    Default Dr Matthias - results

    I had my follow up appointment today with Dr Matthias, and the bloods showed the following;

    AMA positive

    Anticardiolipin positive

    MTHFR positive

    NK Cells and T Cell imbalance

    Has anyone had similar results and had a positive result after treatment? I’ve had 5 losses from 6 transfers, and have 1 frozen embryo left

    I had MTFHR and T cell imbalance, at least. I didn't write notes during the call that time (driving) so that's all I remember.
    I did a transfer of a d3 embie on Dr Ms protocol. After 5 chems, he's now 11 weeks. Good luck!

    That's great news! Would you mind sharing what protocol he used that worked? Thanks!

    I've not seen Dr M for assistance, but the bloods done by my FS showed:

    MTHFR positive
    NK cells abnormal
    Anticardiolipin positive

    We had 3 chemicals from 4 transfers. Changed protocol slightly this most recent cycle to include prednisolone and clexane. Now 5 weeks pregnant.

    Congratulations! We have a similar history. Did you do intralipids with Dr M?

    Sorry, I only just saw this!
    I was on:
    Prednisolone 20mg/day
    Clexane x 1/day
    Baby aspirin (self prescribed ) 1/day
    Vit D
    Vit E
    Folinic Acid
    I was meant to have intra lipids but would have had to fly to Sydney for them. I drew the line at that.

    Hi did you start clexane on the day of transfer or before? I have been on a protocol of clexane and aspirin but will be doing prednisone this time 15mg / day. I also take VitD , E and Folinic .
    Dr M wanted me to intralipids as well but I can’t get in until after my transfer.

    I'm pretty sure I started the clexane a few days before, and then didn't do one on day of transfer. I'm almost certain of it as I was worried my FS might see my bruised stomach!

    I started clexane a week before transfer this cycle (which has been successful).

    On a side note do other interstate patients find the appointments incredibly frustrating?! Twice now I have had a phone appointment booked and have not received the phone call on the day booked. It’s frustrating enough that we’re not given an actual time and have to be on standby all day- but then to receive no phone call at all! On both occasions I’ve phoned in the afternoon to find out what’s happening and was told they’d get back to me shortly which didn’t happen. So I have followed up with a semi disgruntled email in the evening and then receive a phone call the following day with no apology! Plus in my most recent appointment he asked me what medication he had put me on?! I just feel like he slips the phone appointments in and quite possibly doesn’t have any of my information in front of him for the appointment It’s so frustrating because I definitely want his treatment (...and he’s the only one in Aus so there’s not much choice) but I feel like patient care should be much better for $200 a pop appointments!
