Shame, Dismissal, Agony:
Women With Endometriosis Speak Out

Shame, Dismissal, Agony: <br />Women With Endometriosis Speak Out

by Gillian Edevane | //www.nbcbayarea.com

Endometriosis awareness month is in full swing, and we would like to give a big thank you to NBC for having us and highlighting the millions of women who are suffering from the pain and agony caused by endometriosis. Too many endometriosis cases are aggressively treated with unnecessary hysterectomies, by doctors who are not properly trained in such techniques as excision surgery, the “gold standard” for surgical removal of endometriosis. It is hard not to shed tears when you see these women. The first step to ensure that surgeons are properly taught in treating endometriosis is through raising awareness. We applaud the thousands of women and men working to stress this importance, as well as the continued education in the field of endometriosis.

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…

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…
