Pedal to the metal

The hysteroscopy today revealed an actual uterine cavity which is SO GOOD considering that it didn’t exist before the June surgery. Both fallopian tubes were visible and open. There was a pocket where scar tissue attempted to bind my uterus together again and the area between my fallopian tubes is still covered in scar tissue. Doc says it needs to be done and he can get me in next week.  !!!!!  Okay. That’s fast. I had imagined it would be at least a month before we could get surgery scheduled. That means pre-op is Tuesday (since Monday is a holiday), surgery is Wednesday, balloon stent probably removed the following Tuesday. With this next surgery, doc is going to try a new estrogen regiment and hopes to have great results with just one month of hormone therapy. Then, I get back on the pill and we do another hysteroscopy. He is hopeful that this surgery may be IT and we could be in great shape for our next FET (frozen embryo transfer).

Are we ready for the FET yet? We don’t know. We both really felt that having baby J when we did was perfect timing – not big and pregnant during hot months, not taking an itty bitty baby to daycare (because a friend watched him for seven weeks after my six weeks of maternity leave and one of spring break, then I had all summer break with him), and an FET in the school year would be an extra challenge. It’s hard enough to get out the door in the morning without adding early pregnancy and injections. I just don’t know how I feel about it right now.

I was trying to count today: how many hysteroscopies have I had? I think today was three… actually, four. I didn’t even have pre-hysteroscopy instructions, but I remembered what to do (or not do) anyway.

My man and I are very ready to be done with the surgery part of this path to FET #2 … and ready to be done with the hormones, too, but very thankful to be in so many prayers and the hands of a very skilled surgeon.
