Well, it has been a nice break but the holiday is well and truly over and the hard graft must begin.
I don't want to start again. I am dreading the constant phone calls, the endless emails, the slight panic that I am missing something. Reading my notes, writing my notes, ticking off my to do list.
I'm not talking about my job. I went back to work a couple of days ago. That was fine.
Instead I have to psyche myself up for the ongoing saga of getting people to care about my womb and dealing with the NHS.
The plan, following my Christmas Eve operation, was to start me on Zoladex for one or two months. The plan, unfortunately wasn't relayed to the doctors I saw on Christmas Eve.
You may remember that they weren't even told what operation I was having, let alone the aftercare.
I tried my best to get this clarified whilst lying on a stretcher in my operation gear of support socks, disposable knickers and open backed dressing gown. Not the best position when one wants to be assertive about ones medical aftercare.
As I awoke from the anaesthetic the Doctor was there to say she had spoken to my Doctor and I was to carry on taking the pill I was currently on. And the next step would be discussed at my next appointment.
And therein lies the first problem:
I don't have a next appointment scheduled.
The second problem:
I only have enough of my current prescription to last until the 16 of January.
The third problem:
There is no point calling them immediately because I might as well wait until they have the latest biopsy results from the Christmas Eve appointment. I assume that all labs were closed over the Christmas period so I guess the earliest I'll get these is next week.
And so on Monday I'll start again. The ringing, the emailing, the generally being a pain in the arse. I don't relish my role as the most impatient patient. I hate it.
But as I learned before Christmas it really does reap results. And I would like at least one shot at IVF before my thirty fifth birthday - a mere 7 months away.
That isn't too much to ask for, is it?
