    Dr M accepted my results for NK cells from another specialist and I think it was done on day 9 but said he didn't test as broadly as Dr M would have. When I needed a endo scratch a couple of cycles later Dr M got the tests he needed from that.

    My original appt was in person in Sydney.

    I don't know if Dr M does laparoscopies as he isn't a FS.

    No sorry I don't but the ones you wrote looked right from when he told me the results.

    @pingc383 dr m's fees are about $450 and the auburn day clinic fees with anaesthetist was $800. Others have said they didn't need anaesthetist though.

    Does Dr Reid believe in NKC's? My FS is Michael cooper who works with dr Reid, and he seems to be very sceptical of NKC stuff. Anyway, someone else has recommended Alison gee to me too when considering a FS that'll work with Dr M.

    I just want to send you a big hug

    Firstly only you can make the decision

    I had to cut ties with my fertility specialist due to his ego around doctor m.. again i can only talk from personal experinece

    Dr m does do lap's

    I had a lap, as i did have mild endo symptoms
    Absolutley nothing was found!!

    But i do think its a positive tool to know either way.

    Personally and its only cause i belive in doctor m... wait
    2 weeks is nothing in the terms of ever failing fertility treatment

    I would also like to see alison gee due to her reputation.

    But only you know what's right and what suits your needs.

    I also personally like dr m will look at you both, around alpha matches ect

    Just remember there is no wronflg direction just one you feel comfortable with... just dont rush cause of time

    Ping, that seems expensive.
    My FS believed in issues aswell but he didn't test me for everything and he couldn't read some of the results like T cells as this isn't his field of knowledge. With Dr M they'll take about 14 vials of blood.
    You can probably start with your FSs blood tests for immune issues so you have some results by the time you speak with Dr M but he'll probably send you off for more blood tests.
    Also, everytime I had a biopsy for nkc it was between day 21 and 24.

    @pingc383 I'm not sure about changing FS's as dr cooper is my second one now. I've stuck with him coz he's the endo expert and I have an annoying cervix which he's now worked out, so he knows my body. I spoke to him re. Dr m before I saw him so I haven't gotten back to dr c as I don't have a cycle protocol yet. Dr c did say to be cautious because dr m's protocol is highly medicated eg with steroids which could affect development of baby. So I'll go back to dr c once I've got the NKC stuff sorted and ready for another FET. If he becomes a barrier to what I want to do, only then will I consider Alison.

    I think it is worth doing the lap to search for silent endo. Who you do it with though I dunno... I think dr Reid is more experienced with endo than dr m but dr m is the expert in NKC. If the concern is money, you will prob hit the Medicare threshold really quickly and get 80% back on fees (I have) but if your concern is trying to minimise time and amount of time you need to be opened up, I would probably be frank with dr m and ask him to list all the tests he needs and get dr r to do it coz if you need endo removed he's the one to do it. I completely get your concerns, I have terrible endo and feel like I'm always racing against the clock before the endo comes back and before my already low quality eggs get worse. But I think I just have to accept the fact that removing endo again and again may be my reality

    Good luck with your decision. I know it's so hard, but you're doing everything right in trying to find the solution to your probs. I'm reading dr beers book too and I truly believe this NKC stuff is the solution.
