I ignored ALL the signs!
Same gynecologist for 15 years!
Dreaded every cycle, cld barely make it out of bed.
Every cycle it was something horrible to look forward to.
Suffering and telling your gynecologist all your symptoms over the years.
Committed to a yearly pap.
And getting completely dismissed in regards to “abnormal” pain, heavy bleeding, heavy clotting).
7 months ago.
One day, before my cycle started.
I get the same left side abdominal pain.
Same location. Leaving me bed ridden for the first 2 days of my cycle. Can’t eat! Can’t sleep! Complete excruciating pain! Thought it was diverticulosis (previously diagnosed/left sided abdominal pain).
Finally go to my gynecologist last month. Throws out the word Endometriosis. Supposedly go hand in hand with Fibromyalgia
( previously diagnosed 2018/severe musculoskeletal pain since 2013).
I go home.
Google Endometriosis specialist.
Top of list, Dr. Boz.
His office staff was very pleasant.
Dr. Boz examined me and new right away I had endometriosis.
He wouldn’t know how sever until he was in the OR.
Needless to say, 5 incisions later, that it was stage 4 endo.
Invisible chronic illness is exactly that! Invisible.
1 in 10 women suffer from endometriosis. And most don’t know.
Periods should NOT leave you unable to daily tasks! Please listen your body.
The problem was completely overlooked! By so many. Including myself.
ALL THE WHILE... All the while, my entire pelvic region is going through a massive disease in the span of 8+ years and I had no idea.
My entire body was shutting down on me. I would cry in excruciating pain and ask God to help me.
2 weeks post op!
Made it to the beach with my family.
Owned my scars.
Swelling is down.
Been on my feet for hours at a time, no lower back pain!
Dr. Boz truly changed my life!
A true caregiver at heart.
His energy is awesome.
He makes you a priority!
He follows up with his patients directly.
I’ve 10+ doctors in the last 5 years.
With dead end results.
I walked into Dr. Boz’s office, they welcomed me with open arms, they went above and beyond and I will be forever thankful!
