I don't even know what to say. Background: 2002, I had a lap and was told my tubes were full of fluid, scarred badly (from a ruptured appendix in 1989) and they were beyond repair. They drained my tubes to alleviate the pain. That was when I had my first IVF consult. 2005, the tubes had filled back up with fluid and were the sizes of oranges. Did another lap and had tubes removed. Not just a tubaligation, but full on tubalectomy. Doctor said he'd never seen tubes swell so much without rupturing. I have color photos of the before and after. Those suckers are gone.
Had my saline sonogram on Monday, which required a pregnancy test. Negative. Had six vials of blood drawn today, one of which was a blood serum pregnancy test. Also did another urine pregnancy test. Both negative, as expected. My cycles are like clockwork, 28 days, and the only pills I take are prenatal vitamins and a vitamin D supplement for lack of sunshine.
Today they did an internal exam to check for damage to my cervix. Nothing. They sent me to radiology where I met with the doctor who performed the saline sonogram and he said he's never seen someone bleed like this after the sonogram, so he suspected a blood clotting issue. I took Tylenol before the sonogram on Monday, but no other meds that would cause clotting issues. Radiologist performed an internal ultrasound to check the lining of my uterus to compare to what it was Monday. Lining was thick, "good stripe." Then, while the guy still had the wand in me with one hand, he grabbed the phone with the other to call the doctor back in. Doctor walks in and says, "Oh my god."
Radiology guys shows him a mass in my uterus. Doctor says, "Oh, we saw that on Monday. It's her ovary." Radiologist says, "No, that's her ovary way down there." They ruled out a cyst. They said it's near the horn, so in the top of my uterus. Their best guess is ectopic pregnancy. How. The. Frick?? They ran blood clotting tests and those came back fine. My HCG is .05. They dated the empty sac at 5w2d.
It was pure chaos in there. They are putting the ultrasound on a disc for my RE...We're so confused right now. No answer on why I'm still bleeding, and now I need an MRI to get to the bottom of whatever this sac is. The radiology guy said the sac had a double ring around it, so he's confident that's what it is, and the doctor said sometimes tubes grow back...that's more common in a tubaligation than a tubalectomy, I would think. I must have super eggs if that thing is a gestational sac.
Twin boys due 7/25/12
