Kidney Damage And Other Lesser Known Risks Of Fibroids
“The day I had to call my family and tell them that I was in the hospital with a blood clot, the hospital staff kept telling them that I could have died, which didn’t help their fears. I had an 8-week course of iron infusions. I had a baseline of 5. It’s supposed to be 12. They asked me to do 65 mg in the morning and 65 at night, and after doing it consistently, I got my level up to 11. I realized after that I had adapted to the amount of iron in my system.” Tracy said.
Paul MacKoul MD Explains How GYN Bleeding From Fibroids Can Cause Anemia
REACHING OUT TO CIGC FOR MINIMALLY INVASIVE HYSTERECTOMY
Tracy found out about us a few years ago from a friend. When she reached the point where she was struggling with severe symptoms, she decided to schedule an appointment and seek surgical treatment.
“At this point, I was having this horrendous bleeding, even though the clotting was managed, the bleeding was out of control and my stomach was always swollen. I now had a new job and great insurance, so I called The Center for Innovative GYN Care.”
“When I actually went in for surgery, the anesthesiologist was one of the most calm people I’d ever met. Everyone was so welcoming and kind, and you really can feel the love. Even the paperwork was simple.”
RECOVERY AFTER LAPAROSCOPIC HYSTERECTOMY WITH DUALPORTGYN
Recovery is faster after DualPortGYN hysterectomy compared to other procedures. Because of the minimally invasive approach, women recover in 7-10 days, with less complications and pain.
“I spotted one day and had a little soreness where the incisions were. When I finally removed the tape, everything was healed. I had company the day after my surgery, I was walking within the first week. By a week and a half, I was walking an hour a day. I never even filled the pain prescription.”
“By the time I came in for my post op, I felt relieved. Dr. MacKoul said that my uterus, which would normally be about 70 grams, was 862 grams. ‘You needed to do this. This would have developed into something really troublesome if you had waited any longer.’ This was looming over my head for so long. I feel wonderful now.”
THE INNOVATIVE DUALPORTGYN APPROACH
DualPortGYN was developed by CIGC physicians Paul MacKoul MD and Natalya Danilyants MD to improve surgical outcomes so women can benefit from a faster recovery, with less pain. This approach was successfully applied to thousands of cases for hysterectomy, endometriosis, pelvic masses, ovarian cysts and prolapse procedures. DualPortGYN minimizes blood loss and uses only two tiny incisions, 5 mm each, one placed at the belly button and the other at the bikini line. Women recover from a DualPortGYN hysterectomy in about 10 days, and many return to work in a week.
“After the surgery, I am a one-woman marketing team, a grassroots campaign manager. I took a stack of business cards and I give them to people who I know have GYN problems. A long time ago, I was an actress, I did some modeling, and movies, and there is a celebration of one of the films and I’m going to look amazing. I’m happy to be here. I don’t believe in wasting a day. I’ve lost friends at young ages and have known people who have lived into their hundreds. I want to be one who lives a long life.”
