    Hopefully you've gotten some info by now Steph? I also didn't have a lot of bleeding after my surgeries but I had a lot of tissue pass initially (from scar tissue which was cut away).

    Thanks Starf1sh!
    Professor V told me that there was some scar tissue at my cervix. He cut it and applied the healing gel.
    I had some questions, so I emailed Megan on the weekend. She forwarded my email to Prof V and he replied my email straight away I'm so impressed!
    Girls, just wondering what post-op instructions you got after the surgery. Are we supposed to have bed rest? Or we can carry life as normal? Did you have any stretchy or heavy feeling in your lower ab? It's not really pain, just that stretchy heavy feeling. Hopefully it's just in my mind

    Hi @Amps,
    I haven't been here in a really long time and I was sorry to read that your AS may have recurred after your daughters birth. This was unfortunately also my experience. I see your post was in April, how did things go? xx

    Hi ladies
    I have been following this thread for the last year or so as I've been dealing with my own ashermans problems and thought I'd say hi. This thread has been so helpful as I tried to navigate the medical minefield on the way to treatment and I can't thank you enough for all the knowledge and advice I've been able to glean from here. I've now had 2 surgeries with Prof V, the most recent with PRP therapy in August and honestly believe I'd still be trying to get a diagnosis if I hadn't found this thread.
    I am now 7 weeks pregnant (naturally) and cautiously optimistic, but again find myself wondering where I go to next for care, which is complicated by the fact that I'm moving from Sydney (where prof V was able to provide recommendations) to Canberra where I don't have a medical network at all. Are all post-Ashermans pregnancies considered high risk? I have booked in with an obstetrician but am not sure I can actually afford it, however obviously don't want to jeopardise anything if that's really the best route to take. Does anyone have any pointers? Anyone gone through the public system, or is private the best with this condition?

    Congratulations on your pregnancy Ninasan!!!

    The severity of your AS is usually related to your level of pregnancy 'risk', with the main concerns generally being placental complications or incompetent cervix (which can both be closely monitored by a private OB). Prof V should be able to give you an idea of any potential risks specific to your case. Also some good info on pregnancy risks on www.ashermans.org.

    For me personally, my post AS pregnancy was considered 'high risk' (as I'd had stage 3/4 AS, many dilations of the cervix/surgeries and a number of prior miscarriages) however none of the complications we monitored for ever eventuated. I consider myself very lucky however I had the reassurance of an OB with experience with AS.

    Good luck with your decision and I hope this is your sticky one xx

    Thanks so much Starfish.

    I have decided to see how my first appointment with the OB goes and trust my instincts from there. Their reception staff weren't able to tell me anything about her experience with cases like mine so I'll have to wait to speak with her in person. I am hoping she has had successful outcomes with patients with ashermans before, and will try my best to suss out her knowledge before committing. That sounds awful, but I don't want to risk anything by misplacing trust in ill qualified doctors. If I don't feel confident I'll ask my GP to refer me to the high risk maternity unit at the public hospital for assessment.

    The horrible nausea I've been experiencing for the last week and a half seems to have suddenly vanished, which has me a little concerned. I have a spare ultrasound referral burning a hole in my hands that I'm tempted to go and have to try to alleviate this stress.

    I think I've aged a whole year in the last month alone with all the worry!
