I'm due to see the consultant on thursday and hopefully soon a lap to treat this hydrosalpinx. I had a diagnostic lap 2 years ago but they said it was normal apart from a small cyst. looking back i wished i had pushed for more help & info but the gp said my pain was ibs.. grr.
anyway, now i finally have a diagnosis as after i had been trying to get pregnant for 7 months i told the gp i have lots of pain still (and no pregnancy). I have regular but short periods.
I got sent for a pelvic scan last week .internal was extremely painful and i thought i will put up with this as i may get some answers finally.
I was told i have a cyst on the right tube and fluid in the left tube. Later on the pain got severe and i couldn't sleep I had palpitations, nausea etc. i went to a & e. they gave me gas & air, then codeine.
Now i have a referall to see a consultant on thursday but i am confused and upset as they have sent me a letter asking me to have another internal pelvic scan. They have not said why and it was only a week ago i had the last one. I'm very worried this will be extremely painful . I will try to contact the hospital doctor on monday to ask about this.
Personally i really want the left tube removed as soon as possible as i feel like its making me constantly ill as if i were fighting an infection.
Just wondering does anyone have any similar experience of this and what choices were they given, what treatment is available? I had anti-biotics in the past but i don't think thats an option now.
I am aware that ivf can still be done if tubes are removed. The trouble is there seems to be little information out there about this condition. If there is anyone out there with info and in the same boat, please contact me! much apreciation , thanks! x
