It's an hour drive too so I have to drive, not panic, try to be positive which is more or less impossible for me, and then go see you later while some more strangers hook her up to drugs used to render someone unconcious?
    Fertile Panic,
    I am so sorry. I know it's hard and the worry is the worst but I will be 100% honest when I tell you that the "anxiety about the surgery" is so much worse then the surgery itself. I had IVF retrieval on Thursday of last week and I worried about it from the time we set the date. It was over before I knew it. I walked out of the hospital like I had just been there visiting someone. These Dr's will take care of her. This will all be worth it. Good luck and try to not be negative, everybody has something positive in their lives, try to focus on that.
    Thanks FertilePanic thanked for this post

    Thanks. This month was a failure so we're off early in the AM tomorrow to do this. That will mean August is scrapped as well. Hopefully everything goes smoothly.

    Thanks. That's over with now. Had to get up at 3am for this. Can barely think straight. They removed 1 or 2 polyps. Wife recovering all day. Next up. IUI.

    Thanks for checking-in. Things this month have been fairly mundane since we aren't trying this month while my wife heals from her procedure. I think both of us have enjoyed taking a month off as it had become a complete drag to try and fail every month. The upcoming cycle we will attempt IUI so that's what is lined up next for us. We received a list of all the drugs they want her to take and are researching alternatives as some of them are really expensive. I guess this is the part of the process where I'll be emptying out my bank account to fertility doctors.

    The dr. did seem to think that removing these polyps was really going to help so we'll see.

    It's about that time again. The IUI games begin... next week. Need to pick up a bunch of drugs for my wife and then figure out what in fact is actually going to be happening and go from there. Sounds as though she has less cramping or something now that the polyps are removed so maybe that is a good sign.
