A Cure

Using the term “cure” in relation to endometriosis is complicated. If, following excision surgery, a patient regains her quality of life with the elimination of pain, never requires pain medication, and is able to have one or more children, should we say she is cured? Or should we instead say that she has been treated successfully? No matter what terminology we use, the only thing that matters to me is that, after excision surgery, patients are able to live their lives the way they want to live them.
