Hello to all, sorry for the long post!
Having had ivf with a miscarriage and a failed cycle we are going into a frozen cycle. I have a complex history which includes radiotherapy resulting in hypothyroidism from the age of 12.
When starting our ivf journey no one checked or mentioned my thyroid prior treatment, I mentioned it on a couple of occasions but it was always disregarded. It was only when I had my miscarriage a colleague of mine from work ( a fellow nurse) mentioned it to me and the risks in early pregnancy that I looked into my levels. They were high and when going into our 2nd fresh cycle were told it would be OK having TSH levels of 6.1 with a repeat prior to transfer of 6.9 and normal T3 and T4. We went ahead and it didn't take. I appreciate that these things happen however feel I have been mismanaged and now feel frustrated as this is our final chance to have a child.
Secondary to this another grievance, throughout my treatment I had made it very clear I have a reaction to fentanyl so it was clearly stated on my notes preoperatively and spoken about prior to my second egg collection. I also had a red wrist bad on highlighting my reaction to the drug. In theatre they gave me fentanyl and post opp I have an awful reaction. At the time I wasn't aware I had been given the drug until a week later and one of the nurses called to check how I was and explain that I had been given it.
Does anyone have a similar experience? Or any suggestions on how we could approach this?
