Dr Update and Greetings from Boone, NC

I had my doctor appointment on Friday as mentioned. I will be as brief as possible: my endo is probably back. The Dr. doesn't want to do another laparoscopy, but is willing to do a hystroscopy. He really doesn't feel that my septum is causing any problems, as it is barely noticeable, but if he is going to do the hystroscopy, it may as well be fixed. The doc said that we could do as many IUI's as we wanted...he would be honest, that he didn't have a lot of faith in it's success, but that he would do whatever we desired. He did confide in me that he and his wife took 6 tries before they were successful. I have a bit of a bacterial infection (apparently, K and I have been doing so much baby dancing that the ph balance is abnormal down there--wish K could of be there to hear that one). He gave me an antibiotic for that. We discussed my panic attacks, and thankfully, Dr. D decided that I probably did need to be on some meds to ease my anxiety, especially since I am no longer sleeping at night. We discussed previous dr. appts that I had at an RE's office. (I posted those results here.)

I am going back Jan 21 for a saline ultrasound to take another look at the septum and my right ovary--which was a bit enlarged and the reason he feels that my endo has reared it's ugly head again. So basically, I got some really good nerve pills to help me sleep, a pap smear--which I pray is normal after 3 years, some antibiotics for this bacterial infection that no one knows how long I've had, and another doctor's appt to look forward to.

We are officially on our first family vacation. K and our two sons, our dogs Kooper and Karder, are safely in Boone awaiting my friends graduation tomorrow from ASU. I can't think of a better place to be right now. The excitement of their 3rd strait national championship is still in the air. K is alumni from there,and I will be attending a cohort program beginning in Aug 08 offered by ASU in my hometown! Can't think of a better time to be a Mountaineer!

I'm glad you had something fun this past weekend! It's good to just get away. I'm so sorry that the endo is back and that you need MORE testing on top of the discouraging news. I'm glad you got an anti-anxiety med. I have several. :) Seriously, I think they should spike the water supply with pro.zac and ati.van.

Hope you had a good time and that the infection cleared right up!
