somewhat less cryptic update...

ok, so to explain a bit more...

the hysteroscopy was clear, but my Dr. had a very hard time doing the exam. (notes actually said "very difficult"). apparently the skin surrounding my cervix is quite inflamed, and she had trouble getting the speculum open (again - hello memories of HSG Hell). I have to go for a biopsy of the area, bc my Dr/RE wants to make sure whatever the problem is (it's NOT cancer ) is cleared up by the time we start IVF. Which I get, and am doing better with than I was initially.

So, more waiting for me... not sure when the appt will be for the biopsy, then there's the wait for results, and then when I get my period AFTER the biopsy (if all comes back clear, I'm guessing) I can call Dr. B, I have to go in for another internal exam. This is just to make sure that the passage will be clear for any embies, because right now her concern is that right now, ET would be almost impossible, and really. who wants to get to that stage and not be able to go through with it.

so, thanks for the wishes all. Looks like we're back to benchwarming for a bit...

  1. Aww Chelle. This must have been extremely upsetting for you to hear. Not only that there is an issue that needs investigating/resolving but that it will impact the time line you were hoping to work with. :(
    But, this shows they are taking the best care of you that they can and ensuring that when things finally get in motion that it is with the best possible chances of success. I know it is heart breaking to be told to wait yet again. Hugs.

  4. Sorry it didn't go as smoothly as it could have. I'm still glad to know that you're moving forward with the whole process and I hope you won't be on the bench for too long. I think it's worth it to wait for a better chance of success. In the meantime, I'm sending you a big hug.
