IVF Here I come

I had such a great appointment with my doctor. He did an u/s and looks like the endo is calm and ovaries looked good. My re wants us to do ivf, since the endo was so so aggressive. But he really thinks that its going to work. He said I could try on my own but since the endo was so aggressive that it could come back before we get pg. I can not wait for the endo to come back and start over and be in pain again. So Dh and I decided to go this way and the doctor gave me a depo-provera shot until our ivf cycle.

The trip from Hell

The day started off crappy because I was wearing a white shirt and while at work got a long black stain across my boob. After I got my shirt cleaned everything was going smoothly until we got into Boston. I love Boston but driving in downtown Boston I'm not so sure. My mom and I got totally lost for over an hour and half. I has called the clinic to let them to I was lost and asked for directions. One of the staff members was able to give clear directions.

specialist was going to give me the answers I needed. It turns out that it was just a big waste of time. That guy asked me "why I was here". I'm like what? This doctor is looking at me like I am nuts. He did not understand why I was there. This guy is supposed to be the top in his field so I would think he could have done something for me. His conclusion is go home have immunology Finally got there and had to wait. I know it was going to be long but 4 hours? I had no idea. When I did finally get seen by a doctor it was not what I was hoping. I thought the Uveitis bloodwork and then we will talk. I am so angry I just want to cry.

Maybe if I had a flare up things might have been different. I have not had a flare up since October and in November I was finally clear of it for the first since I ever started with this crap. I thought that I would not take my eye drops for a entire week hoping that I would get a flare up but nothing. I know he has helped other people but I am just not sure if I want to go back to him.
We finally leave the clinic after 6:30 and got lost again. I could not believe it. It was a nightmare. This time almost 2 hours lost and thought I am never getting out of this city. We asked about 5 different people and they did not even know what we were asking. As if we had two heads or something. Finally got home around 11pm.

lupron hell/Uveitis Appt.

It has been a month since I had my last lupron shot. The side effects have been killer. The one that I hate the most is the night sweats. There is nothing like waking up soaked with water and warm. The hot flashes are ok but hard to deal with at work. I have a fan sitting right next to me. The add-back therapy does seem to help a bit but will be glad to be off of it.

I'm very nervous about my specialist appointment. I know it will be a long a consult but worth it to find out why I am still dealing with the uveitis. It has been 9 months of eye drops. From what I hear the specialist is top in his field and might just be the best in the world. So I know he will give me some answers I am looking for.
