As you can probably tell by my title. I am having surgery to remove my tubes. I met with my RE on Thursday, she confirmed she suspected hydro.salpinges, and recomended we remove the tubes. I didn't even pause. I whole heartedly agree. They do nothing for me, except cause me pain. Now I know the pain is undoubtedly related to the hydro.salpinges. I've been prescribed antibiotics until surgery, and I'm starting hormone replacement therapy for my POF. I will be having a miscarriage panel run as well to try to rule out any other immune issues. We have a lot coming up!

My awesome RE (Dr. F) and I discussed our selection of donors, and clinics and their stats. I truly love Dr. F, and I really wish with all my heart that she could have been the one to make our dreams come true, but unfortunately their clinic just doesn't have the means. They are going to monitor us all the way through regardless of who we use, so one day we will rejoice with them. She definitely gave me a lot to think about. JD and I are going to take this time waiting for surgery to try to have our consult at Cre.Ate and we are also going to try to get more information about CC.RM. Shady45's stats just aren't that awesome. And I really don't want to make a snap decision. I've done that once and look where that got us. Plus the fact that we can only really afford one more cycle. We really need to feel like we went to the place that gives us the best odds of success. I definitely wish that JD had been able to come to the appointment with me yesterday, but one of us has to work.
It's funny I feel a little less stressed now that I know my tubes are coming out. Dr. F is actually sending me to a hospital about and hour away, the hospital here could do it, but the wait is long, and the Dr.'s aren't really fertility minded, so they might not remove both tubes. The Dr. I am going to go to has his own fertility clinic and actually mentored Dr F in laparoscpic surgery. I think maybe I feel more relaxed because we have more time to make our decsion of where to go for the next cycle. It gives us more time to figure out our finances. We also have a contract negotiation the summer which was stressing us both out. So hopefully, everything will keep falling into place at all the right times. Maybe this year is going to be different. At least we are being pro-active this time. I know in the future I will look back and say I tried everything I could.
