Canadian Considering Surgery In The US

Canadian Considering Surgery In The US

I am a Canadian living in Ontario. It’s been over 2 years now since I was diagnosed and I’m so tired of only being presented with hormones or hysterectomy as my only options. I’ve been on orlissa for a year and three months and don’t want to be on it much longer. Birth control did nothing for me and Lupron is a hard no.

Hello - I live in Niagara and was diagnosed with endo over the past two years after i came off birth control to try and have a baby. I am surprised to hear that’s how you’ve been treated at the endo clinic in Hamilton as I thought they were comprehensive and leading edge - I follow one of their Drs on insta and have been wishing I got referred there, but I guess things aren’t always as they seem, or not all the Drs are up to date with best practice? I was referred to Dr Sabrina Lee in North York (via my fertility Dr in TO) - I have had a phone and in person consult with her. She was understanding, thorough, and reassuring. I am on the list for excision surgery. It was 2-3 months for initial consult and then the surgical wait is 4-6 months, but she said fertility patients are prioritised after cancer patients for her list, so it may be longer for you. This was also before the latest surgical shutdown, so add 1-2 months.
