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 Dr. Kawami Clay at Cherokee Women’s Health Specialists.
Finding Solutions with Dr. Clay
Marisol immediately felt comfortable and at ease with Dr. Clay. She recalls, “Dr. Clay was so sweet and kind. She really knew her stuff and I knew I was with an expert.” Dr. Clay discussed all of the possibilities with Marisol – and she offered solutions. Marisol trusted Dr. Clay to work with her until she was able to get relief. She finally felt heard.
The first and simplest option Dr. Clay 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, Dr. Clay discussed a hysterectomy as the final and best option. Marisol knew it was the only solution if she wanted a normal and pain-free life.
Hysterectomy Offers Relief
Dr. Clay performed a vaginal hysterectomy 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 Dr. Clay as her physician. “Dr. Clay is a phenomenal physician. Not only is she my doctor but I feel like she’s my friend. She has the kindest bedside manner and I definitely recommend her 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.
Dr. Clay is a board-certified OB/GYN and has the unique skills to address complex female issues. You don’t need to suffer with pain any longer. Call us today for an appointment at Cherokee Women’s Health at 770.720.7733.
