CIGC’s hysterectomy patient from Maryland – Tracy J. – was struggling with fibroids that caused severe GYN symptoms. Tracy had not been sick before and she first ignored the signs when she first experienced pain and discomfort back in 2012. As years passed, she became extremely anemic due to very heavy bleeding and developed a small embolism in her leg that could have been fatal.

“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. I realized after that I had adapted to the amount of iron in my system.” Tracy said.
A friend spoke to Tracy about us years ago and she decided to reach out and seek surgical treatment when her symptoms got truly severe.
“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.”
“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. 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.”
