I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids over 12 years ago. Wanting to preserve my ability to have children, my only option at that time was a myomectomy. The doctor explained that this was a temporary fix and that the fibroids would most likely grow back, but I had no idea how true this would be for me. I underwent the myomectomy, which was a very invasive surgery that landed me in the hospital for almost a week. The pain was indescribable and my recovery took several months. Almost immediately, fibroids began to appear again. Over the course of the next decade, my uterus grew to about 22 weeks in size. I went to dozens of doctors in hopes of a solution, but I was told that my only option was a hysterectomy. I was not willing to do it and was desperate for another solution. I had seen the life changing effects of a hysterectomy with my Mother and many others, although doctors claimed that there are “zero side effects.” And the thought of another painful myomectomy brought me to tears.
My life had changed radically from an active, healthy one to one consumed by horrible symptoms. I had extremely heavy periods, chronic anemia, chronic fatigue, a very enlarged abdomen, painful intercourse, frequent urination, irregular bowels, gastrointestinal issues, and depression. The fibroids had taken over my life and I felt imprisoned by my condition with no way out.
When I read about Dr. Lee and Acessa, a minimally invasive treatment for fibroids, I felt hopeful for the first time in over a decade. I contacted a few doctors who were performing Acessa but my case was too advanced. That’s when I contacted Dr. Lee, and was ecstatic when he said he could help. After all, who better to perform my surgery than the doctor who invented it.
I underwent Acessa 8 months ago. Dr. Lee treated all EIGHTEEN of my fibroids in an outpatient procedure. There was minimal pain afterward, and I was back on the road driving home 3 days later. In the first month following the procedure, I already felt a huge relief from my symptoms. I felt “lighter” in general, my first period was normal for the first time in years, and my bladder issues slowly began to fade. I began to feel more energetic, happy, and totally excited about life again. Over the next few months, my tummy decreased immensely in size and is now almost flat! The rest of my symptoms have all now disappeared.
Acessa, and Dr. Lee gave me back my life. It is a miracle treatment for all women who are suffering from fibroids as I once was, even those with extreme cases like mine.
There is another option. There is hope. There is Acessa!
