The surgery went well enough, I suppose. The hospital I went to really gets you in and out- I felt rushed to leave before I was ready. I didn’t appreciate that... also some of the nurses seemed to be getting annoyed with my incoherency. Oh well.
My belly incisions hurt, I ended up with two in total. She spent a few minutes with my husband to let him know what she found, and what she did. He took the best notes that he could, but he didn’t have a clue about what kinds of questions to ask. I suppose I will get some more in-depth information about everything when I call them tomorrow, or when I have my post-op. I have pictures, and they’re really vague but interesting.
So, I don’t know how many holes were drilled, but she took care of the cysts she could see. There were no signs of endometriosis. Tubes are still clear. However, despite ultrasounds and the HSG showing no uterine issues, there was apparently a small septum in there. A- said her exact words were “a little bit of a septum", and she doesn’t know if this septum had any involvement in our miscarriages or if it would cause problems.... but, she removed it to be safe. This truly came as a surprise, and now I am very interested on it’s true size (sorry, “a little bit of a septum” doesn’t cut it for me).
I am assuming the septum removal is why the plans have changed. I am to go ahead and stop the BCP now, and instead start taking Estradiol for two weeks. I don’t know the exact reason why, and am very curious. We should still be doing Clomid and Dexamethasone, but no clue when.
Now I am home, trying to take it easy. Actually, I was told to basically be on bedrest for two days. Oh the joy.
Here's some photos- more of me than you probably want to see! I don't have a scanner, so sorry about the glare because I had to use my camera.
Here are my ovaries before drilling-
Here they are after-
This is my uterus. The top two show the opening to my fallopian tubes. The bottom right photo is where she removed the septum from. I am not sure about the bottom left,I would assume it's before it was removed but I have no clue-
---ETA* I crack myself up right now. I was researching uterine septums, discovered that this is a genetic defect that occurred while I was in-utero. Well, I looked at my husband and laughed. I said, "How about that? I was born with a deviated septum and a uterine septum! Bwhahahahahaha!" See, I was born with a deviated septum too, and had surgery to correct it in 2003. Haha. Probably not as funny as the pain meds made me think it was, but right now it's hilarious!
