For almost a year, I was experiencing a consistent, sharp pain in my abdomen, as well as the feeling of being very bloated, making everyday activities challenging and uncomfortable. I underwent multiple tests, yet the cause of my symptoms was not found. During this time, my husband, Thomas, and I discovered I was pregnant. Unfortunately, I experienced a miscarriage just weeks later. It was at this point that the source of my pain and discomfort was finally uncovered – I had uterine fibroids.
I decided to receive a second opinion, and through a friend, was referred to reproductive endocrinologist Edward Dourron, M.D. Dr. Dourron was very confident that the source of the pain and bloating were the fibroids and advised that I have them removed through a robotic-assisted myomectomy before trying to get pregnant again. Just months following the surgery, we were thrilled to discover that I was pregnant again. I am currently eight months along.
My husband and I are so grateful for Dr. Dourron’s expertise and guidance. It’s a dream come true – my pain is gone, and we will be welcoming a new baby girl in May. Dr. Dourron gave me and my husband a second chance at a happy ending, and we are so appreciative.
