Blarg. Now that I'm feeling a bit more like a human being...

DOing scrollwork while you're sitting in one of those comfy gyno-chairs next to a fetal monitor gets you VERY interesting looks from the nursing staff.
So oddly enough does, knowing how to read an ultrasound ( Because I do) and knowing the callsigns that say surgery is necissary or not. Now I KNEW that it wasn't necissary for me to be cut on. Fortunately the doctor on duty yesterday was my favorite Dr. Oosterhuis. He's not only the head of the Gyno department but one of the foremost minds in the world when it comes to fertility and gynocological surgery. He gives the lectures that everyone comes to, to use as CEU credits. I Would LOVE to attend one of his lectures. Facinating stuff. Anywho. He was all like "No you're absolutely right, we're not going to do surgery where we know we're not going to find anything on a woman thats completely asymptomatic." They have a drug for that.

Now Methyltrexate and RhoGham or DgD as they call it here, are definitely on the list of NEVER EVER have again. Now I understand the necessity of RhoGham, and I will happily present my butt to get that injection again when I am happily pregnant knowing that hubby has Rh+ and i have Rh- but mother of god....

Now Methyltrexate, is an anti cancer medication. So you can imagine the side effects. Anything's better than surgery.

Next week Friday, I get to find out when I get to start trying to have a baby again. If I even want to start again. I mean I do, but...at the same time this experience has rattled me a little.

* hug *

I am sure you are very rattled, master of the understatement.

Get that top notch medical advice and then evaluate and plan your next step.

I love you.

I am not the master of the understatement. Bah. I tell it like it is.

Nothing really makes being in the situation where you need a dr. like this "better", but this is pretty cool.

Lots of *hugs*. I'm so sorry you two have to deal with this.

I was pretty impressed when I found that out too. He had to reschedule one of my appointments because he was giving a lecture in sweden about one of his new techniques.
