Well, Tuesday was follow up after final egg collection. Ironically, last EC was the best as we have a six cell and a couple of 4 cells as well. In total nine frosties. Consultant wants me to do another aqua scan (not keen) another thyroid blood test and blood glucose test....saying that hypothyroidism and diabetes are very closely linked...Er, BULL DUNG, you either have one or the other, not both. Apparently the fibroid specialist wants updated test results before we can be referred to the Portland in London.
Then he dropped the bombshell - 'we are looking at defrosting 2-3 embryos at each transfer stage because with your age (45) and 'weight' there is only a 3-5% chance of success.
a) At 45 (and obese apparently) I was still able to produce healthy eggs producing nine (9) healthy embryos...no nothing wrong with my body!! despite what the 'norm'
b) I should have been informed right at the beginning of our IVF process that my weight was/is a 'problem'.
My mother's health is getting worse month by month and if I have to wait till I reduce my weight to be able to have Embryo transfers then that is just not good enough. I DON'T want 2-3 embryos transferred at once; if conditions are not good enough for one embryo...they most certainly will not be good enough for 2-3 embryos.
Frustrated, annoyed at everyone at the moment and I have no one to vent to... I just feel that I have come so far and been hammered into a standstill. NO, I will not be going on a diet...my thyroid is shot to hell, despite what the NHS blood tests say and my metabolism is so slow, the local snails and slugs are raising money for a mobility scooter for my metabolism....
Just think that it is time to call the whole thing off and concentrate on a house full of cats...
