I'm finally steppin out here after months of being a fly on the wall.
So that's where I'm at now as of last week-guts all over the floor. I got the news as the Dr and RN were wheeling me into post op. In my stunned and my sedated state the Dr adds, "I'm not giving up on you tho, I have another plan and I think it'll work."
So like a sad old injured dog, I sit in the corner, licking my wounds, waiting for this human to come back and pet me on the head again to validate my existance. What a life.
Sorry to hear about your recent ordeal. Many of us have been through IVF trauma, so we know what it's like. I too was oversupressed on my first IVF (thanks lupron!) so I too couldn't respond. What is your antral follicle count? If it's low, you may want to consider natural or low-stim IVF. There are some women here who are doing it and having pretty good results. I agree with your doc--you've got a child and that is a hopeful sign that you can have another, even at 42.
Again, welcome to the board!
