A Patient Finds Relief After Years of Suffering
Finding an excellent and caring doctor is difficult. Marisol had suffered for many years with a multitude of problems: painful sex, pelvic pain, heavy clotting during her periods, and constant exhaustion. Her demanding job required her to move frequently and living in nine different states over the past 15 years made it difficult to find a good doctor — at least one who would listen and take her problems seriously.
Marisol had had ultrasounds to look for cysts or fibroid tumors over the years but nothing had ever been found. She continued to suffer with exhaustion due to the heavy periods and pelvic pain for several more years. After moving to Georgia, her pelvic pain was so severe she ended up in the emergency room at Northside Cherokee Hospital in Canton. The ER doctor gave her pain relief and recommended she see a specialist as soon as possible.
Marisol knew she wanted a doctor who cared deeply for their patients. She did her research, and after reading many positive online reviews, she made an appointment with Cherokee Women’s Health Specialists.
Marisol immediately felt comfortable and at ease with her doctor and knew she was with an expert. She listened as all of the possibilities were discussed with her and solutions were offered. She finally felt heard.
The first and simplest option her doctor suggested was an endometrial ablation, an in-office procedure to destroy the lining of the uterus. Unfortunately, the ablation did not work for her. At that point, a hysterectomy was discussed as an option and Marisol knew that was the best and final solution if she wanted a normal and pain-free life.
Hysterectomy Offers Relief
A vaginal hysterectomy was performed on Marisol and the surgery was a success.
Marisol only spent one day in the hospital and went home with minimal pain. It’s been over six months since her surgery and she is feeling great. After her hysterectomy, she is living a life free of the horrible pain that she suffered from for so many years.
She is beyond thrilled that she chose Cherokee Women’s Health. “My doctor was phenomenal. I definitely this practice to everyone.”
A hysterectomy can be an emotional decision for many women, but the benefits often outweigh the downsides. Finding the right doctor who is an expert in such surgeries is key to a successful outcome.
