I Just Don't Get It

Most of you know what is going on with my reproductive health.  I had a 0900 hrs appointment this morning.  Lt.Col. B. was unavailable and I was told I was going to get stuck with Dr.B.   As it turned out I got stuck with Dr.C.  Dr.C. was the one that did my IVFs.  Sure he is good for that but it seems like only that. 


Dr.C.  said he didn't think surgery was necessary.
He said I could now have sex.
He said he still wants me on bed rest for at least another 3-4 weeks.

WTF?

The cyst is still there.  A tad bit smaller in one direction but still 6.7 cm in the other direction.

Dr.C. then tells me after saying I can have sex that he is concerned about ovarian torsion.  Well duh!

I asked for a second opinion when the numbnut said the above.  He told me he was willing to page Lt.Col.B. to the office to take a look at me.  I said having him call me with the lab results will be sufficient.

Dr.C. said he wouldn't have to see me until several more weeks have passed.  Oh yeah I want the second opinion!

Need I say I'm pissed?

Dr.C. also then tells me that there isn't much more that the clinic can do for me after stating that he realizes that I can get pregnant.  Huh?  Seriously someone make him go back to med school now.  Maybe he didn't have enough caffeine this morning?

I say get the cyst out of me this week and get my period going.  I want  a cycle.  Its something like CD40 now and I'm sick to death of this bed rest.  My eggs aren't getting any younger.  If I need to do donor eggs I want to have all the endometriosis cleaned out so that I can have a better chance at having the embryo stick this time.  Is that too much to ask for?

    1. Normally this guy makes sense in his orders but that has only been when I was doing IVF. Right now I can't do a thing but wait and he tells me have sex? WTF? I'm really hoping Lt.Col.B. calls me back by this evening.

  3. Hope Lt Col B calls you back and gets on the surgery treatment plan. Another 3-4 weeks of bedrest is awful. With the amount of bed rest you have had you could have recovered from surgery already. Seesh. And you are still in pain :-(

  5. "Go ahead and have sex, it may wrap your fallopian tube into a bow, but what the heck...just make sure you don't MOVE while you are having sex...at all...and stay on bed rest." Yeah, I'd want a second opinion too. Geez Louise. I hope Lt Col B calls you. I can't wait to hear what he has to say.

    1. Saw Dr.B. today. Lt.Col.B. is doing only part time at the clinic and spending most of his time in research...thus I was his guinea pig.

  6. Yes, a second opinion is definitely called for. Schedule it ASAP. This is completely unacceptable.
