Dr Warren De Ambrosis - Wazza appreciation thread
mummymaybe, what great follie numbers and sizes, congratulations you must be thrilled!! I hope Wazza's regime shakes up your cycle enough to produce a lovely number of quality embryo's......so far it definitely seems like it is! How's your poor belly holding up? I tried a leg jab but it was bloody painful! I find I accidentally bump that bruise more than my belly ones too. My last three belly jabs have just come up with the red dot and no bruise so hopefully I'm getting the knack of it or my body is getting used to it or something.... they have been higher up my lower belly than the others too so, maybe that has helped?
As for the Pregnyl, this is my first time on it too so I have no idea really. I've heard other ladies say it takes about 4/5 days to work back out of your system depending on your metabolism or something. I'm still thinking this is a BFN cycle so I figure I may as well POAS and test the Pregnyl out of my system so I'll know for next cycle how long it takes for me. My current FS wanted me to have my beta bloods on Tuesday but he doesn't know Wazza has put me on Pregnyl and my paperwork from Wazza says to wait until at least 7 days post last Pregnyl shot to ensure true/accurate blood results so, I've stalled my clinic until Thursday saying I didn't want to find out at work.....which is kinda true anyway. I hate finding out bad news at work and then having to stay all nice and chirpy around patients who definitely don't need to feel any weird vibes off me because of my own issues when their's are 1000 times worse. It sucks having to wait two extra days though!!!
Your poor DH, it must be darn stressful being under pressure like that for sure. Is he able to start collecting a few samples leading up to EPU and QFG can defrost the best one?? By the sounds if what KtKing said, it doesn't sound fun Goodluck for your scan/bloods on Tuesday and even better luck for your EPU!!! Xxx
AFM - maybe a teeny bit lighter? Hope that means the Pregnyl is on it's way out. Let's see what tomorrow brings....

Ladydee sorry the leg jab hurt more, I've had a few that have only come up with little red lumps but plenty more are huge bruises. The TWW wait is so hard but you are almost there. The 2 extra days will be worth it to give you a definite answer.
DH usually does freeze ahead of cycles but this time the 2 samples we have managed to get have been to small to freeze.
I'm really happy with my follicles, I guess it proves that we have made the right decision to see Wazza. I think I'll be waddling soon my belly is getting big and I feel uncomfortably full.

@mummymaybe: We had to go the TESA route due to my DP's OA. My DP has been TESA'd twice. First time by our previous FS in Cycle 1, second time by Wazza in Cycle 4. Both times enough tubules/sperm were retrieved to cover the current Cycle plus 2 extra vials were put on ice.
First time my DP had local anaesthetic plus pethidine which knocked him out to the point he remembered bugger all...lol Second time he just had a local anaesthetic. First time he was sore for a few days or so but nothing major. Second time he was bruised @ battered @ in a bit of pain for a couple of days but that was because I'd asked Wazza to see if he could retrieve any sperm from the epididymis (as we didn't know for sure where the blockage was) plus he also tried the Vas Deferens for good measure too while he was there...LOL.
Anyhoo..all that poking and prodding around unsurprisingly left DP in a bit of pain afterwards but he was ok in a few days pain wise. The bruising lasted for over a week. Wazza will prob give you a script for some anaesthetic cream for your DH to apply beforehand as well as one for some antibiotics he'll take as a precaution/preventative for infection. He'll prob give you one for some stronger painkillers too for afterwards if you ask him.
Your DH will be fine Luv. Make sure you have some ice/frozen peas etc on standby to help with pain/swelling😊☺. All will be ok. Good Luck!!!
P.S...Your DH can be knocked right out for the procedure with a GA if he wants.

Thanks @ BlondeinBrisvegas. It will be unpleasant but I'm sure he will be ok. No GA as he will have to go back to work. I'll get some nice ice packs for him. I'll talk to Warren about some numbing cream tomorrow.
Hopefully we get enough for a few cycles and that takes away the stress.

Hi ladies! I haven't posted on here since my first failed IVF in July. After that cycle I booked an appointment with the infamous dr Wazza after reading rave reviews on here- the first available appointment was in April 2015! I currently live interstate but am moving back to qld at the end of the month so have been able to move my name to the waiting list that can come in at any time. I called the receptionist today and probably sounded like a true crazy desperate lady (I kind of am.) I asked how long the quick notice wait list is and she hinted it is over 50 patients long. Wow. How long did any of you wait for a phone call? I reallllly want to get in before April as I want to commence IVF again by May due to it lining up with leave from work as it would be very tough to do it during work time in my new job. I really hope the stars align and I get my initial consult earlier than April. The reason I thought it may need to be earlier is that I believe he commences patients on a big long list of supplements. Does he want us taking these for a minimum of a few months before a cycle commences? Are there standard ones I could get over the counter and start now? If anyone could let me know what he prescribes and at what dose that would be amazing.
Our main issue was thought to be MFI, we are both 28 but my first cycle I only got 2 eggs and after two further failed cycles this year (the most recent BFN was just last week) it would appear my eggs/response to meds are both partly to blame. I'm hoping Wazza can supercharge them as I can't believe this hasn't worked yet. Any advice on anything I could start now would be much appreciated and I will await my phone call after January when he is back!

Welcome @Ducky01. My initial appointment with Warren was meant to be in July next year I made that appointment in mid September and had my first appointment at the end of October. I started my current cycle within 2 weeks of seeing him.
The key to getting an appointment is to to answer your phone and be available. If you don't answer they just call someone else, no chance to call them back. I got my call at 9am for a 2pm appointment, so you really have to be willing and able to drop everything and go.
I am on the long list of supplements but I didn't wait 3 months before cycling nor did he suggest I should. Someone has posted a copy of it somewhere in the thread if you have a look.
If you don't want to cycle until May I wouldn't be to stressed things move quickly once you have your first appointment.

Hi @Ducky01! I only waited a few weeks to get my cancellation appointment. It was definitely less than a month. We did wait a month or two before starting our cycle but only because I needed a sanity break and wazza was going to be on holidays so we just waited - it was our call though, he was happy to start straight away if we wanted.
