I go tomorrow to the hopital where I've had many of my surgeries done to sign a release to have my tissue slides sent to a doctor in New York for testing! Out of my 9 years and 10 failed pregnancies, no doctor has ever taken this approach (testing the tissues from my surgeries)but this doctor told me that by going to the "scene of the crime" alot of times is where you find the "villain", well it sounds logical to me! I've been through so many tests and surgeries, this sounds so easy, it almost scares me. But I'm very excited, I don't think I'll be sleeping good for a while, I'm so anxious! Don't know how long this process will take, but I'll reveal results when I get them. Just wanted to share, atleast I have "hope" right now! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Leslie
Hi- My name is Vicki and I have done a total of 5 IVFs. We had one that was successful and have a daughter. When we talked with a different doctor a couple of years ago he had a laboscopy done to see if my tubes, although blocked, had some type of leaking which would make the pregnancy not take. I wish I remembered more, but I don't. When they did the procedure, if my tubes had that, my ob/gyn was going to remove the tubes and then the IVF would have a better chance. My tubes did not have this leakage, therefore we decided not to try the IVF again. We just felt the odds weren't there to spend anymore money with it. I don't know if this any help since you do get pregnant, but thought I would share this. Good luck, you have my prayers through this wait. Vicki
P.S.- Maybe this will ring a bell for someone who knows something about this and can give you more info.
Thank you all for your "hopes and prayers", it means alot to me. I think we all know how important support through all this is! I left work an hour early and got all the papers signed. I cried on the way home and I'm not sure why..alot of mixed feelings, I guess. I'm sure we've all had those a few times! It does feel good to have some sort of hope right now! I'm just so anxious! Thank you all again so much for the good luck wishes, it means alot to me! Your my support team and I am yours <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> I'll let you know....Leslie
