What Is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a painful condition which can affect anyone with a uterus. It causes tissue similar to what usually lines the endometrium (uterus) to grow outside the uterus. This lining can grow around the pelvic and reproductive organs, including the ovaries and fallopian tubes, though it can also affect other organs. Like the usual endometrium lining, this tissue sheds regularly, but it has no way to leave the body, so over time scarring and excess tissue can develop around organs, which in some cases can cause organs and pelvic tissue to stick together and surgery may be needed to separate organs again.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately.
