one week

Yesterday I went to the hospital and got a copy of my CT-Scan, and US films.  GROSE.  I have seen plenty of ultra sound pictures of unborn babies, but my ultra sound is just nasty.  My left ovary looks like a twisted burnt sausage, with a grapefruit on the side.

Next Wednesday is my appointment in Atlanta with the reproductive surgeon.  I am going there  for a second opinion, regarding my possible endometriosis diagnosis.

I am hoping that he will be able to do the surgery laparoscopically, because my recovery time will be nothing, compared to being cut open.   In the back of my head I am  also hopeful that both of ovaries can be saved, and that I won't have to harvest my eggs, or conceive via IFV.  Cause I ain't rich.

However I know thats likely not going to be the outcome.  I would be happy if takes the left one and leaves me with the right one.

Fingers crossed.
