Hello lovely ladies!

Sorry for the delay, but surgery went well and most of my pelvic peritoneum was stripped along with my anterior and posterior cul de sacs (as per this article:http://www.preventmiscarriage.com/lapar ... nancy.html)

Didn't even need pain killer and was on my feet the day after..

The only problem is, i may have trained my bladder to pee a bit too often than is required, so have to retrain it to empty all at once and not every hour, otherwise i have to go back in and get a catheter for 48 hours and then retrain it properly...

so at the moment, i'm sitting here waiting for AF... I had endometriosis excised 2 days after I ovulated, but i stupidly went and had my FSH/LH and oestrogen tested on CD22 and my FSH was 4.5 but oestrogen was a whopping 244 and LH was 3.4... was hoping i would know where i was in my cycle but i'm now not so sure.. it was probably silly doing hormone testing a week after endo excision.

My Dr Braverman bloods have been taken and are currently being reported on, so my followup with Braverman is not for another 5 weeks.. I will let you all know what transpires, but in the meantime, how are you all and where are you all up to?

Dear Penny, glad to hear that everything went well! Hopefully the problem will be gone now. It's always stressful with surgeries, and I think quite often they leave some mild side-effects for some time. Wish you are done with it, and that everything goes much more smoothly from now on.

I did the ERA (endometrial receptivity array) test about 10 days ago, still waiting for the results. If the test comes as receptive, it would be a huge step forward for me. I think it also checks NK cell activity in the endometrium, so it might be important also for immunity issues. I had a bit of a scare because after tons of hormones and a lining of 6.2mm (thick for me), AF came very light, so I panicked and thought maybe something was very wrong with me. I talked with the doctor today, and she said that actually she removed most of my lining for the ERA test, hence this is normal - but I had been worried the whole week-end.

Today I am starting a brand new cycle, will try G-CSF this time.

So hopefully we all make good progress. Lots of hugs, and take very good care!

Hello Alma (kisses and hugs for you!)

Oh wow, you did the ERA! Have you received the results? I am very curious as I would like to do it as well!! I find when they do a hysterscopy or any type of biopsy in the uterus, my period the following month is super light, so don't worry, it's understandable that it's a bit light following the ERA. I am so glad you found someone who is happy to help and hasn't thrown the book at you.

Congrats on starting a new cycle! Is this an FET or a natural cycle or a mock one? Will you be transferring anything this cycle or having a look to see how you go?

I have recovered!! But I bit the bullet and did Dr Braverman's immune panel testing.. waiting for those results.

Please let me know how your cycle is going.. I can't do anything yet, I have another 3 weeks but we tried naturally this month because my cycle reset after the lap, which was weird, so I just had another cycle and ovulation, but DH and I hadn't been BDing so while we got one in, it's probably no good as his sperm was old!

Looking forward to hearing from you and so exciting and rooting for you my love!!! xoxo

Hi honey, I have recovered.. it was a quick recovery.... but now i am kicking myself as I forgot to ask my RE to ablate the surface of my ovaries.. I'm hoping he saw nothing and that's why he didn't do anything to them.....

How are things going with you?

Hey honey, all well here! I've recovered! Surgery to remove endometriosis is a bit of a piece of cake... it doesn't hurt.. there are no nerves there or anything so it's fairly simple and non-painful surgery, at least that's been my experience....

Hi Penny!
Glad to hear that you have fully recovered!! And glad to hear that the surgery was easy and painless. I need to have lap to remove fibroids too at some point. I was told I have no endo when I have ultrasounds but who knows..maybe I do. I know for sure i have adenomyosis.
