Polypectomy, here I come

So no baby-making this cycle. But it’s not all bad news.

Dr. H took another look this morning and didn’t see anything at first. So she performed an impromptu sonohysterosalpingogram. Basically, she pushed saline solution into my uterus to get a better look. It was actually really uncomfortable and there was more cramping than the HSG. Maybe because I was caught off guard and couldn’t prepare myself mentally for the procedure?

Anyway, the 2 polyps are still there hanging out at the top of my uterus. Both are just under 1 cm, but because they’re over 1 cm when combined and right next to each other, Dr. H wants them out.

The good news: she’s hustling to schedule the polypectomy this cycle. She immediately put me on birth control pills to keep my lining from thickening. She’ll give me some possible procedure dates in the next day or two.

We’re gonna do it in the clinic, rather than the hospital – where I’d be knocked out. She said I seem to have a high tolerance for pain, so I should be fine (!)  Which is ok with me, actually. I’ve never been knocked out for surgery, so I have no problem doing it in the clinic while awake.

So that’s where we are. I see V tomorrow for acupuncture, so I’ll fill her in on where we are and see what she recommends on her end.
Until then, just more waiting.

  1. Good luck with that! I hope it all works out and then you can get back on the baby making train ASAP! And the saline sonogram wasn’t too terrible for me when it was happening, but afterwards the cramping was almost intolerable! So, at least that’s good that you didn’t experience much of that…
