the neverending story

Tomorrow is my WTF appointment with my RE. Not, WTF/why did IVF not work. Not, WTF/why can I not get pregnant. Rather, WTF/what can we do to stop these cysts and my pain.

I'm curious to see what he says, not only about a solution to the problem, but also about our decision to adopt and forgo any further fertility treatments at this time.

Like the OCD freak I am, I have a list of what I want to say composed and sitting in my e-mail inbox. I've debated back and forth about posting it here, but I think I'll just wait and post what he says tomorrow. What's more waiting, right?

26.5 hours and counting...

Sending lots of positive thoughts for the appointment. There has GOT to be a way to deal with this pain. I'll be very interested to hear what happens.

nobabyruth said...

Good luck! I really hope that he has a good solution for you. You shouldn't have to be in such pain!

Rita said...

Good luck, Katie. I hope the RE has an answer for solving your cysts and pain. I'm also curious to hear what he has to say about your future plans. I hope he's the exact opposite of that quack of an OBGYN you recently saw. A million ((hugs))

Good luck Katie!

Gurlee said...

Good luck tomorrow! I will be thinking of you. I hope the conversationcan bring relief or a remedy for it.

*Jelena* said...

Good luck. That's all I can really say. That, and I'm sorry all this is happening to you.

Stacy said...

Good Luck to you! I hope he provides some good answers for you and your husband.

Secret Sloper said...

Good luck tomorrow, Katie. I'll be patiently waiting for your update.

serenity said...

Thinking of you, hon. I really hope you come out of your meeting feeling good about things.

Dawn said...

Good luck! I hope you have a great appointment and get some much deserved answers!

Rach said...

Good luck with the appt. I hope they get you pain free!

conceptionallychallenged said...

Good luck. I hope your RE has some answers regarding your cysts and pain*, and that he is supportive of your decision to adopt.

* my doctor told me to take pain killers... though with no obvious reason for the pain it is even harder to get good advice

CS said...

List is a great idea. When I'm actually at the doctor's, all the things I want to say go out of my mind, and we end up leaving without me having said/asked important things...

AL said...

Good luck tomorrow! I hope you get some answers.

liberalgranolagirl said...

I hope that you get some answers and some treatment options that work. Cysts fucking suck :-(

Alex said...

Hope you get some good answers. I'd be interested to hear about your doc's opinion about adopting. And definitely I hope you figure out how to reduce your pain!

AplusB said...

I hope the appointment goes well and you get some good solutions for the pain.

erika said...

I want good doctors, I want answers and I want results for you! praying for a good appointment.

lowfatlady said...

LOL you are not a freak. I go in with a page of printed questions all the time. I hope they are able to figure out whats going on so you don't have to deal with this anymore.

Logical Libby said...

During our final WTF meeting the doctor made sure there was a large table between us. I think he was a little scared.

Good luck.

someday-soon said...

I always go with a list too. GL, I hope you get some answers!

Arlyne said...

I hope he comes up with something to ease your pain! I hate that you have to endure this, on top of everything else! Sending lots of hugs your way! xoxo

amiracle4us said...

we get soooo good at waiting don't we??? good luck tomorrow :)

rebecca said...

Hope you get answers to the questions that have been weighing most heavily. Sending love and thoughts your way ((hugs))

Another Dreamer said...

Hoping you get some answers and some relief.

WaitingVicky said...

Best of luck for the appointment.

I will be interested to hear how it goes. I was thinking about making an appointment for exactly the same reason- so feel free to pass on any advice!

I know the pain well, and I hope there is a solution for you.

Mrs. Lemon said...

I feel the same way about not getting an answer to my ongoing cyst/bleeding issues. Good Luck!

Adele said...

I'm crossing everything that it goes well, and that you finally get a workable No-More-Cysts plan. I'm a listmaker myself - it helps me compose my thoughts. And it also helps me go into these consultations well-armed. And in a sphere where we have so little control, that's very important.

Good luck. Will be thinking good thoughts for you.

Kakunaa said...

How did it go today???? Is there a plan? I hope you are doing alright!

Kelly said...

I'm just getting caught up so I'm sorry I didn't wish you luck before your appointment. I hope it went well, Katie. You deserve some answers.

manymanymoons said...

Can't wait to hear what the RE has to say. Hope everything went well.
