I lived most of my life suffering from menstrual pain and discomfort that kept getting worse.
I was diagnosed with #endometriosis one year ago, and endured its agony silently, yet magnanimously, for 365 days. I was terrified of the idea of a surgery, and was trying to normalize living in pain, until I came across a random video of Dr. Elias speaking about the risk of endometriosis, and what it can lead to.
All the suffering ended the second I walked into his clinic. From the diagnosis, to explaining the situation, to giving treatment options with risk-benefit straightforwardly … I walked out with a set date for the robotic surgery!
Today, 8 days after my surgery, I walk out of his clinic to drive my car, go to work, and travel on my business trip in a few days … but this time pain-free, healthier, not emergency-prone, more confident, and determined to change lives the way he changed mine.
Do not normalize living in pain.
