I like many woman have the "crazy woman's disease," a rarely known, often misdiagnosed and best identified by killer cramps; Endometriosis. There is no cure for endometriosis, as of today hormone treatments and repeat surgeries brings us closer to a normal life, and a hysterectomy is the best option to avoid it from coming back.
I support the Endometriosis Foundation of America because it pins the underlying issues with endometriosis. It seeks to help girls like me by promoting education and research thru the ROSE and ENPOWR Projects.
My story starts on November of 2014, when I was first diagnosed with the disease on stage 4. Prior to this endometriosis was unheard of, it became a new word to my vocabulary. I had been misdiagnosed, for years and my symptoms were ignored. I had an emergency surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, and was blessed to into surgery under the hands of Dr. Seckin, who cleaned me completely of two 5 month old size like fetus endometriomas that were grasping my ovaries and uterus. My surgery was not complicated but interesting one as Dr. Seckin stated. I also had endometriomas in other organs of my body.
I am now well into my recovery and already feel like a brand new woman. I soon look forward to celebrating my 30th birthday in good health.
