Hey- I got in with a super special GYN doc that I used to work for and just love but didn't go to her before because she no longer does OB. So, she basically said that the other ob should've done a d&c 2 wks ago, and that there was no reason for the every 48 hr hcg checks. Once a week wouldve been find after the initial one time 48 hr check. If I continue to bleed for another week or if my hcg this coming monday doesn't drop below 50 then she will probably go in and do a laproscopic surgery to clear things out. She also sent me to a good friend of hers who is an RE and very good- he's opening his own clinic with all kind sof neat new-fangled machines and stuff! :o) he opens on Oct.1st. Until then she will get me back on track and get this m/c to clear out of my system. I felt like this huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders today, I trust her like no one else in my life- she is a fabulous doctor! i feel so much better tonight. She gave me some bextra for all the cramping, its an nonsteroidal antiinflammatory. It seems to have helped a little so far. It felt so good to be validated. I will be writing a few letters this week. One will be to my ob to let her know about how awful the staffing is at the clinic and how it has turned me away. The other will be to the medical board of WA about the RE that I saw a few weeks ago. I have decided that if I remain silent then more women will be hurt and I just don't want that to happen. I didn't even come close to describing how I have been treated the last 2 weeks and in the past- I just don't want to go there.
thanks for caring girls! Keep up the ttc, I will be joining you all in just a few short months again :o)
btw..I got to meet Julie in person tonight, and I just have to say that she is just as sweet and wonderful as she is on here. And even more beautiful!
