In 2009 I had a surgery to remove a sinus like cavity from my tailbone. In 2010 and 2012 I had the exact same surgery because for some reason I was unable to heal. Now, it’s kind of disgusting so I am not going to go into any detail here, but it is a painful recovery and when I was told by my dermatologist that I would need to go back and have a fourth surgery I was fed up and frustrated. I put all baby plans on hold until I saw a surgeon – a new surgeon, a new hospital, a fresh start.
I saw a wonderful Dr yesterday and he told me he wanted to observe me for a few months before deciding on a game plan because he doesn’t know me, my history or my past surgery successes and failures. I asked him about my plans to have a child and he told me to go for it! Keep trying to get pregnant, that this issue is really small in the realm of medical problems and if I get pregnant I can wait till after the baby is born to have this procedure done and it won’t be affected by carrying a child (or two??).
This, unknowingly to me, was exactly what I wanted to hear. I hated putting off getting pregnant (or at least trying) because I want this. I deserve this. So I am going to ignore the little stab of discomfort on my rear and move on. I see my fertility specialist on February 11th (my fathers birthday) and I am hoping she has a new pregnancy game plan for me because clearly going natural IUI isn’t working!
I’ll keep ya posted!
