Pelvic Pain Consult Ft Myers, FL
This problem-related visit evolves from a frequent symptom affecting the relationships, both at work/school AND at home, of multiple women.
Our visit will involve again a thorough history and physical, both lag and Xray studies, and likely return appointments for results or further tests (a second exam, cultures etc). The etiology or reason for your pain will be addressed and it may be purely Gynecological (ENDOMETRIOSIS, OVARIAN CYSTS, PELVIC INFLAMMATORY DISEASE, ECTOPIC PREGNANCY) or involve other anatomical sources (your GI tract/Colon, Urinary System, Scar tissue/Adhesions).
Occasionally, Emergent Surgery is necessary(Severe pain or Ectopic Pregnancy). Otherwise, at our follow-up, we may simply observe & reevaluate or discuss Pharmacologic Treatments (OCP’s, LUPRON Injections, Antiinflammatories, etc) OR Surgical Evaluation/Treatment.
Surgical Evaluation will likely be with a LAPAROSCOPY (small abdominal incisions, looking with a camera and treating diseased areas, done in the hospital and mostly outpatient or overnight stay). Further or continued treatments or more involved surgeries are always a possibility. We will educate you regarding your choices and strive for resolution or improvement of your problem yielding a return to peace & productivity in your life.
