You Know It's A Fibro Day When...

You get into the shower wash your hair, condition it and forget what you were in the shower for, the next step in cleaning up and start it all over again.

Yup had one of those mornings.

I finally got my lab results yesterday afternoon around 1645 hrs.  The phones, internet and cable were on and off around the installation yesterday causing for some major issues in communications.

Yesterday was CD 28

D3 results are still not in.

Beta was negative as I figured it would be.

FSH 6.9

LH 6.19

P4 7.62  (this was with 100mg of Endometrin 2xday)

E2 44

The RE nurse assured me that the P4 was just fine.  Um, no it isn't.

Because I'm not yet bleeding and am having a lot of pelvic pain the nurse is going to try to get me an appointment for Friday to have a look-see.  I'm hoping that after five months the endometriosis is not growing back. 

Last night I took a nice hot soak in the tub and it felt like I had a marble in my lower back making the soaking not that comfortable.  The pain goes straight from the back to my reproductive organs.  Not a good sign.  It is starting to feel like it did this past spring.

Maybe if I can get in to see the doctor this week I can try to get a CD3 blood panel to make sure that all is back to normal.  Of course with my dumb luck the CD 3 will land on a weekend and muck things up.  For some reason this clinic doesn't want us going to the ER to get the labs drawn for the appropriate day.  Mind you our clinic is in the hospital.  At West Point I was instructed that if my CD 3 or 14 or 21 or 28 fell on the weekend the labs would need to be drawn at their ER to keep the CD labs appropriate for their day since we all know that hormones can vary widely in just 24 hours.

Looking forward to the next cycle.  Today I'll see about ordering some vitamins that are supposed to help fight off the endometriosis and give me more energy.  I need more energy today with the fibromyalgia.


  1. I really hope that the endometriosis hasnt grown back!

    1. Me too but I'm in that window where it might be back. Next month is 6 months from the surgery.

    2. BOO BOOO BOOO! Hopefully that specialty diet is working on your favor!

  2. Sorry about the BFN. Really hope its not the fibro :-(

    1. Was told I should make an appt. with OB/GYN for the pain. Our clinic is so short staffed right now.

    1. For what? The Fibromyalgia? If so then no. I'm not being seen at all for that though they know I need to be seen regularly.

  4. I am a few days late but I'm sorry about the negative beta and also for all of the pain. I wish you didn't have to go through either, let alone both. Thinking of you and hoping you can at least get some assistance with managing the pain. ((hugs))

    1. Hot bath. That is about all I get to treat the pain.

  5. I'm sorry I wasn't around during this hard time. I really hope it didn't grow back!
