"This Is A Big Deal"

That's what my RE said to me last night after she arrived at the hospital and I thanked her profusely for treating me that night.  It IS a big deal to me and she got that.  I tried not to get too emotional in pre op and I think I did ok.  I felt like I didn't really have the time or energy to get too emotional. 

The D&C was fast and I was in and out of the hospital in four and a half hours.  My RE says everything looked normal and her work had a very light touch.  I woke up very quickly, drank whatever was put in front of me so I could produce the required sample showing I was back to normal, and was off.  It was a bit nerve wracking keeping my friend/neighbor/ride out of my business during check in, etc. but overall, it was an ok evening.

The only thing that could go wrong now (well, the biggest) is that the pathology report shows hyperplasia.  If that happens I'll most likely find out when I'm abroad and the cycle will be canceled and if I go through treatment again I'll have to do an FET further on down the line.  This isn't too likely since I just had a clean biopsy at the beginning of summer and that biopsy followed two other negative ones.  I filed this info away in my "worst case scenario" memory folder.  I just don't have the energy to devote to worrying about this.

I didn't sleep all that well last night.  I woke up really hungry and nervous about the scan this morning.  Needn't have worried as the lining measurement is 3.5mm.  The other RE at my US clinic says all looks good and gave me his best wishes. 

The CZ clinic has already sent me an updated protocol so this morning I started estrogen with breakfast and will start C.etrotide on the 13th.  My consultant is trying to find a place in Budapest where I can get scan before I start the C.etrotide.  If not in Budapest I'll have to go to the CZ for a quick scan.  

My RE said last night that it's often the cycles with the most stress and logistical acrobatics that have the best outcomes.  You hear that Universe?


  1. Big deal for sure! What a great RE you have!

  2. What Tiara said. Your RE is amazing.

    It's all going to turn out great. It has to!

  3. I am so glad you have a fabulous RE who does understand. Wow! Hopefully soon we will all be celebrating with you. :-)

  4. Your RE sounds amazing. I'm sorry you've had to go through this additional round of drama, though. Wow. Hopefully you are getting ALL of the bad luck and stress out of the way now, and the rest of the cycle will be smooth sailing with a fabulous outcome.

  5. So glad it went well! Was thinking about you last night.

    When are you leaving?

  6. What a roller coaster! Your RE is amazing. Wishing you lots of luck for your cycle.
