Polyp Removal

T minus 2 days until I go in for my polyp removal. I had my consultation appointment last week and was able to book the removal for exactly a week later as I told them I wanted to move forward with an FET as quickly as possible!

The Doctor did a external and internal exam, a trans vaginal ultrasound, a culture and a pap….lucky me.

They explained the procedure to me and what will happen and then gave me my medications that I am to take on the day of the procedure. On med I take vaginally 4 hours before my appointment to help soften the cervix. The other ‘3’ I was to take orally one hour before my appointment to help with pain, infection prevention, etc.; however, due to my Codeine allergy, he was not able to give me the oral pain medication to take – so now I get nothing for that. I’m a little nervous about how much this might hurt. I will be placed under conscious sedation at least, but I’ll be awake for the whole thing.

I also have to fast for 8 hours before my 1pm appointment so I will be SO SO hungry and thirsty. I’m hoping we can at least start moving forward with an FET shortly after this so fingers crossed we get the go ahead!!!

One step forward…

After being sent for a(nother) sonohystogram, it has been confirmed that I have a small polyp in my uterine lining. They feel as though it is nothing to be concerned about; however, it will need to be removed before we are able to move forward with another cycle. My RE has put in a referral with a gynecologist  in the city to have this done as soon as possible. I don’t believe there is too much of a healing time after such a procedure so hopefully this won’t delay thing too long. If anyone has experience with this procedure – any and all info would be greatly appreciated!

The other thing my RE has discussed with me is adding Neupogen (white cell growth factor) to our next cycle. He has not used this protocol with a patient yet but some of the other RE’s in his office have done so – all with positive outcomes. Has anyone had any experience with using Neupogen for lining development? How did it affect your lining?

Still no timeframe for our next cycle – man I just want a plan.
