So my consultation appointment before my lap is tomorrow. Should I be remembering to ask anything specific? Can anyone who’s been through this before let me know about recovery time? Will I be fine to give a paper at a conference (in my area) the next day?
Consult is tomorrow. Lap is set for the 19th. Today I have to give a presentation and go to the dentist. Wonderful.
Now if I could just stop having dreams where I wake up from surgery to find my f/s telling me he had to take the whole uterus because it was riddled with cancer.
Ummm….I think I’ve got a bit of anxiety going on. Either that, or this is one REALLY BAD progesterone withdrawal.
Thing is, I’ve only ever been knocked out once before- to have my wisdom teeth out. And by all accounts I went a little nutty afterwards. I was hallucinating for the first few hours after I woke up, and was just plain out of it for most of the rest of the day.
I know this probably shouldn’t be a big deal. But right now, it seems like it is a BIG FREAKIN’ DEAL.
Mind you, I thought needles were a big freakin’ deal too, once upon a time.
Yep, that bar that marks ‘normal’? Just keeps sliding further along.
Here’s where my head is at right now. If the lap finds something, and my f/s cleans it out, we stick with the IUIs and give them another two cycles.
If my uterus is squeaky clean and ready to be nested in…then I’m not so sure. I think we’d want to have a long chat with my f/s about costs and odds and where we go from here.
But I think in my gut it’ll be IVF. And I’ll investigate acupuncture while we wait (and save). And the money that we’ll finally have coming in, the money that I had such fun earmarking last week for RRSPs and mortgage overpayments, and a cottage holiday in the summer, will have to be reassigned. And I’ll no longer be able to hide my head in the sand and claim that I’m not yet playing with the ‘big guns’ of infertility. And my sister will be less supportive of our choices because she is a geneticist and IVF makes her freak out.
And all of that makes me sad.
So I hope for abnormalities from the lap. And no hallucinations in recovery.
