Warriors in Hospital Gowns

My body was fighting,
The brain had given up
It's telling me something's
Wrong, but the test results
Aren't enough

"There's no evidence to prove
Your pain.
What else do you want us to say?
We ran all the tests and you are clear,
Maybe it's anxiety or too much fear"

But I am calm and something's
Not right
Back and forth to doctors
And hospital nights
"Please don't send me home,
There must be something you can do
I can't live another day like this,
You can't imagine what I'm going through

It hurts to walk it, it hurts to sit
Please tell me you'll try to
At least look into it?"

The doctors never called me back…

I searched for someone out there
That would give my case a chance
I found a doctor in the city that
Wrote a book on endometriosis
He dedicated his life to help women
With this diagnosis
I had hope that this was my
last chance
As soon as I met Dr. Seckin
I knew my life
Was in good hands
A part of me was in disbelief
That I could be fixed

Goldstein took my hand and
Walked me through all of it

I felt like I was in someone else's
Body for the past few years
Ever since my surgery I haven't
Shed a single tear
The ibuprofen has been in the closet
And my heat bag is collecting dust
I can wear my favorite dress again
Without looking at myself with
Disgust

They saved my life…
No only physically but
Mentally
Don't give up hope, the
Doctor will see
You now

    I’ve seen many obgyns over the years explaining my monthly symptoms during my period...but eventually it became a daily struggle with these pain. It feels like a poke here and there near my right pelvic region. I was given birth control pills for the past ten years but honestly, it didn’t help at all. I was in bed whenever I…

    Dr.Seckin is so much more than a surgeon. His passion for helping endometriosis sufferers and determination to improve the quality of life in all of his patients is undeniable. I remember when my gynecologist first told me I needed a laparoscopy. Her exact words were "I can do the surgery, but if you were MY daughter- I'd send you to…

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis. I needed laparoscopic surgery, so I went to see my former gynaecologist and he performed the procedure (a surgery which he supposedly does hundreds of times a year) last November. I had severe pain again when I had my period in January and was advised to go on taking a…

    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!
