Resolution… Of Sorts.

To follow up on the previous post, Dr. K’s office called me back.

He thinks my ultrasound scans look good, but he wants to let the follies mature for a couple more days and then take another look.

He also wants me to continue the Menopur.

Tonight was to be my last dose, but they want me to continue through Monday night, and then come in for another ultrasound on Tuesday.

No biggie.  I can deal with a few more needles, I guess.

The issue is that the insurance fiasco I had last week is back in full swing…

To call in more meds, the pharmacy needs prior authorization.  The insurance company rarely does them in one day, and even with a rush order, they may not get to it in the next two hours before they close for the weekend.

If that’s the case, Dr. K’s office will call my script into a local pharmacy and hope that they have it in stock.

And then this other Very Interesting Thing happened…

The NP at the office told me, on the down-low, that sometimes patients don’t use all of their meds in a cycle, and they donate them to the office for disposal.  The good doctor doesn’t like to throw them away in case of situations like this one…

So the NP said that if I can’t get my hands on the meds I need through insurance and/or a local pharmacy, that I am to come to their office in the morning and I will mysteriously leave with what I need.

It’s shady, and I like it.  🙂

More updates later – unless I’m busy doing 30 to life for possession of unauthorized medication!  😉

Friday, July 27th, 2012.  CD11.

So I just got back from my first monitoring ultrasound for my first Femara + Menopur cycle, and I must say that I am a bit disappointed.

Maybe I just don’t know what to expect from this new doctor, and from this meds protocol… Maybe some of you can help?

This is what I found out:

  • My doctor doesn’t see me for ultrasounds.  No biggie, I guess
  • No blood work is necessary, apparently.
  • I have no follies over 9 on the left, and the biggest on the right is an 11.
  • My lining was 9.5.
  • My nurse didn’t know if I would have a follow-up ultrasound or not.

I’m not thrilled, but I’m trying to placate myself with the knowledge that it’s really only CD11, and in my previous Clomid and Femara cycles, I never had 18s till CD13 or 14.

Still though.  This seems dire.

Anyone else out there been on the Femara + Menopur + Trigger protocol who cares to chime in with their experience?  I just want to know if I should assume this isn’t working and prepare myself to move on quickly…
