I got a call with the biopsy results at lunchtime and they showed no change. Still the Endometrial hyperplasia, still with mild atypia (essentially atypical cells which are pre-cancerous but NOT cancer).
Which isn't really surprising considering it clearly hasn't come out of any orifice that I've been checking and I doubt it is the sort of thing that can be reabsorbed.
So good news is that it hasn't got any worse.
I had a Doctors appointment today anyway, and the results came a couple of hours before and here is the plan.
Tomorrow I get a progesterone coil fitted for 6 months. Yes, for the uninitiated that is birth control.
Once that has been removed along with, hopefully, the gunk that is my womb lining then I will start Interuterine Insemination around July time.
Where have you heard this before? Maybe in August when I thought it would happen in October or when I was hanging on for the February appointment.
You'll excuse me if I don't get all over excited again.
The husband is on a real high, "It's fucking brilliant you don't have cancer." Yeah, I guess it is. But after the initial shock I never really thought I did. Maybe because I just couldn't get my head round the idea.
I just feel deflated, like all the energy has been sucked out of me, I have lots of thoughts and questions spinning round my head and no answers.
- It isn't even February and I already know there is no way that I will have a kid in 2009.
- 5mg of progesterone made me feel nauseous, what will a progesterone coil do?
- My friend who has just announced her pregnancy will have had a child before I can even start to try again
- Who knew I was so prophetic when I named this blog?
