We did LIT for HLA matches and its $1100 per treatment and you have 2 so it's almost the same price. Plus I will still need intralipids. Everything is so bloody expensive it's overwhelming. Hence this is why it is our last shot at it. No one can afford let alone go through the physical pain of this month after month.
Yes LIT is for HLA matches. They inject your partners blood into you.
So sorry for the questions, but just so I know what to expect, for those of you who have seen Dr M, when he calls for your telephone consult, has he actually read your file before he calls? And if there are some test results already there (like elevated thyroid anti bodies and low positive ANA), does he then put you on some meds pending the results of the additional tests he asks me to run? I don't really want to wait 2-3 weeks for the additional blood test results to come back (is that how long they take?) before he medicates me.. I'd much rather he starts right away... Do any bloods have to go to Chicago? I see on earlier threads he sends bloods to Chicago for testing or has that since changed?
@pingc383 I think you'll find it all takes quite a while. I had my first Skype consult with prof M in July (he did read my file by the way which was a chunky file to read, I was quite impressed)
His standard testing is HLA & DQ testing for you and partner, which took close to 4 weeks to get back, I had biopsy nearly 3 weeks ago and haven't heard back anything in terms of results. I get the feeling they are quite old school.
I guess the thing to keep in mind as this guy has an amazing reputation and tests and looks into things nobody else does. Best to get the full picture of what is going on and coming up with the best game plan to get that take home baby.
I don't do IVF, I haVe no trouble getting pregnant however I've had 4 miscarriages between 5-19 weeks over the last 18 months so I am investigating what could be going on to cause that after I had a healthy baby boy and no previous miscarriages before ttc #2.
I'm just going to wait until Prof M has my follow up appt and we can put a plan in place to try to stop my whatever is ending my pregnancies
But i havent seen it mentioned for a very long time
Ao i assume the testing is still offered here
He medicated me straight after first phone call and ordered more bloods
Follow up phone call i think was 4-5 weeks
But i wasnt.planning on cycling for a few months
Of course he reviewed file, alot during the phone call, but also asked questions regarding my tests
My body needed the break
