Ladies has anyone had a scratch of the endometrium??
Ladies has anyone had a scratch of the endometrium??
@Annerley oh fingers xd its over soon, it must be hard being in the limbo...
with my ectopic all my levels were fine, I was 2 days off my dating scan when I had terrible pain and a bit of spotting.. ending up in ER then transferred to OB next morning, scanned and confirmed pregnancy wasn't in utero... We tried the injection, but my levels were increasing... then exactly a week from my first ER admission DH rushed me back to hospital.. Tube had ruputured and i had internal bleeding... as soon as the imaging was opened & surgeon available I had surgery to stop bleeding and was told my ovary was saved, but tube and pregnancy removed.... and had believed that and told every FS since lol ...
I think they gave me all the info in post op, im just a bit hazy coz i dont recover from GA very well... Im not actually sure now what I do next, I have my FET plan but I don't think im ready yet... Wow i've not even considered that its grown back.. FS did have a photo of it, showed me the piece missing, which would make sense if it burst... so frustrating...
had a follow up with Dr M the immune specialist in syd via phone, he says my NKC is high... and aggreed that having the inflammed right tube would not have been any good for so long... so he's recommending higher doses of steroids and intralipids than i've had already.
@sunny79 good to have a plan, def makes things easier. I've had a couple of endo scratches, they're not the most pleasant thing... worse than transfer / pap smear highly suggest taking some pain meds before hand. xx
Hi Old friends, just a little update from me. Im stimming 2nd round & had my first scan today at CD8. I have 6 mature follies with 17 all up (5 mature on the left! C'mon righty). My next scan is Friday with EPU Monday. They are definately stretching me out this time. Im already bloated & sore belly from the thick centrotide needle. Wish me luck!!! Got to beat last cycles sad 2 eggs collected! xx
@sunny79 no when we saw the fs he said no reason for it not to work....... yes lovely response from a fs your paying $$$ to see and ask questions. So we are going back to our old clinic where we got ds as we still have 6 frozen embryos there. We see that fs on the 22nd so I don't know if she will want to do any tests. And because we got our medical notes from clinic theres **** in there they didn't even tell us, my best embryo was a 2A the others were 3s i dunno why they wouldn't tell us that info when we asked especially when it's there. So not impressed with that clinic!
Katt1011 I hope you get a better response from your old clinic.
Good luck billie2 - come on eggies!
Afm we have the scratch on the 23rd. Have decided not to pgd test the lest 2 embryos, dh wants to just proceed and if we end up doing another epu after these last 2 we would test anything else we are lucky enough to get.
I am just about done with ivf. I am entertaining the idea of one more epu but still not completely sure. I don't want to do this to my mind and body anymore.
@sunny79 This is our last full stim cycle. We are doing IVF as a last ditch effort for a sibling and maybe have closure. I was devastated our last cycle produced 1 embryo. Id love frosties to keep the dream alive. Just a freshie to stick would be heaven. Ive been stimming for 8 days now, and EPU isnt till Monday. They are stretching me out this round. Im now ice packing my belly after the Puregon and Centrotide injections every night. My belly is sore. If we were childless Id do it every month. But we have a healthy 8yr old and we have limits and have to think of him first. Today he asked why Im putting needles in my stomach, despite never seeing me do it. He has picked up my sore & bleeding belly with the yellow sharps bin and my Puregon pen kit I grab from the fridge every night. Poor kid thinks I am sick. Thats not good to play on his mind. And we cant be honest with him as he wont understand if it doesnt work. I dont even understand why it doesnt always work!
Oh Billie2. You can't hide anything from kids. So hard to explain to him.
I hope that this epu and transfer give you a very easy way to explain what has been going on.
Dh and I don't have any kids but I am just not a long term ivf'er. He copes better than me, but the hormones/stress have had a big toll on me. I just feel like life is for living and we don't know what tomorrow will bring - ivf has had me in a holding pattern for 12 months revolving around this beast that I can't control and it steals my mind and money!! And steals waaay too much of my time (on bh and dr Google!)
@Sunny i totally understand i am in the same boat as you with trying to give my ds a sibling. Our 6 frozen are our last hope.
Hopefully we will all get lucky everyone elsw seems to be getting there bfp which makes this so much harder. I know all you can relate. I am so hating other threads at the moment everyone is getting there bfp and i had my third failed fet in january. Like you ladies im over it and the stress of it.
I do have a laugh for you though i am having such a **** of a time trying to get my rebate back from fet even medicare hates my old clinic because of how they do their billing hahaha.
Hi @katt1011 ! Six is a good number to have for safe keeping. I bet theres a few siblings in there! Do you use baby aspirin post transfer?
Well scan #2 is in. I have 5 mature follies. Never one to over achieve on here. Ha! So EPU may be Monday.. Not sure, will get the call this afternoon. Im tired, Im 39 in 2 weeks, and just want a win for a change.
