Had my lap...

and I had some endo.
Stage 1 (so the least harmful), but Dr. K found a mass of it behind my uterus. I talked to her yesterday and she said it was more than she expected to find. She told me she's fine with us moving forward with IVF #2 when we are ready, but she feels we should try on our own for a few months. I told her we were not ready to go back to TI (basically having sex at the "right" time). We're just way past that and don't want to deal with the frustration. She told me she's happy to do a few IUI's, but not with Clomid. I have an appt in 2 weeks for her to look at my incisions so we'll talk about next steps then. But it looks like we'll try 2 IUIs (one in Dec, one in Jan) with injectible meds...and see what happens.

It seems crazy to be moving backwards, but maybe this has been the issue the whole time? I have to hope that it is, and now that it's gone I won't have an issue. Let's hope so anyway.

And for anyone scared of getting a lap...it's not that big of a deal. Trust me, I was freaking out pre-surgery. But honestly, I don't even remember going to sleep. I was in pain when I woke up, but they gave me some meds and all was better. They sent me home with a small bottle of pain killers, which I've been trying to use in moderation.

I'm glad they were able to get rid of the endo. Definitely not something I was expecting them to find in me. I hope the IUIs work now that the endo is gone. Wishing you the best.

I'm glad you were able to get some answers thanks to the lap. Hope you're feeling all better now!

I'm so sorry she found Endo, but I am relieved to hear it is Stage I. I am a Stage IV Endo patient and also was a patient of Dr. K too. Small world. I was a visitor of the TTTC board but left the board as our journey is up. I just happened to check in and found your blog.

Good luck, take care of yourself as you heal and I hope you are back on the TTC journey soon!

I am so glad that the lap went well. I hope they fixed you all up and you get pregnant without spending another 15K! GL sweetie!
