This cycle has turned out to be a complete disaster.
First off, my doctor confirmed this morning that the fluid she saw on my u/s on Tuesday is still there and in fact worse then it was. Evidently my tubes (which are completely blocked anyway) are filled with fluid and it's now draining into my uterus. This would make the probability of a transfered embryo sticking very unlikely so we cancelled this cycle.
Then, she told me the best option for me right now is surgery to have the tubes either removed (preferable but may not be possible given all the scar tissue I have from the endo and previous surgeries) or sever the tubes so they can't drain into my uterus.
So it was bad news x 2 for me but somehow I'm feeling pretty good and optimistic about things right now, go figure. My doctor was excellent with me this morning and was taking time out between all the other scheduled scans she had to attend to me and try to get me prepped for the surgery. Normally that would be another appointment, but she fit me in. She's also trying to get an OR time ASAP so I don't have to sit and stew on this too long. She figures I'll be in for this surgery within the next 4 weeks. I think it's because of how great she was with me this morning that I'm feeling pretty okay about things. It's a set back, but the result should be better chances for me on my next IVF round.
Sorry for the long post, but optimistic or not, I'm pretty freaked out by all of this right now and feeling a bit overwhelmed. It helps to share it with all of you.
I can't even imagine hun! How are you feeling? Did you have any clue so much was going inside you? I hope this solves the health issues and you're given the all clear to begin the IVF process again. I'm so sorry it's been such a bumpy ride.
I am so sorry you have to go through this. I am very optomistic for you too. I am sure you will be underway with your next IVF cycle soon. It does make a difference when your doctor has excellent bed side manners and makes you feel important, that they care for you.
That is a bummer, but I am so glad that doc is doing everything she can to make sure this is going to be successful for you!! I hope that everything goes very well with the surgery and you can get that gunk cleared out so baby can settle in nicely.
