On a support board for women who have endometriosis I ran across this statement “No, I am not lazy, I am in PAIN. No, I am not addicted to pain meds, there aren't enough in the world to take away my PAIN. AND, NO it is NOT all in MY HEAD!” This sums up the frustration of women who have this painful disease and have yet to be diagnosed or their conditions are not managed correctly by their doctors.
A common procedure to help alleviate this terrible pain is a hysterectomy.

Many times these women are so desperate to end the pain that is plaguing their lives that they don’t ask enough questions and end up in the hands of a doctor who is inexperienced. Any doctor can nick or cut your colon or bowels and not even know it. If your doctor cuts or nicks the bowels, but recognizes the mistake while you are still in surgery, they may avoid what is considered medical malpractice. However when these type of
Surgeries using the da vinci robot have also ended in perforated bowels because of lack of training for doctors and the inability for doctors to see what they are doing.
Our Virginia Beach personal injury firm has handled many perforated and nicked bowel cases and we are sensitive to the pain that our clients suffer. One of our recent clients suffered severe infection and required multiple abdominal "washouts" over the course of several weeks to try and repair the damage. Even after these procedures, our client required two additional surgeries to try and correct the damage from the initial hysterectomy.
