    Firstly Suziq.. I am so sorry.. I know that nothing i can say will make you feel better, but i am thinking of you. Marg welcome on board and we hope your stay is short and sweet.

    Well back from the Dr's in sydney today. Well the first thing he said was, 'very unusual, like nothing i have seen before', but 'not unusual in a bad way'. I have bizarre endo type lesions/?fibroids on my tubes/bladder and a acutely anteverted uterus. Basically i am a gynealogical FREAK!!! My gynea is going to do some more surgery, but as assistant and with Dr Michael Cooper as the surgeon. Apparently he is the King of gynea in Australia. Head of obs and gobs at both RPA and St Vinnies, and also head lecturer at Sydney Uni. So lets hope he can come to the party with all the letters and accreditations after his name.. anybody with any details on this Dr would be appreciated if you could let me know. He has his own website which i checked out.. seems good. I know my gynea wouldn't put me into the hands of someone nasty !!!

    Surgery will be done sometime next year.

    Anyways enough about me, hope everyone is doing ok.. love and hugs always leis xx

    Leis, seems I felt a bit the same when I had my 2 pgs, had a few different drs looking at me because it was 'different', but it felt good in a way because I knew I was getting a lot of good attention & would be done right. Hope you feel the same.
    What's the go for in between now & surgery?

    Hi Tam

    The go between surgery and now, is nothing, i just want to forget about IVF and TTC for the moment. I am the type of person who doesn't like any type of stress. I know that TTC and IVF will always be in my mind, but i don't want to get infactuated with it all and have it ruling my life. I am just about to start my perioperative nursing certificate through the college of nursing in Dec, so that will take up alot of time.

    My report also said that, there is very little chance of us conceiving naturally, although it is possible (like a bloody miracle) whilst my tubes are in this state. Although they are messy on the outside with adhesions etc, suprisingly they are still patent... Hah? work that out????

    And yes Tam, I do feel good knowing that i have both the Drs fussing over me. I also feel that because of my situation I will always stick in my gyneas head and that i will never be the average Jo Blow pt of infertility to him!!!!

    love and hugs leis xxx

    Hi girls.

    Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself too, as I've also been added as a moderator for this forum.

    For those of you that don't know me, I'm Cherie. My DH and I have been TTC for about 12 months now, and I've been recently diagnosed with PCOS. DH has a low sperm count and a high number of abnormal sperm. We're starting the Clomid rollercoaster next cycle, and DH is doing research into how to make his spermies grow up nice and big and strong.

    I've still got my moderator training wheels on, so please be patient with me lol. Looking forwards to getting to know you all a bit better.

    Hi Kirsty and Cherie
    Welcome to our quiet little world. We're a genuinely kind and supportive lot in this forum.
    Of course we'll have you both!!!
    Cherie, LOL at you and your mod training wheels. What do they attach to? Like you, I also have a huge interest in aromatherapy, I got my certificate in 2001. I hope your TTC journey will be short, good on DH for doing his homework! That can be half the battle sometimes. He's a keeper.

    Thanks for all the good wishes - it really makes a difference. I'm just about to jump in the car for the 3 hour drive to the Clinic to check how my follicles are progressing. My ovaries appear to be camera shy so it's always difficult for them to see clearly - but fingers crossed there is more than the two they found last time!

    I think I've been lucky that I have had no side effects from any of the drugs so far - although I wonder if that's a bad thing because if I were having more side effects it might mean more eggs! I'm a little nervous today because the Clinic have received some new whiz bang equipment (with a heap of Specialists popping in!) and they want me to be a guinea pig! Not sure what to expect! Then after all that it's the 3 hour drive back home. I might be falling asleep at work tomorrow!

    Thanks again for all the support, it's just amazing being able to share all of this with other women who are going through the same things.

    Hi Marg

    Good luck with the follie check up honey. I know what you mean about doing all the driving. Some days i used to drive for over an hour to the clinic and if it was a weekend i had to drive to sydney which is 3.5 hours south. I think this makes the treatment hard sometimes, all the travelling. My DH and I moved from sydney to the country to start a family two years ago... cheaper morgage better lifestyle to raise kids.. if we knew now what we didn't know then we would of stayed in the city!!!

    Funny how life works.. good luck

    love and hugs leis xxx
