Endometriosis: How to Get Started on Your Healing Journey
We. Get. You. Endometriosis can be excruciatingly painful.
Endometriosis by definition is a disease process whereby tissue somewhat like the endometrium (the lining of the uterus) exists outside the uterus. This “rogue” endometrial-like tissue most commonly involves the peritoneum, a thin layer of tissue that lines the pelvic structures, the bowel, the bladder, and the ovaries. Quite frankly a lot of this medical stuff can be quite dry and boring and does not convey what it is like for a woman to have this disease and how it truly impacts her life, her family, her career, her sex life, and her ability to live her life in very basic ways.
It is estimated that around 1 in 10 women are affected by endometriosis, which equates to some 176 million women worldwide.
Patients with endometriosis can experience horrific pain – for the lucky ones it lasts just a couple of days during their period, and in the worst cases, the pain is 24/7. The dichotomy between the way women with endometriosis look well on the outside but are experiencing excruciating pain internally can cause even well-meaning people to doubt the severity of their pain.
When women come to us for treatment of their endometriosis we are committed to their ongoing care and recovery. For this reason, Vital Health provides a unique program of pre-operative, post-operative and follow-up care that sets us apart from other endometriosis treatment centers, where the care stops at the post-op consult.
