One Step Closer – MRI Date

I got the call today about my MRI. D-Day is Monday July 18th at 9:30am. Based on that date, I get to start my Clomid tonight! By the start of next week, the side effects will really begin to kick in. When I was giving my supervisor my update, he let me know that he would be at the beach all next week! I told him he may want to spread the word that I may be out of sorts (I work with all men). I am thinking of putting an “Enter at Your Own Risk” sign on my door especially since I noticed tonight that the dose they’ve given me is double what I took for our fertility treatments. That’s right. I’ll be doubly crazy. Since I don’t have a full set of ovaries, I’m not sure how the side effects will really go but I know for sure I can expect a lot of pain as she suspects that the ovarian tissue is lodged in scar tissue and as it swells, it will cause all of those adhesions to pull. If I’m not around much next week, you now will know why!

    Wow!! I can’t imagine the pain you must suffer daily and now you are going to be taking medicine that will have these kinds of effects on you?? It’s amazing you can function at all. Praying for you.

    Praying for you and that the effects won’t be too bad and that the MRI will show the info you need. Hang in there!

    I know I’ve stopped by before but it has been a while. This upcoming procedure does not sound like any kind of fun! YUCK! Hang in there.
    I checked out your weight loss and training page – totally inspiring. GOOD FOR YOU!

    it’s funny…some men get a bit squemish about the details of what endo is, but i actually think they can be BETTER for sympathy in bad spells. too many women just say, “eh, i get cramps too”…or, more often, don’t say it but think it. i want to ask “really, ever been ready to go to the ER from the pain” (or have gone…i haven’t but only b/c i just doubt they could help much). men seem to give more credence to the pain, perhaps b/c they just can’t imagine all the complexities of a “normal” female body, let alone one with complications

      I feel the same way when people assume a Migraine is “just a headache” and suggest popping a tylenol!
