Truth, Theory, or Tall Tale?

Any doctor can diagnose, remove, and treat Endometriosis.

TallTale

As much as we’d all like to hope that all doctors are created equal, they are not.  There is no known cause for Endometriosis, only theories.  Some doctors don’t even think about it as a possible cause for pain, infertility, or lengthy cycles.  Some have never even heard of it.  Some refuse to believe it’s a real disease, but purely prompted by a psychosomatic response.

There are doctors who refuse to perform surgery while others immediately gravitate toward operating.  Others surgically remove the Endometriosis in such a way that it immediately grows back, or they miss removing all of the implants.  Others remove it more thoroughly, but there is still a chance for recurrence.  A few doctors claim they’re “the best” and are skilled enough to remove it all.

Some only treat the symptoms with experimental clinical trials, others more tried-and-true methods.  Some doctors only rely on Western Medicine, while others point you in the direction of Eastern.  It’s a crapshoot.

You must advocate for your own health.  Continue to search for that one special doctor (or team of physicians) that suit your needs.  And just remember : all doctors are not created equal…

  1. Don’t forget to mention the doctors who “feel” for endo! I literally had a doctor during a pelvic exam one time say to me, “Well, I don’t feel any endometriosis…” I question if this guy seriously even went to med school, it was hands down the dumbest thing a physician has ever said to me. But, sadly, these guys exist and there areally patients out there putting their care into such hands. 😦
