Even though the Dr told me the blood test results would take 10 days, I cheekily thought I would call today and see if they were back…
I spoke to one lady who told me “everything is normal, thanks,bye” and the call ended. Something didn’t sit right with me so I called back a short while later and spoke to another lady who actually allowed me to get a word in. She was very honest and told me that she couldn’t read the results properly and that she would get a Dr to call back.
Less than 20 minutes later Dr Hin called and we discussed each test result carefully, he was very good.
My thyroid is low again, but that is to be expected after the pharmacy mucked up my prescription, he isn’t overly concerned and has upped my meds slightly to 150 mcg of thyroxine daily. He thinks we can fit another blood test and subsequent result sheet in before my specialist appointment on the 22.06.11 – All good.
He asked if I had a laproscopy before, I told him 2 and an ultrasound in 2004, he said that my blood work showed all the indicators for endometriosis and PCOS, not a great surprise as the specialist some time ago suggested PCOS, however Dr Hin was concerned as my glucose levels “are abnormal” – he didn’t elaborate at all and I didn’t think to ask.
Whatever folate is – my levels are very low and he’s suggested between now and 22.06.11 I start introducing things like spinach, egg yolks, sunflower seeds and curly kale into my diet, they’ll monitor this as well
Part of the blood test involved testing my FSH and LH to see how my ovaries are functioning – He confirmed that I am NOT ovulating at the moment and the level of FSH and LH was higher than normal. Not good news, but it could have been worse.
I double checked with him that I definitely wasn’t going through the menopause and he reassured me. Good times.
So in a nutshell, not the menopause, but still fertility problems.
I’m glad that we don’t have to start trying for a baby straight away, but we have to be prepared for a bit of difficulties along the way.
The gynaecologist will talk me through the steps in more detail no doubt.
So, just the Lichen Sclerosus, small vagina, PCOS, Endometriosis, my thyroid problems, the glucose issue and low Pop-Eye levels to sort then … No pressure!
Roll on the 22.06.11!!!
