September 2010

Sept 2010: No TEBB. thanks to Biaxin Yeah! CD 3, some big cysts were still there. =( CD 15, us showed a nice follie in the middle of the cysts. The Dr told me to trigger. I was surprised. I added menopur to the ovidrel in the hopes that the extra LH in the menopur would help. CD18, us showed follicle collapsing, but unsure of what that means. He had me take a PIO shot the night before, so maybe that affected things.  Blood work was P: 31.9 and E 521  The nurse saw something solid on my right ovary and did not know what it was. UGH.....

PIO shots

In September, my dr ordered an Intramuscular PIO shot for the first time. My husband gave it to me and injected me in the wrong spot. He got too close to my sciatic nerve. I had severe leg pain and I could barely walk. It was a deep muscle/ligament pain that stopped my leg from functioning. It was not just a sore muscle ache.  I was limping for two weeks. I could not cross my legs, I could not get into the car without crying, it hurt so bad to swing my leg over. I want to warn you, if you are going to take these shots, to make sure that you get the right spot.So here is a great picture of a cartoon butt, that shows the correct spots. This is for medical/educational purposes.
