I had my 2 week follow-up today and everything is looking good! Pathology came back on my ovary and all the tissue was benign (we really didn’t expect it to come back malignant but it never hurts to check). I asked my doctor if they had any clue as to why the ovary kept swelling after the rupture and she told me that honestly they weren’t sure. It’s a little frustrating that I don’t have answers as to why this happened (in order to prevent it happening again in the future) but I guess it really doesn’t matter.
My doctor is very understanding to the fact that I am now an over-protective parent when it comes to my left ovary. It literally has all my eggs in its basket (heh.) so she is more than willing to occasionally meet with me and do ultrasounds to ensure that I do not have any large cysts brewing away. My next ultrasound to check the status of everything will be in 2 weeks.
I think for now, we will not be going back to our RE. Not only have we lost a lot of confidence in him, but we feel the best path for us right now is to see a normal endocrinologist to see if we can get my cycles regulated. Really my only issue to date has been the fact that I do not ovulate. We really never tried any treatment other than infertility drugs. So we want to give Metformin and anything else similar a chance to see if we could possible do this the old-fashioned way.
It goes without saying that we are currently really skeptical to jump back into IF drugs. This whole things started with Clomid and I am scared of losing my precious left ovary. (My preccciiioouusss!) So I figure maybe will give the natural thing 6 months or so to see if we can get me ovulating even every once in a while. Commmeee on Lefty!
By the way, I made up a poem. You all want to hear it? I know you are on the edge of your seats…
Ode to the Ovary
Ovary, Ovary, where fore art thou Ovary?
You turned big and black
And never came back
And now there is only Lefty!
*Bows* J thought it was sad and depressing when I told it to him, but I thought it was kind of funny. Or maybe I’m just a little sick in the head. Oh well.
