Gosh, I just don't know how I feel about how this appointment went!
Dr Love felt around for endo, did a vajay ultrasound, and concluded: He didn't know if I had endo. He did not want to say one way or the other if I should have a laproscopy, he said he wanted it to be up to me.
Well, I don't know!
He also said I likely would have stage I or II. And he said couples with stage I or II that have surgery only have a 1 in 6 improvement on their odds of conceiving strictly due to surgery. Which is about as clear as mud.
Then I sort of freaked as I was leaving, because I prodded the nurse, and she said I could schedule feb-march if I scheduled now, but if I wanted to wait, I would have to come for another appt (end of Dec), and then they'd be scheduling April.
So I said I wanted one. March 21st. It is scheduled. Unless, (miralce of miracles) I do get pg before then, oviously it is off. Given that we have IUI#2 plans for January, if that doesn't take, then the lap might be a good thing to check off the list after that. Then I could do IUI #3 in like May/June timeframe, to allow for some healing. Gosh, look at me go deep into next year! Ai ya.
He thinks I shouldn't be eating meat. I explained how that is contrary to the Weston J. Pr.ice people, and he nodded and sort of said I should go with what makes me feel healthy, in the end. But this conversation sort of circled around several times. And he recommended meditation. Which is not a bad idea. Work stress has been creeping up again.
DH thinks the surgury is a waste of public funds. Maybe it is - I just don't know. I wanted to put the endo question to rest, but of course, you can't without a lap. At least he said that, and not the straight off "No" that other docs have said, even though that's not true. So I do feel bad about maybe wasting public money... and certainly if I do a surgery and have to be cut open and heal all for no reason, that is stupid and painful.... thoughts, ladies?
