In a scary episode of “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg shared her terrifying experience with endometriosis, gripping the audience from beginning to end. She expressed her exasperation with the healthcare system by vehemently questioning why women endure years of suffering before receiving a diagnosis. Goldberg, 67, described her own horrifying experience. She ignored the symptoms until they took a worrisome turn after being misdiagnosed with a UTI at first.
“I was unaware of what was happening,” Goldberg admitted, her voice faltering. “All of a sudden, something smelled like cottage cheese and looked like it.” When she added, “I was fortunate enough to get to somebody who said, ‘This is called endometriosis,'” though, things took an unexpected turn. Is Whoopi Goldberg’s admission a coded plea for assistance? She raises issues with the medical education system, which furthers the mystery.
Millions of people have endometriosis, but it takes a painful six to ten years to diagnose. Watch in anticipation as Goldberg adds her name to the list of celebrities who are illuminating this mysterious illness. Does danger still loom, or has she made it through?
