I need your help.
My EC was on Monday (19 eggs with 30+ follicles). I'm in absolute agony and don't know what to do. It has got worse... it's mainly lower abdomen but also my sides. It feels like I've pulled a muscle..like a bruised feeling inside but also a sharp stabbing pain particularly in my lower abdomen. I know some of this pain will be from the EC (it was very painful for me during the procedure...nothing like my first cycle) and even trapped wind could be making it worse. I find it sore to pee, laugh, walk, cough etc. It feels more muscular bit like it's torn.
I'm not sleeping well because of the pain and it's making me feel a bit sick when it's really bad (usually at night). I'm taking paracetamol, codeine (as little as possible as this can constipate) and anti sickness tablets when needed. I'm massaging the areas and applying a gentle heat, I'm drinking lots of clear fluids, peppermint tea, water, ginger tea, turmeric in water (yuck), and eating lots of protein (yogurt, chicken, nuts, eggs etc). I just can't get rid of the pain. I'm off my food as I feel "full" all the time.
I've rang the clinic twice now (tues and thurs) saying it's getting worse and they've said they're not worried but to rest up and take the drugs. I feel like they're not listening to me. I know my own body and I know how I felt in the first cycle and this is horrendous in comparison (this is cycle 2). Last night i had like a prickly feeling in my legs at the same time as the pain in my tummy. I was crying so hard it hurt my tummy more and hardly slept. It's really getting me down and that's not me. My lovely hubby is being supportive but he is at work most of the day (I've been on leave since EC). I'm worried that the clinic said im at risk of OHSS and my ET (5 day) is tomorrow. Any help or advice please? Xxx
