Today was my hysteroscopy to remove the polyp. I ended up getting general anesthesia instead of twilight, which was ok with me. Surgery lasted around an hour and was routine, but revealed a surprise.
The polyp was HUGE. It was taking up more than 1/3 of my uterus and had damaged my left tube. No wonder I had 2 failed IVF cycles due to implantation failure. I am bummed about the bad tube, but since we are IVF patients anyway, I guess it is not a huge loss. Had it been caught sooner though, perhaps my tube would have been okay.
I'll say it again, I am SO happy that we got an 2nd opinion!!!
I had serious post-surgery shivers and my body was having trouble regulating its temp. They brought in a forced air warming blanket and gave me a shot of Demerol to stop the tremors. I have never shook so bad in my life.
I got home a little after 6pm and I promptly vomited as we walked in the door. I feel much better now though. Crampy and some pressure, but ok.
Sean made me some Ring 0 Noodle Soup with egg and now I am about to have a banana and peanut butter. He is a great nurse :)
Dr. M called me at home this evening and wants me to get underway with IVF #3 as soon possible.
I need to call my nurse in the morning and get on the calendar. Thanks for all your well wishes!
