HRrmm typed a whole thing out then found it logged me out and lost the page...
Mater called back and said if I continue with my appt with public in town here to get referral they can do CVS on Tuesday and bulk bill. When I asked who would do it he said "one of us". TUrn around for FISH is 48-72 hours.
Unfortunately Dr Carmody cannot do it Monday as he is not in but can do it Tuesday so they were right it is no faster if I kick and thrash about. The better part is, I can use my Nuchal referral to see Dr Carmody and he can self refer me based on my risk for the CVS so I do not need to bounce off anyone anymore. Also their results are usually in by the following working day afternoon. IT appears the most it will cost is approx $280 without safety net. This doesnt include Nuchal scan I dont think which I was going to have separately anyway
If they find that there are visible markers in Nuchal scan they will not bother with the CVS, especially if he has Enencephaly (maybe based on missing head in other scan)..this is important because some hospitals will not let you terminate based on FISH results unless visible signs in scan. I have not researched the ocurrance of conflicting results in FISH vs final.
Overall I did not want to spend more money but I just felt better speaking to the Wesley people, less like a cow. Neither the hospital in town here or Mater could understand what the hurry was, how it FEELS to wait..it did not enter the equation, even though it will not move any faster but results will be my feeling was like I need a gentle touch, I am sure the Mater are good and have done thousands but, I am broken
Only thing not sure of is that Mater has clear communications with public hospital here as to what to do after confirmation just send me straight back to hospital but not sure about Dr Carmody there seemed like a few options but at least they listened to me and understood my distress and agreed its a dreadful dreadful thing and they will help me to do what needs to be done in a compassionate manner
Further, Sonographer at Wesley said she had only once seen Aneuploidy Detected T21 on NIPS come back normal, and the Dr at Mater said, prepare yourself it is most likely DS so noone is giving me any false hope
Maybe some information there is of interest to someone down the track
Thanks for listening today
