So current issues are:
- Get to the 5th of Feb and ensure that all planned scans, etc do not conflict with my rather hectic back and forth schedule.
- Move that one appointment that is likely to conflict with collection day.
- Try to find someone to meet me at the clinic on collection day as they don't want you to go home alone.
In other news my mother started freaking out that the treatment was going to create another dermoid cyst and that I'd lose my last remaining ovary in the process. She lost both ovaries to dermoid cysts and I lost one. So there is a fair worry there, but I reminded her that I asked the doctor specifically about this issue and he said it was very unlikely. On top of which, given all the scanning I'll be having, if any cyst starts to develop, I imagine that they will be able to notice it and stop the process. Also, early cysts can be dealt with, without losing the ovary. It's a risk, but a minimal risk. And my only option is otherwise not to proceed. The doctor did not think it was a high risk. I think I need to go with his experience on the matter.
So that's where I'm at. Now I'm getting nervous that it's all going to fail and there won't be any eggs or not enough eggs. It's really kind of amazing the mental ups and downs you go through. I mean, I understand it, and it all seems a bit text book. But being typical doesn't change that I'm still going through it! Deep breaths. Calm thoughts. After all, if I meet someone in a couple of years, and we wanted kids and tried IVF then, it would be worse then. This is the best I can do, doing this right now. We'll see what happens.
Good luck! just completed a freezing cycle in the US.ReplyDelete
