New Protocol

I just got back from the doctor and I think that it was a pretty good appointment. Well, I mean how good can a post negative appointment go???? My RE does not understand while we are still here??? Not too comforting, but we have come up with a new protocol. When the time does come around for us to do another FET, she wants to add Lovenox shots and another steroid therapy after I finish with the round of Prednisone. We are also doing more blood work!!!! I guess that is the answer if you can't figure what is wrong....just do more blood work...check this....check that. I am going on Friday for the blood work and one of the tests I have to do is a fasting glucose tolerance test. In the past I have not done very well at this test so I am hoping that I can make it through the test without passing out. She is also testing again for the endometriosis marker and if it is elevated again, we will then talk about doing the surgery to see what damage I have and repair it. I also have two different acupuncturists to go to, one is local and the other is located in Houston. I will go to the one locally for awhile up until my transfer and then the one in Houston will do a treatment right before my transfer and right after my transfer. The nurse asked me if I had an aversion to needles and I just laughed and said no. I mean who could make it to the point that we are at and have a problem with needles??? So there is our new plan of action.

That's so great that you have a plan. And it sounds like a good plan to me.

I'm catching up on your posts, and even though it's late I wanted you to know how sorry I am about your bfn. However, I'm so glad to hear that you've got a plan and a new protocol. I'm glad that your RE is taking every precaution and wants to check you more. Good luck on your blood work and the fasting glucose on Friday. :)
