This morning Husband and I went back to the specialist for yet ANOTHER sonogram so that we could get the "all clear" to begin injectionables once again. We had no reason to be worried because the last couple of times we have gone through this it has always been a quick in and out appointment- we go in, they do the ultrasound, say "yep everything looks fine" and then we are on our way ready to start the next round of treatment.
Today's appointment didn't exactly go that way........I'll get to that in a sec. First here is a pic Husband took while waiting in the sono room:
First we looked at the uterus: perfect. Then we looked at the right ovary: perfect again. Finally, off to look at the left ovary: far from perfect.......this was what we found:
See the HUGE black circle with a "c" on it?? That lovely polka dot is a cyst- a large one :( Good news is I have sonograms so often that is very unlikely the cyst could be in any way harmful- since it wasnt there before. The tech said that it likely developed as a late reaction to the clomid I had taken last month. It is fluid filled and about 1 inch in size- which to me seems weird because wouldnt I notice something that size developing? Apparently not, if it continued to get larger (to about 2 inches) then I would start to possibly feel some pain or have other reactions to it.
So now the bad news- it is very likely we will NOT be able to do treatment this month. After finding the cyst, the tech decided to draw some blood to run some tests and told me they will call me within the next 24 hours. Since my appointment today was just with the tech (because it should have been an in and out type of appointment) I wasn't able to speak with my doctor and will have to wait until he has reviewed the sono and bloodwork results.
I hate the thought of going ANOTHER month without treatment! These past 4 weeks have been rough knowing there was nothing I could do while I sat and waited to complete the birth control pack. Now its even worse because I have all the new injectionables waiting patiently in my fridge. Husband and I are just hoping that the bloodwork results will come back positive- until then I am anxiously awaiting the phone call!
