Shakira's Story

Shakira Azeez-West - Jun, 2014
Dr. Seckin performed my surgery early July; I was home the same day, and within two weeks I was feeling back to normal. Needless to say, my uncomfortable cramps are no longer, I have no scar tissue in utero, and to the naked eye, you would think I scratched myself -- the surgical scar is so small. Dr. Seckin did…

In March of 2007, I was told by a doctor that my inability to become pregnant was because of a condition that was irreparable, and had given me adoption options. Devastated by that diagnosis, I sought a second opinion, Dr. V., who said it was a very large fibroid blocking my cervix. Dr. V. gave me an option of having the surgery performed by him via bikini cut c-section, or referring me to Dr. Seckin for a laparoscopic myomectomy which I had never heard of before. Not being sure of what it was, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Seckin for a third opinion, and to discuss Dr. V.'s options.

Dr. Seckin confirmed that the fibroid was the issue, and described the surgery to me that would be performed as an out-patient procedure, and a significantly less recovery time than the c-section surgery. I thought about it for a few weeks, and decided that this was a great choice. Dr. Seckin performed my surgery early July, I was home the same day, and within two weeks I was feeling back to normal. Needless to say, my uncomfortable cramps are no longer, I have no scar tissue in utero, and to the naked eye, you would think I scratched myself (the surgical scar is so small). Dr. Seckin did an excellent job! I haven't tried to conceive yet, but I'm all healed up and ready to go thanks to him.
