Michelle was diagnosed with Endometriosis in mid-2016 after a Hawaii surgeon used a laser to cauterize lesions and spots in her abdomen. The diagnosis came many years after Michelle first began to experience endo symptoms, which included heavy bleeding during menstrual cycles, excruciating pain that would interfere with school and work, digestion issues, pain during intercourse and hormonal imbalances.
She is preparing for her second endometriosis excision surgery in February.
