@clucky14 sorry to hear re gastro and also worry about where to get your ultrasound, maybe you can call the primary ivf nurse out of hours number, so they can clarify? I only got the mobile number at the nurse briefing, so not sure if you've got it. It is 0403 501 351. As others have said it is medical imaging not Laverty, I was confused by this too when I started. I was also worried about internal exams but found it so much better than I was expecting. I had all my ultrasounds at the imaging centre in George Street but the FS referred me to Ultrasound Care St Leonard's, for a hycosy, to better see polyps and check tubes clear. Their opening hours aren't on their website but contacts and locations are here ultrasoundcare.com.au/locations hope it helps, as I think most people on this forum know more than me! But I'd ask private ivf nurses as they should know!
I had a run around on my first BT before stimming as I hadn't thought that the Laverty nearest me would be completely closed the first week back in January so ended running about a mile up the road to another one and just getting the BT done at 8.30am which was lucky as had to be done by 9am... I'd definitely ring in advance if its a limited time window.
@Billie2 so pleased you've got your EPU time!!! Thinking of you!! I liked being early morning. Enjoy weekend before then. and how the epu is a good positive experience.
@MissTilly glad you're being positive!!! I love it! You have a great outlook! And I will be mirroring this and wisdom from everyone else when I hopefully get to that stage. Thinking of you and your happy bean!
Agree with @LillyM @VickyP @tjuls @Kookii have said so beautifully about it being a private journey, and that people don't understand till they've been through this. I have now told two friends only and that's going to be it, I think!
@StephG hope you get appointments booked, I had tricky logistics with husband doing fly in fly out work, but managed to book a few appointments on one day a month and a half ahead and then clarify a few weeks before.
Thanks to everyone for well wishes on polyp surgery! Went ahead fine today, no pain, up early to get 6am train but then a lot of lying on trolleys with warm blanket unlike epu where you walk into theater and hop on the bed! General anesthetic kicked in immediately, woke up definitely slurred! Hung around till 4pm as friend unable to pick me up before then (DH overseas for work), but went out for nice dinner with her, and now insomnia so hanging out with you guys! Won't know results and next step until I get gynae report, but I've already been calling his PA to make sure I get the results by 25 Feb in time for FS appointment when hopefully I'll get some clarity on FET timing, March or later.
Best wishes to everyone and. those i haven't name checked ... Time for more sleep I think now!!
