Survived the HSG. . .barely!

Well I went for the HSG on Tuesday at 11am. Honestly the test was pretty tame. Mildly uncomfortable, but not too bad. Had some bleeding afterward. The test was normal, uterus looked good and both tubes are open, Yippee!

I left the test and went up to work, and about three hours later I started feeling alot of pressure and pain in my lower abdominal area. The pain continued to to get worse and to rise upward. I started feeling nauseous and light headed. I called m husband and asked him to come get me.

I called the Dr's office but they were already closed. The pain continued to get worse. Mind you, this was NOT cramping it was pain. It felt like my whole torso had been bruised, it was extremely painful just to move. My stomach looked really bloated and swollen.

After getting home, I call the Dr's emergency line and spoke to the on call Dr and he said it sounded like I was having an allergic reaction to the dye and that I should go to the emergency room. So we went to the ER and we were there until 4:30 am Wednesday morning. They did tons of tests and xrays and gave me some wonderful pain meds. And decided that is was probably a reaction to the dye and sent me home.

That whole next day though I was completely out of it, probably from the meds, and I felt really sore, like I had worked out too much or something. It was really strange...

To top it off my day 3 FSH still did not come back normal, FSH was 5.5 and estradiol was 108. It is definitely better than last month but still not normal. So I have an appointment to discuss the results with the RE on Wednesday so I will let you all know what the outcome is.

Well I am off to clean my house as my In-laws are coming to visit and will be staying for the week! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
