No Surgery Needed


The results are in: no surgery needed to correct my arcuate uterus! Dr. C called me today and said that all the REs in the practice reviewed my recent hysteroscopy; between them all there’s over a hundred years’ of experience. They all agreed that my “dent was moderate” (his words), but not enough so that I should get it fixed surgically.

I’m, of course, good with this. I see the situation kinda like a car: you can drive a dented car and still get around just fine. I guess dented uteruses can be seen the same way? Cause we all know how similar cars and uteruses are….

And—since a few of you guys suggested a recurrent miscarriage panel to me—I floated the idea by Dr. C.  To my surprise, he was totally down with it. He said it was definitely worth doing the panel before transfer, and that he’d have nursing call me to schedule the blood test. So a big thank you to those of you who mentioned the idea; otherwise I wouldn’t have known to even ask for it. You guys are total rock stars and I heart you.

Dr. C and I are on the same page with things right now, which is great: There’s nothing worse than fighting your doctor on something you want done but which he/she doesn’t think is needed. Right now I’m, like, in love with my RE. DH understands. We all have our doctor crushes from time to time.

I’m feeling better about things. Now I just need NO MORE SCARES between now and transfer time to maintain my good perspective. I’m guessing the panel will be drawn soon and I’ll hopefully have a very non-updated update to post afterward.

    1. Yeah, I had the blood work done this morning, but they said it’ll take about 2 weeks to come back. I’m so spoiled with same-day results that I just expected this to be same day too. Here’s to a different kind of TWW!


    1. Ugh, that’s the total worst when they want you to get stuff done that you don’t want to have done or vice versa. Such a frustrating, powerless feeling. I’m very loyal with my docs and if I find a good one I stick by him like glue 🙂

      Hope all is well with you. Looking forward to your next post!

  2. that’s really good news – about no surgery and the doc progressing with the miscarriage panel, just shows what a great group of people we’ve got on here, and the usefulness of sharing!


    1. Yep, you ladies are so great! I’d debated on posting any of this, but now I’m so glad that I did! Hope all is coming along well with you, I’ve not commented much but I’m def still following your blog!
