    S4E4 - Be Pee Free - A conversation with Kelly Newton, creator of leak-proof incontinence knickers

    37:45

    Welcome to today's episode of Not Defined by Endo Podcast! Today’s episode is with Kelly Newton, who founded BP3 Underwear in 2019. Kelly founded BP3 as a result of her issues with bladder incontinence as she entered menopause. We know that many young women with Endometriosis, Interstitial cystitis, and even those in postpartum also have bladder issues, and Kelly soon realized that all of these women could use her knickers both for their periods and leaks and incontinence. Kelly also has a fascinating story about her endometriosis and I really had so much fun getting to know her.

    S4E3 - Endometriosis: Under-funded & Under-researched - A conversation with Endometriosis South Coast Advocate and Research Student, Jodie Hughes

    31:04

    Welcome to today's episode of Not Defined by Endo Podcast! Today’s episode is with Jodie Hughes, the founder of the charity Endometriosis South Coast in the UK, and a Ph.D. student studying how endometriosis differs in different sample groups of people. Jodie’s endometriosis story begins at the tender age of 11, and like many of us, she has had to navigate a behemoth healthcare system, advocating for herself and others and raising awareness about the disease. Endometriosis is such a poorly-funded and poorly-researched disease, and Jodie is working hard to change this by devoting her life to studying the impact of Endo. For her undergraduate and master's studies, she researched the stress levels of patients with endometriosis and was able to obtain statistically significant results in both studies. Apart from doing research on Endo, she also founded the all-inclusive charity called Endometriosis South Coast, supporting and educating those with endometriosis by running webinars and support groups.  Here is the link to Jodie's survey - https://roehamptonuniversity.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/a-study-on-the-effects-of-location-ethnicity-and-care-app Remember that I am not a healthcare professional, so whatever I share on this podcast is to inspire and empower you to take control of your health and your bodies.

My purpose in this mini-series is to talk about all the aspects of endometriosis, right from proper definition to treatment methods and even myths that are pandered about the disease. I am so privileged to be joined today by Mr. Thomas Bainton, the Endometriosis Fellow and a senior registrar in obstetrics and gynecology at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, in London, UK.  Last episode we discussed the surgical treatments for Endometriosis, and why the gold-standard treatment for Endometriosis is excision surgery to remove the disease completely. We also understood the different surgical approaches based on the kind of Endometriosis, whether an endometrioma, peritoneal endo or even deep infiltrating bowel endometriosis.

    S3E4 (Endo 101) - Surgical Treatment of Endometriosis

    53:00

    Welcome to episode 4 of Endo 101! Endo 101 is a mini-series that seeks to inform and educate on the enigma that is Endometriosis. My purpose in this mini-series is to talk about all the aspects of endometriosis, right from proper definition to treatment methods and even myths that are pandered about the disease. I am so privileged to be joined today by Mr. Thomas Bainton, the Endometriosis Fellow and a senior registrar in obstetrics and gynecology at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, in London, UK.  The last episode we discussed the path from symptoms to diagnosis and really went into the different hormonal treatment options for Endometriosis. Today, we will be talking about surgical treatments for Endometriosis, and why the gold-standard treatment for Endometriosis is excision surgery to remove the disease completely. It is also very important to understand that there are many factors that can require your doctors to offer various other treatments other than surgery. This could depend on your situation, for example, the desire to have children which means your fertility has to be treated as a priority, the location of the disease, e.g. if it is Deep Infiltrating bowel disease that could be complex and potentially require a colostomy bag, and so on. One thing that is very important is to understand all your options, and why your doctor thinks a particular approach is the best one for you. So join us again on this episode as Tom breaks it all down for us!
