March is Endometriosis Awareness Month

posted Mar 7, 2017, 7:29 AM by Crystal Raen

It is endometriosis awareness month. 1 in 10 women have endometriosis. It is a chronic condition that cannot be cured. At least not yet, I have high hopes as I am one of those 1 in 10 women who have endometriosis. I had surgery in August of 2013 to remove endometrial adhesions from my intestines, abdominal lining, my right ovary, and a chocolate cyst from my left ovary. When I say that my Bug (she'll be 2 in just a few months) was a miracle, I mean it. I’ve been very fortunate that the pain from endometriosis has not yet returned to the level that it was before my surgery, but it has been gradually worsening month by month and I dread to be one of the women who have to have repeated surgeries throughout their lives in order to maintain the pain at a level that is tolerable. That isn’t enough, we need more research, more doors opening to help us treat and possibly cure this disease.
