On the Mend

Thanks all for your kind words, they meant a lot to Amy and me. I'm finally starting to feel like myself again. Both procedures last week went fine and the only real pain I felt afterward was in my shoulders and back from the damn gas they put in my body. The ride home was pretty brutal. Nothing like puking in a bag in the car during the middle of rush hour.

We managed to get some pictures from the procedure (which I have to admit are pretty cool) and a pair of socks with slip resistant pads on the bottom. This by no means took the sting out of the bill but it did make me feel like I was getting something for my money. Kind of like when you go to a hotel and take home the mini shampoo and conditioner from the shower.

My tubes are all clear which is a relief since they weren't sure based off the HSG and they removed two fibroids from my uterus. I also had to go back to get some blood work done due to my Prolactin level being high. So I'm now on a prescription to bring that level back down to normal range.

We have our post-op visit with the doctor on the 8th and can hopefully get started again in January. I'm so gratefully that even though it took us over a year to get where we are that we are finally at a place where I feel like we are actually making progress and getting answers and possible solutions to why things haven't been going our way.

I've been hiding out a bit and not really checking blogs, but wanted to know how you were doing. So glad it went well. And just so glad to hear that you're doing ok!! I am looking at fibroid surgery upcoming. Is there any way you could email me ... I have some questions. Hope that isn't too intrusive. jencas20009 at gmail dot com

That is great that the surgery is done and you got some slip resistant socks too. Phew. This process does take a long time. Best of wishes for a January start.

Just found your blog. We tried for 3 years to get pregnant before I finally had a hysteroscopy where they fixed some things. I had my third IVF right after that and finally got pregnant with my twins.
Hoping you have the same luck :-)

So glad your surgery was a success. Fingers are crossed for a January BFP for you and your shiny, new uterus!

Those HSGs can be tricky. I had one about two months ago that told me both of my tubes were blocked at the ovaries. A month later, BFP. Good luck at the fresh start! We will follow with you guys.

I just found your blog. I too had to have surgery. I'm glad it went well and it's great your tubes aren't blocked. There's nothing stopping things now and I look foward to following your journey.
