Today is CD9. I went in for US and BW. I have two follicles on my left, 16 and 13. (no stims) This is great news because my left ovary is clean and happy. The right one is a mess. I am getting the intralipid infusion done on Monday. A nurse is coming to my house to set up the IV. It will take about 3 hours. My RI uses Trinity Home Care which is part of Walgreen's pharmacy. This will take about 3 hours. Having a home nurse is great becuase I do not have to take off from work. She is coming at 3:30. This company is great. They were very helpful and prompt. I got set up and then they shipped me the meds and supplies today. Then they called to make sure I got the box becuase ups said they left it at the front office at my job.
They included everything needed from alcohol, gloves, needles, gauze, tape, tubes, etc to start the IV. They even included the pole! (I have not assembled it yet.) Then they also sent me a kit to administer epinephrine in case I have an allergic reaction to the intralipids. Wow! I could not believe all the stuff they sent. I thought I had a lot of supplies with my needles and sharps containers, but this was amazing.
The best part.............drum roll.................................
It was free!!!! I did not believe it until I saw the packing slip. The Dr coded it under immune issues and my insurance covered it. So even though the RI is kind of pricey, I am starting to see that he is worth it, becuase I read that the intralipids can cost a minimum of 200.
So everything looks great so far. My ovary is behaving.I go back on Monday for another US scan.
I just pray that I only need one dose of intralipids to bring down my NK and magic happens.
(Here is a photo of all the supplies. The intralipids are in the fridge.)
