Endometriosis is a disease where tissue similar to (but not the same as) the lining of the uterus is found elsewhere throughout the body. This tissue is invasive and destructive. It comes with a list of painful symptoms, and requires surgery to both diagnose and treat.
Endo is an incredibly complex disease with no known cause or cure. And anyone who has endo or anyone who supports a loved one with endo knows there’s no short cut to managing the obstacles that comes with it. For more information on the disease – read my what is endo guide.
The only way to treat endometriosis is to have it removed surgically by a skilled excision surgeon. And because this is not a cure, the disease often returns and is persistent and chronic in nature. Making symptom management imperative for endo sufferers to live a productive and happy life.
