    Hi ladies, I am late for the party. I was traveling all day yesterday and saw the posts. Internet was acting up so gave up replying.
    @Femmefatal: welcome to the thread. I saw your initial posts on the other less active azoo thread. I think your dh is operated by a different FS than jenniwithanl. I didn't know there are two FS doing mTESE in Melbourne. That's fantastic. From zero to 2. As usual, Perth is so far behind in all these.

    from 6 to 14 mature eggs!!! Your FS rocks. I was so disappointed that I only got 5 mature after bumping the meds. Sometime I did wonder what if I could produce more and the scientist would try harder for funding the sperms in the lab. I know I have to let it go. In a way, @Jenniwithanl: your FS approach is probably good. I wish I could have a second chance.
    @Malak: for your own benefit, perhaps you should ask exactly what kind of procedure they are performing. Sometime I feel like we need to take this into our own hands. If it is needle aspiration, that's ok. If TESE, you really have to think twice.
    Ie: perhaps asking if needle biopy is possible first. But of course, it is up to you.
    @bertie: have been thinking of you. How r u doing?
    @Jenniwithanl: will reply the PM.

    All the best everyone.

    I just rang and it they said it is a TESA.

    In regards to TESE vs M- TESE what is the recovery times for both? That is what will make a decision because of DH new job with no leave for 12 months. He has an office job where he stands most of that day if that helps.

    TESA is done under local anaesthesia so in and out the office with minimal pain. If I understand correctly, there is no difference in the recovery time between TESE and mTESE because both are open biopsy. It depends on individual. My DH didn't take the pain killer or use the ice pack (not sure if he was pretending to be strong or really wasn't bad). He avoided much walking for a good 4 days, mainly lying on sofa and working on the laptop. On day 5, he went to the clinic with me for the transfer. He had to walk slow and funny. As far as sitting, he had no choice but sat through the flight back to Perth on day 6 after the procedure. He was OK to sit just not feeling comfortable (whatever that means). No pain. The uncomfortable went away 2 weeks later. He was back to work a week later (including weekend).

    To be honest, I would go for the most successful procedure, ie mTESE. Because you don't want to choose TESE and mTESE on a different time. Minimal 6 months is the time you have to wait for it to repeat again. Also, I can't imagine to get cut twice. So brave to those who did!! (Jenni and others lady dh!!). But it depends on your DH diagnosis with the TESA. Hopefully you won't have to think about this prob!

    Thank you for that @bbhope. If there isn't any difference in recovery time between the TESE and M-TESE then he would be better doing M-TESE. I do have my fingers crossed that they will find some with the TESA though. He has just finished his first bottle of Menevit and I got him another bottle. You never know if it will increase the chances of finding some sperm

    Malak... the mTESE that my DH had is exactly the same as described by Bbhope, however my DH did use quite a bit of ice (which really helped the pain and swelling). My DH did have both the TESA first, then a bit later the TESE, and eventually the mTESE. His TESE was nothing at all compared to some other's experiences. It was just done in the specialist's surgery under local anaesthetic - it involved a small cut, and a small grab of tissue - he was totally fine the next day.

    @MGCBertie: your DH is incredible (and other ladies DH who did the TESE + mTESE). It is such an invasive procedure. DH won't even think about mTESE again even if Dr G is willing to do a 2nd round. I didn't ask........Well, be fair. DH did get butchered once when he was a kid so mTESE is considered his second surgery. He was old enough to remember that.

    Also, other than Dr.G, FS told me that there is a new urologist joining DrG at IVFA. She is also doing mTESE.

    I am so sorry to hear femmefetal. I so know how you feel when DrG came out of the theatre and delivered the bad. I had a few tears before they rolled me in for EPU. I woke up from the epu and didn't even bothered to look at how many eggs they got. I left another few tears and just couldn't get out of bed. They left me to deliver the bad news to dh at the recovery room.

    Take good care of yourself and dh. You both need it. Azoospermia is such a harsh reality for anyone to endure. It takes yrs to come to term. Many of us have been on this journey for a long time. If you need to vent, just say it here on the forum or PM. Perhaps not thinking what's next now. Hugs.
