@PreciousHeart, thanks so much for your reply hun and congratulations! Wow, 8 weeks already! i have heard neupogen could help with lining, so will ask Dr M about it. Do you mind telling me what treatment you had? I have high CD57 (around 16%) . Is that really bad? could it be treated?
@PreciousHeart, my high CD57 is in my blood. Not sure about my uterus. Just out of curiosity, do you have any allergy? I had pretty bad Eczema a couple of months ago and also have on and off hay fever symptoms. Not sure if they are related to immune issues.
I don't think we have a match. I uploaded the DQ alpha result here a couple of days ago and don't know how to interpret it. I'll PM you the photos maybe you can help me? What is IVIG? Is it injection or infusion?
no I don't have any allergies but yes they might be an immune reaction... I can't read the match results either! I got ours and what I thought was the match, when Nick sent his letter what the match was, I was completely wrong! IVIG is infusion, it takes quite a few hours same as intralipid... who is your FS?
@PreciousHeart, I'm seeing Dr Lynn Burmeitster in Melb, but i had a phone consult with Dr M in Sydney a couple of weeks ago. He explained the result to me very briefly. I want a bit more info though. I might call him again tomorrow to see if I can schedule a face to face app with him. Did you do your IVF with Dr M? Do you live in Syd?
Dr M doesn't do IVF - he works on the immune issues only. You choose you own FS
Hi SophJ no IVF with Dr M, he is a reproductive immunologist and OBGYN. LB is good but not as up or believing in immune issues and treatments as Nick Lolatgis. Regardless of what matches they are, if you have any you will need the LIT and only Nick and Dr M do it - if I were you I'd consider switching to Nick or at least consult with him outside of Monash (and stick to LB with Monash if you prefer) to get him to do the LIT for you as your partner needs to give blood on the morning you get the injections in the afternoon - so it's very expensive if you come to Sydney for it - also Nick is cheaper for LIT, IVIG and intralipid. I would take Dr M's protocol and do the treatments in Melbourne through Nick, save you a lot of time, hassle and money. I am with Nick for IVF, live in Sydney and did LIT with Dr M as easier than going to Melbourne for it, you can do the opposite! xxx
