Anabela C.’s Endometriosis Story

I am 34 and when I was 21, my doctor told me I had endometriosis. After 12 years of unnecessary and countless laparoscopic surgeries on my body, my doctor told me he couldn’t do anything further for me and that he was running out of options. After the 6th or 7th laparoscopy to “rectify and fix the problem” he finally said that I needed to see a specialist because he could no longer help me.

My first referral to a specialist doctor

After that, he referred me to a specialist at Columbia Hospital. He did not respond well to my needs and my history (especially the seizures) at all. He wanted to put me on a medication that would worsen the situation and possibly be detrimental to my health overall. I was extremely distraught and disappointed at how dismissive these doctors were to me and my case, which happens to be my life.

Contacting Dr. Seckin

That is when I took matters into my own hands and connected with Dr. Seckin. I recall reading online about his significant success rate with women who have difficult gynecological issues, mainly relating to endometriosis. So, I made an appointment for a consultation. I was completely shocked at how super attentive he is with his patients and their needs and the fact that he took the time to listen to what the patient’s concerns are and what was pertinent for diagnostic treatment and/or solution.

This was something new to me because I always felt like I was “inconveniencing” my previous doctor and his staff. Dr. Seckin’s staff could not have supported me more, and be more attentive, and professional. That was another thing that I had not actually experienced with my previous doctor. I always felt like I was inconveniencing them.

Deciding to have excision surgery

So after weighing in my options, I decided that excision surgery was my best option. My surgery was on Nov. 5, 2010. To be completely honest, it was the best decision I ever made because I have never felt better than I do now. I am attempting to this testimony that the symptoms are barely there if any at all on some days. Every so often I’ll get a sharp pain for a second or two but that does not even remotely compare to the debilitating pain I experienced before, which was so unbearable that it landed me in a hospital ER. 

Praise to Dr. Seckin

I believe Dr. Seckin works wonders because he has all the qualities that make a wonderful doctor and even a more successful surgeon. He listens and communicates with his patients for the best treatment plan and is a true patient advocate. Thank you Dr. Seckin for helping me get my my life back!
