After sitting on the bench for the past three months, I'm finally going getting back into the game. In case you are just tuning in, I took off some time to get more tests run and had a hyteroscopy where they removed tons of tiny polyps.
Today is CD3 I had my baseline US apt. My favorite nurse was there so I was able to request her. She is so wonderful and it makes such a difference. She takes her time with me. There are some nurses who are tired of seeing me and rush. She is thorough and respects that I am going natural etc. I have a big history with lufs and cysts. I was worried what crazy stuff my ovaries had been up to since I had not seen them in 3 months.
She took a good look and then did not see any cysts. I was so excited. This is a rare treat for me. YEAH. That probably means I ovulated on my own last month, which is huge since I did not take a trigger.....YEAH. I am so glad that I am starting off right. She checked both ovaries and they both have some small buds. My right ovary that is covered with an endometrioma and only has a sliver of tissue left also had some buds. I cannot express how thrilled I am that my ovaries behaved.
This week I will take antibiotics. I started taking them for my TEBB. Even though it has not returned in the last 3 months, I decided to take the ab just in case. I start neupogen for my NK cells and lovenox for my 5 blood clotting issues this weekend. So two shots to the belly. ugh. I go back next week for a follicle check. Then we see when I take my trigger.
I can't help getting my hopes up. It is nuts,but this is such a good sign that I have to go with it.
I wanted to schedule a follow up with the fancy reproductive immunologist in NYC. I have had lots of new tests run since last June when I last spoke with him. Since I live hours away, I always did phone consults. He would charge 350 but then only speak to me for 5 min.This time I wanted to get more time to go over them properly. Plus, I would be able
to see what he is doing. Is he reading my chart, or staring out the
window? I figured I would get better service face to face
I had my DH call bc I cannot stand dealing with his office staff. Well, it seems that this Dr has decided to drop out of network. This means that now I will have to pay the same amount if I go in person or not. I told my DH that I still want to go face to face to get the most out of my money. Also if I go in person my dh will go with me.
I know it sounds nuts that I would put up with all of his nonsense, but he is brilliant and is up on the newest stuff. He is the one who suggested a lupron trigger which was a huge breakthrough for me. I am at the end of my road here, so I need someone who is willing to try anything. My napro dr found inflammation in my uterus so I need to address that.
