“I will take good care of you.” These are the reassuring words Dr. Anil spoke to me before my robotic surgery. And take good care of me he did.
I had endometriosis and for a while, I was able to treat my pain and bleeding with pain relievers and other medications. I coped with my symptoms and most days I was able to push through the pain and carry on my normal activities, accepting this lower quality of life. When I could no longer bear it, I discussed my options with Dr. Anil and decided robotic surgery would be the most beneficial option for me. Because this surgery is minimally invasive, I had less blood loss, less pain, and a shorter recuperation time.
Dr. Anil explained all the details of the procedure, and I felt totally confident in his hands. He truly brought a sense of caring into this surgery, answered all my questions upfront, and put my mind at peace. Everything went smoothly from check in, to surgery, to recovery. I stayed overnight in the hospital and Dr. Anil came to check on me and even called me at home the next day. After the surgery, I experienced some abdominal tenderness but overall very slight pain due to the minimally invasive nature of this surgery. During my recovery, I took some time off work and was careful about lifting anything heavy. After a follow-up session with Dr. Anil, I am back to work and enjoying life to the fullest.
It’s only been a short time since my surgery, but already it has exceptionally improved my quality of life. The biggest thing is that I don’t have to worry about my symptoms unexpectedly sneaking up on me anymore. I am confident in exercising, vacationing with my family and doing everything I want to do without limitations.
Using robotic surgery was one of the best decisions I have made for myself. I highly recommend robotic surgery and Dr. Anil to anyone who may be experiencing symptoms similar to mine.
