@gorgeousgeorge - thank you so much gorgeous lady, that was an exceptionally helpful post!! I don't want to be the recipient of scar tissue if the endo is not bad, so I'm not going to go ahead with a lap. I was a bit unsure cos when I saw Dr Reid at Genea, he told me to get it checked out etc, but then he may have been talking about stage 4 as opposed to stage 1. Great, that now makes thinks a lot easier for me!! I'll just do a biopsy and a hysterscopy with a lipodial flush!
Thanks so much for taking the time out to write that all, you're an absolute sweetheart! That honestly helped me make my decision. Thank you once again. I hope one day I can give you pearls of wisdom
Monday 10.30 is not far!!!!!!!!! Two more sleeps! I'd be freaking excited!!!!
As for @gorgeousgeorge, one more sleep to go!!!!!!!!!!!
That hamper sounds mighty fancy @tuxcat! You obviously make a beautiful and thoughtful recipient.
I remember the CT girls talking about writing the thank you cards over on the SA thread about a year back. It can tricky and emotional as it stirs up so much. I know it took me a few drafts to get it 'right'. I don't think you can go too far wrong speaking from the heart. Good luck!
I'm here - just! My BFF had a house full of baby gear - cot, change table, cradle, car seats, bath, linen etc. It was all stored at her rental property 3 1/2 hours away which is about to be rented out, so we've been out driving all day to collect it. We only just got home actually.
It's not in the house - I told DH to store it in the shed. Don't want to jinx myself. It's beautiful quality furniture but has some mould on it from being out in a shed for 3 years. DH is stoked that he now has a restoration project - he will sand them back and re-finish them which he assures will bring them up to brand new.
Has been a big day because I am cramping hard from the Progynova - I think?
Anyway, thanks for asking after me. Congrats on your surprise single transfer, and @PING, sorry your appointment didn't go quite to plan.
Off for some Chinese for tea and a lie down, but will be back tomorrow. Hugs to all, xxx
pingc383 thats ok your welcome :-) , just to clarify coz i didnt write it clearly, the 'scar tissue' i was talking about isnt from the effects of the surgery, thats one of the physical effects of endo, i.e. what endo "looks like" coz its your endometrial lining basically growing in places outside your uterus, so coz its grows where its not supposed to your immune system mistakenly attacks it (hence the heightened immune 'response', like your immune system is switched on as if you're sick) but as the immune system attacks the lining it can turn the lining into scar tissue type stuff, and so each month when your lining grows in response to your hormones, then so does the stuff outside the uterus, then it turns to tissue or lesions etc, etc...
Lol, ironically fs told me, you know whats the best thing for suppressing endometriosis?
Frucking, pregnancy. Baahaahaa.
(Coz you stop getting the hormones to make your lining for 9 months)
So anyway, i was figuring, you're not gonna do the endo excision surgery in the hope of trying and waiting for 6 months for a natural bfp anyway, so even if you had really bad endo, youd still just go and do ivf anyway mate. IVF was the 'solution' they suggested coz i have endo. So, i reckon you could strike at least one worry completely off the list. Most esp. coz wazza said that too.
Ok think ive found a donor i like now just need to email the person in the morning to ensure shes avail and willing.
