Good News

My RE called Friday and told me that after reviewing my MRI films with all  the doctors in the practice, it appears that I do not have a large fibroid protruding into my uterine cavity.  So I do not need the myomectomy.  My tubes do look weird, but my HSG showed that they were clear.  So we will keep the surgery date and do a laparascopy to check on my tubes, and to remove any scar tissue or whatever it is that is left over in my uterus.  We could tell from my sonohysterogram that there was something there.  And my RE mentioned that it is either scar tissue or degenerated fibroid.  So that has to come out.  And I do have a fibroid in the uterine wall.  But as long as it isn't distorting the shape of my uterus then it doesn't have to be removed. I feel so lucky.  I don't have the big incision or the 6 weeks recovery time.  A woman on the nest said that after her myomectomy she wasn't allowed to try to conceive for 5 months.  Aack.  I also learned that it is only a month less wait to try after a lap.  So I'm relieved.

There is still a chance that if my RE finds something weird during the lap that she will go ahead and do the big incision while I'm there and anesthetized.  And she will do whatever she has to, to make my uterus ready for a baby.  And I'm cool with that.  But hopefully it is just the lap and my tubes are free and clear.  

The other good news is that my husband's Sperm analysis came back normal.  So that means back when he had the poor sperm quality last June (the reason they cancelled out IUI) really was due to a bad fever he had, and there is no sperm issue for us.  

So I'm a very happy girl today.

Phew!
Did you suspect it might have been the fever that was the cause of the bad SA? Great news that there is no sperm issue, and good news on the fibroids (or lack thereof)!

I hope things go well with the lap and that they don't have to do the big incision. I'll be praying for good things to come out of the lap! ((hugs)) ♥
