First thing I noticed after the vag cam went in at today's u/s: my lining cysts are back. But RE says they're just from too much estrogen and will go away once we start progesterone shots -- he's not worried. (At my last doc, those would've cancelled my cycle -- dude...)
My follies are growing slowly, but steadily. RE switched my meds now to include Menapur. He also said I will most likely be getting OHSS. His goal is to make sure it's mild-moderate and not severe. He has some steps to make sure we minimize it:
-I'm to start eating salty soups around my retrieval and will be on that good ole' high salt diet for 3-4 weeks no matter what
-He'll give me an IV to rehydrate after retrieval (which is one of the things that happens in the ER for OHSS so I love that)
-He'll have me on "prophylactic Percocet" after my retrieval
If I still can't stand the pain - I should call him and go to the hospital
Last time I had no plan and didn't know to call my RE. I went to a hospital where no one understood what I had. This time my doc will meet me there and take care of me himself.
We are very nervous about how uncomfortable I will be. If there's another worst night of my life waiting to happen -- but mostly excited that the cycle is going well so far, that those cysts shouldn't get in my way -- and that we'll be getting eggs (fingers crossed) to hopefully make great embies.
