So, first I had tonsillitis my second to last cycle & was pumped full of antibiotics & pain killers. I was actually feeling pretty darn good about this cycle. But, here I am somewhere between 3-5 DPO today...and spent another morning in the ER yesterday morning! So I'm not holding out too much luck on this cycle. I've been feeling like I was dying since Sunday night, couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, in constant pain. Yesterday at 4:45am is got so bad I woke DF up & told him I had to see someone. It hurt just to BREATHE! Off we go to the ER. From 5 to 7:30 they left me sitting out in the waiting room. FINALLY get to a room, the doc says we're going to do urine & blood work & an ultrasound. Ok. They send me off to give a urine sample. Finish that up, the come in & take my blood, then leave the IV in & hook me up to a bag of fluid for dehydration. Alrighty then, in the comes the ultrasound tech. She does her thing & then I spend the next hour or so sitting in the room trying to rest. Doctor finally comes in & tells me I have gall stones & my gallbladder needs to come out ASAP. He's already tried to make me an appointment for Friday with a specialist. Nope, it's a no go. So my WONDERFUL DF spent about 4 hours on the phone with different people yesterday trying to get me in somewhere. Well, today at 2:15 I have an appt. with a specialist to go have a consult & see about setting up a surgery date to have this thing done. This was my third gallbladder attack in 3 weeks, and COUNTLESS more in the last 3 years...but this one was also by far the worst. Lasting over 3 days. Doctor gave me something for nausea & pain. Took that & was able to eat a little yesterday afternoon. Then slept from 3pm yesterday to 8am this morning!! Wonderful DF of mine, letting me pass out like that. Guess I caught up on the 3 nights of sleep I missed!! SO, despite feeling so proud of this cycle...I guess it's a bust now. All the research I've done states that gallbladder surgery in the first trimester can (usually?) results in 'spontaneous abortion'. Plus, depending on when they schedule the surgery for...it may put me out of luck for the next cycle. I know this is only cycle #4 for us, but I just feel so let down & this point & like nothing has/can go right in this TTC journey. I'm starting to feel like it's never going to happen, & everytime I do start to feel like we're getting somewhere, we have a setback.
But I'm wondering if since they DID do an ultrasound yesterday, and they looked all over, including around the uterus....I wonder if they could tell me if they noticed anything funny going on around the uterus. Or if their bloodwork might tell them if something wonky was going on inside me that I should know about. I'm not holding my breathe on them sharing that info...but hey, it sounded good to think they might be able to give some insight! LOL!
