I think I gave up a pint of blood on Friday! I finally went for my m/c panel. I had been delaying it as I knew I had to pay for some of the tests and my debit card is not working. (stupid chip cards) It took an hour and a half, the lab was rammed. And it cost me $400.00! Yikes! And I didn't even get 2 of the tests done. They couldn't do the karyotyping as the RE didn't fill out the right form, and they couldn't find one of the protein tests she had ordered. Another trip will be required. Great!!! I had my tsh and free t4 run while I was there. Might as well check on my Hashi's.
I am in the process of getting referred to a new Endo. Mine won't see me again without a new referral and he takes almost 6 months to get into. Forget that! So I visited my GP on Thursday, asked him for a referral and got the requisition for my tsh. Of course he wanted to know how everything was... I almost asked him "Do you really want to know?" I told him about the surgery that's coming up. He reacted like I was destroying my body. Honestly I don't think I was that nice to him. I am quite bitter with my GP and OB/Gyn. I fucking told them something was wrong 5 fucking years ago and no one listened. Now we are so far gone only butt loads of money and cutting out pieces of my body can apparently help. My tubes really should have been removed when I had surgery 2 years ago. But my OB/Gyn was still thinking to himself ohhhh she's 27, looks really healthy, one partially open tube that balloons is fine...! Ummm actually no it isn't!!!
Y'know OH.IP (Ontario Health Care) is good but working the system so you get seen when you should is a nightmare. It sounds like free health care, but I can assure you, we have spent a small fortune on all of our ttc. None of the insurance companies have any type of coverage. The bonus I guess is that I don't have to pay for my surgery to remove my tubes. Woot! Woot! I still haven't heard from the surgeon so I have no idea when Operation Tube Removal is going to happen. I hope sooner than later. I started the antibiotics and I really have noticed some changes already. Ohhh and can I Thank God for HRT. Hot flashes have finally left!!! Yahhh!!!
That's my update for those who wonder. I hope everyone else is well! I may be quiet lately but I'm always checking in on everyone's progress. Much Love!
