Hockey, I already called my Dr. in Austin for the polyp removal, looks like around end of April. Then I can start immediately with the next period. I was thinking giving my body rest around one month, then proceed sometimes in July. For now I am thinking starting with vitamins and light exercise. I still don't know what my next protocol will be. My RE is out of town and only back on next Monday. I will hear something around that time. Now time to stock meds!
So I got some potentially good news from my FS today. Went in for my surgery consult for my fibroid removal next week. Both doctors felt that after reviewing the MRI that the fibroid was too small to remove through the robotic surgery but due to its location, that it still needed to be removed.
They feel they can do a combination laparascopy and hysteroscopy (sp) and remove the fibroid without making any incision into the uterus by scraping it out. It's only 0.6 x 0.7 cm so as long as they can locate it, they should be able to get it out easily.
With this type of procedure, the wait time to try and conceive changes from 4 months to 1 or 2 months. That is just fantastic news!!
Worst case scenario is they have to make an incision and I'm back to a 4 month recovery - which is what I was expecting to begin with.
So Fx'd that they can scrape it out (as awful as that sounds!)
Hockey, everything will be okay and hang in there ...I will have my polyp surgery next week. Still going crazy of paying the insurance co pay. The hospital want me to pay $1200 in advance to satisfy my deductible. They won't do it if I don't pay that amount. Just crazy, no matter if we have health insurance, it still expensive.
I also get a news from my RE that want me to do Estrogen Primming Protocol (EPP) for the next one. So I already asked for the list of meds....that will cost me over $3000. When this going to end...I am ready to pull my hair..haha
That's a good question Hockey, I myself still learning about it...lol! What I read sometimes the use only Estrogen patch before the period start and then stim as normal. So this more like EPP/Antagonist. But my RE put me on Lupron start a week before my menses. The use the combination of Lupron with estrogen (which is estrace) to send signal to recruit more follicles and hopefully more eggs. Then I will stim as normal as Antagonist protocol.
