Update

Ouch.

Even couch dwelling is painful. And AdventureBoy is my slave once again.

The surgery went well (or so Dr Challenge tells me) and he thinks they have removed all of it this time. So much so that he has decided not to go with a Zoladex and go straight into another cycle (starting this Monday).

The anaesthetic, however, was another story. It was a long operation (over 2 hours) but before I had been taken from the theatre at the end of it, I woke up! My memory of it was as a dream - you know, those dreams where you can't move, can't open your eyes, can't talk - but it wasn't. I thought that I was calling out only in my head, but apparently I wasn't. I still had the breathing tube down my throat and I was trying to pull it out, so they removed it and I was crying about being scared and trapped and unable to breathe. They obvioulsy knocked me out and I woke again in recovery, completely doped up on morphine and such low blood pressure and heart rate that they wouldn't let me back to my room.

Poor AB was waiting in the room for three hours before I was eventually brought back. I don't remember much of any of this, although I do have a recollection of talking to recovery room nurses about having tickets to see Robbie Williams in December. Of course, a vitally important conversation to be having at that point in time!

So I have been rather beaten around by this surgery. And I have been in quite a bit of pain ever since. Luckily Mum has come to stay for a while to look after us.

But Dr Challenge thinks I will recover quickly and the further supression of the Provera and Lucrin will be good. The other doctor he did the surgery with, Dr Charming, suggested that this is what he would do if I were his patient also. Apparently, Dr Challenge always does this type of surgery with this other IVF specialist friend of his from another clinic and discusses the cases while they are operating. I actually feel very confident about this, knowing that I have 2 specialist opinions making decisions about me.

And I'm quite happy not to have to take the Zoladex and start this cycle as early as possible. Monday it is. Which means transfer etc will be sometime toward the end of October (I think). I'm very pleased about all of this and, despite my current pain, I feel good.

Thanks for all of your thoughts and wishes. I may be a little out of action for another couple of days yet, but hopefully will be back on board again soon. Sorry about my lack of comments at your places, but I have been thinking of you all.

And now, my bed beckons ...

So glad you could update! I have been checking back wondering how you are.

I agree, it's fabulous to have TWO specialists' opinions -- especially when they agree with one another! So, that is great news that you will be able to cycle much sooner!

Get lots of rest and take it easy -- we'll be here when you are feeling better and can post/comment again. :)

All the best,
Nilla

So good to hear from you, and I'm glad the surgery went so well. By the sounds of it you'll be cycling in no time!
Now go put your feet up and rest, let AB spoil you!

Sorry to hear you're in pain - I guess there's a lot more going on in there than with the diagnostic just a short time ago. But the cycling again sounds good - the best possible outcome. Now, if only this could be the end of it before the really good news starts rolling in...

Wow, it must have been so scary to wake up like you did. Talk about a nightmare.

I can't believe you'll be cycling so soon. That's wonderful news! For now, enjoy those pain meds.

How wonderful that you will be cycling soon. Take care and I hope that you are feeling good soon. Hugs.
