind I still had the fear that the surgery wouldn’t be a total success.  I was able to see my wife about a half an hour later.  When she opened her eyes she said “ITS GONE!!!”  I was in complete shock.  The pressure was gone…..the burning was gone…..the pain was gone.  Dr. Seckin had done it.  He put my wife back on track to enjoy her life rather than getting through it.  I can go on and on about Dr. Seckin.  It has been only 4 short weeks since the operation and my wife is doing better each and every day.    

You are literally a godsend to me and my wife. Thank you.

    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…

    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…

  • Erin Brehm

    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…

  • Nicholette Sadé

    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…

    My wife had her laparoscopic excision surgery to remove endometriosis with Dr. Seckin on Jan 30, 2014. She doesn't write online reviews so I'm writing this on her behalf. I accompanied her with each office visit she had. The staff--Lucy and Kim, are very friendly, warm and professional. Dr. Seckin was excellent in every capacity. He spent a lot of…

  • 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,…

    I researched and found Dr. Seckin after dealing with years of doctors who couldn't help me or refused to go the extra mile for their patients. I have to say I am truly blessed to have found such a compassionate and talented doctor. He is exquisite with everything he does, and both his team at the office and surgical team…

    Dr. Seckin is a very skilled surgeon. There are not many doctors like him that truly understand the effects of endometriosis. I am lucky to have found him. The staff is wonderful too.

    Dr. Seckin truly LOVES what he does and cares about his patients from the bottom of his heart. My life has already changed in 3 weeks and I couldn’t be more grateful.
