One Year Anniversary Contributed by Arianna

Today, August 22, 2002, I have been pain free for 1 whole year!!!! For me this is a great achievement. I lived for several years prior to having a lap with a specialist in constant pain with nothing that would take it away.

Thanks to my specialist, Dr. Lie, I have spent the past year with my life back. I was able to focus in classes. I didn’t have to take high doses of pain killers just to make it through the day.

To not be in pain for an entire year, except of course for the pain with my period which was mild, is something that I have never really known since starting my period. It is a totally amazing feeling.

I hope that one day, all of the women who suffer from endometriosis, will know what it’s like to be pain free, forever.
