Dr just got back to me about D&C. She can't get me in to surgery center until next Tuesday..I had been hoping to get this dealt with this week because next week Wed and Thur I have two big workdays offsite where I will be in a big room with our entire corporate team. Lots of team building and interacting etc. I'm even staying at the offsite location one night.
So my other options are to use the pills again and just deal with the pain and bleeding. I know what to expect so I am less concerned about it than DH. It was awful but manageable. Choice #2 is to have a D&C in the office under local anesthesia. I'm not so much a fan of this and would prefer the pills at home.
Choice #1 is the pills and my concern with that is complications but I could be through with things by the end of the week and have already requested to work from home this week so no disruption really in work. I didn't have any complications last time but my HCG levels took a long time to come down..I think it was about 8 weeks and that was trying plus it was painful and distressing. On the other hand I was in the comfort of my own home.
Choice #2 is the D&C on Tuesday and hope that I have no issues with going to the offsite on Wed. I really have no idea what to expect but remember after my hysteroscopy being quite sick that day and taking the next couple of days off to lay around on the couch. Benefits of this is that it would be over and from what I've read unless they miss some placenta the HCG levels will come down quite quickly. I've also read there's less bleeding and minimal cramping so there's that.
Choice #3 is the D&C in the office on Friday under local anesthesia in her office. This is my least favorite choice mostly because I have no idea what to expect and the fact that they routinely do these in the surgery center under general anesthesia makes me think this is something I might regret trying to do with a local...this right now is my least favorite choice. On the other hand I have had an HSG and the other die test forget the name and have heard that those are quite painful for a lot of people and did not have issues with them myself other than some bleeding after the HSG due to the catheter having to be put in multiple times after my RE popped the ballon that's supposed to hold it in place.
I think I may have made my decision to use the medically managed with pills but please if anyone can bear to relive a prior experience and let me know what their opinion is I would appreciate it so much. I know this is not an easy topic to relive though so I totally understand if you don't wish to share.
Thanks so much for all of you that have stuck with me even though I abandoned this forum for awhile. And while going through your own trials and troubles. It has meant so much to me to have this forum to say what I can't say in real life to people who are clueless about these things and it's meant even more to have the feedback and friendship from all of you.
