Thanks @Velvet16. My appointment is at the end of the week. Feels like I've been waiting for years!!
The risk for cleft palette increases from a 1% chance normally to a 2% chance on prednisone which isn't huge so I was ok taking the increased risk. I was on 25mg at most but I have seen people on higher. I was on dexamethasone until 8 weeks (when placenta takes over) then was switched to pred as it doesn't cross placenta the same.
Just what Dr M prescribed. He tests you and then does a custom plan for you based on individual requirements. I think that's why he is successful. There is no one size fits all.
@Velvet16 - I'm going through the old threads and stumbled on this post of yours. You said you had 1 kind of NKC tested from your biopsy. Do you know what the 4 are that need to be tested? I see you've added the others, but I suspect they are blood tests and I'm interested in the 4 NKCs that need to be tested from a biopsy.High Natural Killer Cells #7
I also have had a biopsy with FS, dr m said my fertility specialist only tested for 1 type of nkc
Dr M, had me test for 56, 57, 8, 4, 19, 25, 4+
The blood lady told me only one vile is needed as its part of the same test
Hang in there!!
I was going to get Dr Reid at Genea to do the lap and biopsy, but he only tests for 2 NKCs and G won't tell me what they all are so I can go and get them tested while I wait for my telephone consult with Dr M...
Just finished reading #7. So read all of #7 and #8 and #9. Going to start on #6.
There sure are a LOT of posts and threads!!
And ended up being irrelevant to my diagnosis (as no one ever mentioned having the same)
But it was so eye opening... and gave me so much hope
