In a recent EndoTV episode hosted by Diana Falzone, we heard Jenna Bosi's powerful and inspiring story. Jenna, who has faced the challenges of endometriosis, adenomyosis, and abnormal cells related to cervical cancer, shared her journey of perseverance, self-advocacy, and finally finding relief.
Jenna's story began with years of misdiagnoses, skepticism from medical professionals, and the emotional toll of being accused of mental health issues. Despite facing these challenges, she continued to push for answers, going through multiple procedures and surgeries, each offering temporary relief but no lasting solution.
One significant turning point in Jenna's journey was the refusal of a hysterectomy, a decision that left her feeling unheard and desperate for relief. She shared her experience of grappling with the emotional toll of multiple miscarriages and the impact it had on her mental health. Despite facing roadblocks, Jenna's determination led her to seek a supportive medical professional who understood her situation.
The frustration and emotional trauma Jenna experienced highlight the need for increased awareness and understanding of endometriosis within the medical community. Jenna's call for doctors to treat women with dignity and empathy is a powerful reminder of healthcare professionals' responsibility in shaping the patient experience.
Through her candid conversation with Diana Falzone, Jenna emphasized the importance of self-advocacy. She urged others facing similar obstacles to trust their instincts, reminding them they know their bodies better than anyone else. Jenna's advice resonates with those struggling to find their voice in a healthcare system that sometimes fails to fully understand the complexities of endometriosis.

"And so I tell a lot of women it is not our lot to suffer. And there'll be a lot of people who will make you feel like it is. And that's just doing a huge disservice to yourself and to all the other women. So it is not your job to be in pain all the time. It is not your job to pretend like it's not that bad. And so stop being so nice and stop being so courteous to everybody else and just really hold all the space that you need for the pain that you're going through."
