    Default Dr Warren De Ambrosis - Wazza appreciation thread

Thanks in advance!
    @BlondeinBrisvegas - I'm sorry this is my first cycle with Wazza so I can't help you with that one. I hope you were able to find out!
    I did intralipids with Wazza. (@ the infusion clinic in St Andrews). They use 500ml/20% (and saline) which is what is generally recommended.
    In my first cycle using it before and after Tx we got our first ever BFP after 7 failed fresh cycles. I wholeheartedly believe it gave us our BFP. We had a few bleeds along the way and I believe the Intralipids are what helped us get through. I had three doses before Tx and kept having them every 10 days until 14 weeks. It takes about 4 hours each time for the infusion so be prepared (with a good book). The nurses down there (particularly Jane) are fabulous and became like 'old friends' along the way. Cheering you on as you reach each milestone. The facilities there are good and they will feed you morning tea and lunch depending on what time you are there.

    Thanks so much @Blinky76 and congrats on the twinnies!! How exciting!! Do you mind if I ask how much the infusions cost? I have read they can be pretty expensive?

    It's done at St Andrews private hospital in Spring hill at their day infusion clinic as an inpatient (like day surgery). I have private health insurance so just paid my hospital excess ($500) once for the first time and then it was covered by the PHI after that with no extra payments. I had (*i think) about 12 -14 infusions all up.
    The way Wazza has it set up means you don't pay the exorbitant costs that others do with other doctors as theirs tend to be done at their clinics and they can't claim through PHI.

    Forgot to mention if you do it as part of an IVF cycle your first one will be done at the spring hill day hospital as part of your EPU.

    @Blinky76 that's awesome thankyou so much. Such a relief. First cycle with Wazza and it is already so different to anything I've done before. With all the supps and things leading up to egg pickup. I'm really hoping it makes the difference. For someone my age my egg quality seems not great as I don't tend to have many for transfer.

    Hi,

    I'm new to this and have my first appt next week. Just wondering if anyone has had help with recurrent chemical pregnancy/miscarriage and been successful? We aren't doing IVF at the moment as we seem to be able to fall just not stay pregnant beyond the first couple of weeks.

    Hi @wishing25, welcome to bubhub. Wazza is an amazing man who undoubtably will have a plan for you. If @Ladydee is around she might have some insight for you. I know she had multiple miscarriages but has just had a beautiful bubba with Wazzas help.
