This is NOT a question on the 2WW and includes also a bit of a rant
At the end of May I had my right tube removed with an ectopic pregnancy, and at the same time I have been told that the left one is damaged at that my only change is IVF (quite a day!)
Since then, nothing has happened. I mean, I saw a consultant at my local NHS sub-fertility clinic, but no question has been answered, and I am left in this limbo of waiting for I don't know what, since no one has explained to me what is the next step. Should I wait for the NHS sub-fertility clinic? For the NHS funding? Should I do more test? Will my left tube be removed? I was not even able to speak to a gynaecologist because of NHS consultant said that this will be dealt by the IVF clinic if the NHS funding is granted (when? after what? by whom? and what if the IVF is not granted?)
I am getting frustrated, scared, stressed and considering that I am a control-freak this is honestly driving me nuts (and I am throwing this mostly on my partner). I have trouble working, I feel as I should do something, but there is nothing that can be done. I read six books on IVF, one on the emotional stress of infertility, and even one on parenting after infertility and one on adoption. I did a literature research on my physical issues. I have booked a private gynaecologist in my home country. I need to show myself that I am doing something, but I feel like a rat in a maze: running without getting anywhere.
I feel completely alone, left down by the system, and I can't speak with my parenting/pregnant friends. Also here everyone is discussing their treatments and I feel like an outsider.
I am aware that everyone had to wait to start treatments, so, lovely people here, how did you deal with this?
