Dear Dr. Seckin,
I just wanted to say a quick thank you for taking such good care of my girlfriend, Amanda Z. For the past 5 years, it has been heartbreaking seeing her in so much pain. We have gone to several doctors, many of which were not sure what to do for her. It is comforting to know she is now in good hands under your care. I truly appreciate all you have done for her.
“It’s just you.” One doctor told me while laughing. “Whatever makes you sleep at night”, was another. This is when I asked for blood work and an ultrasound to make sure I was cyst free because of a prior surgery I had to removed one on my ovary. I was in and out of hospitals for 10 years. Always misdiagnosed. Hunched over in pain for hours and days. After years and years of pain, I took a step in the right direction.
I just turned 30 years old a week ago. My whole life I have been planning events, vacations, and even work- sometimes around my periods. Two weeks prior to my period every month, I’d become symptomatic. I’d get bloated, moody, and would suffer terrible body aches. My menstrual cycles were life changes, which is how I referred to them. Once I got my period, mentally I would feel relieved but physically- especially the first 2 days I would be keeled over in pain so bad that I would wake up from the cramps….
Endometriosis is the major cause of infertility and pelvic pain in women. 1 in 4 of us have it, this chronic disease has been researched for decades but we have yet to find a cure. My name is Lorena Perez and my struggle started at the age of 12 when I first start menstruating, every month I had to be picked up from school. The pain, nausea, fever and vomiting became the norm. It was not until I was 29 years old that I finally became diagnosed with endometriosis.
Dr. Seckin has a gift. An amazing gift that there are not enough words to describe how wonderful he is. Since the age of 12 until last year 2015 at the age of 35 I have been suffering from debilitating cramps, back pain and heavy bleeding during my period. Like many women who suffer from endometriosis, I felt alone and defeated thinking I was never going to feel like a normal person at any point in my life.
