Thanks for the advise, and I totally agree with you about the surgeon.. I just didn't feel comfortable with my RE (FS), I felt way more comfortable with my OBGYN. Hence, the reason I'm seeing a new RE on May 4th. She is voted one of the best in the field in not only Florida, but in the US. I'm hopeful she can help me or give me great advise/referrals to get me that BFP! I made it clear I'm not interested in IVF at this time. If I have to travel to get the best surgeon, I will. I would like to have more than one child and with IVF you only have one shot (on my budget anyways). With the Fimbrioplasty, you have several. Plus, maybe I can get my insurance to cover it like Lilly Love did
I am trying to stay optomistic as well. I am having some mild cramps almost like AF is coming, but I'm only on 6DPO and am not told to test until next Tuesday. I'm not getting my hopes up. I booked 2 flights to New York end of Summer so I'd like to enjoy my time there.
I think it's wonderful that your FS is not concerned about your tubes, the fact that they were blocked due to endo is a good sign that once the endo is taken care of, you're good to go! Endo does reoccur but you can have another lap to remove it, since you had early stages, you will surely get a BFP soon! My friend had her endo removed and did IUI and had her first baby after 5 years of trying!
My OBGYN said I didnt have any endo or lesions but he mentioned the blood blockage in my tubes as well, he said it was from my menses building up. Perhaps it can happen even if you dont have endo? Either way, I wish you the best of luck!
I also have a friend that was on BCP and got off and was immediately prego, something about stored eggs...
Glad to hear you're doing much better. Follow the doctors advise and wait a little longer, Godforbid you end up damaging something down there
I think I will call the Hospital and ask for my xrays from my HSG since they showed my tubes were open. My OBGYN didnt video my lap, but he got some vivid photos! I will get a copy of those also. Did you have to pay for your images on a disc?
Feel better, sweetie and I hope you heal quickly so you can get back to the BD
I didn't have to pay for the images of my hsg - I did have to call and request they put them on a disc for me (it is easier to email doctors from the disc) -because Dr. Rotman's office requested this. Also in the future you can make copies of the disc if you need to show various doctors.
The surgeon gave me the images of my lap - they didn't video mine either. My claims are just starting to come in for my lap surgery and all in all it will be over 10k because of the other stuff my surgeon had to do - ALL IS BEING PAID FOR BY INSURANCE at our 90/10 rate!!! My insurance doesn't cover anything "infertility" related besides diagnosis - so I am actually quite shocked. I hope you can get the surgery and that your surgeon codes it right!!!
We will def wait it out - dh is super scared of messing up any thing down there now that the surgery is done. I think the fact that you and dh are thinking about kicking back and traveling the world is a great idea!! We are just feeling so rushed at the moment - but you have time sister!
I'm not too familiar with the stored eggs theory..is it having your eggs frozen so you can try when you are ready? If so, I should have done that years ago..lol! It sounds great in theory, but I do not know of anyone that has done it.
What are your infertility diagnosis? Do you have blocked tubes as well?
Best of luck to all of us LTTC women!
That's is awesome about our insurance LL! I hope mine will do the same, it's all about the billing from the Doctor
Cramps at 6 dpo could be implantation. Don't wanna raise your hopes but there's no harm in hoping New York sounds so exciting. We had been to NYC in the summer of 2010 and loved every bit of our stay there. I am sure its going to lift your spirits and the holiday couldn't have come at a better time than this Good to know that you are going to consult one of the best FS s. It always helps to have faith in one's doc. Good luck.
I think by "stored egg theory" Lian means that being on BC Pills long term can preserve fertility as you are not releasing eggs each month. My obgyn actually mentioned this to me last year at my yearly exam because I haven't been on BC pills since my mid 20's!
I'm like thanks for letting me know now that I am 35!!!
