So, I had my US this AM to help ease my fears about the endometrioma being back and bigger than ever. Well, there is no visible mass!!! Say what?!? Guess the draining helped!
However (since I know we all love caveats), I do have a bit of fluid hanging out around it. What does that mean? I haven't the foggiest. The clinic staff doesn't seem terribly concerned about it being there (perhaps this is normal post IVF?), so, I'll try not to be. I know that endometriosis can cause such ascites as well, so, might be "normal" for me. I'm supposed to monitor my pain and symptoms and let them know if anything gets worse.
My RE isn't in until next week. Maybe she can provide more insight. Until then, I will celebrate the magically "shrinking" (ie, drained) endometrioma and hope it has a long delayed return!
Tomorrow I have an apt with the Derm in the seemingly never-ending battle with that pesky incision. This last course of prednisone helped, but, its back a with a scab (it was closed) and itchy inflamed. Little bastard! Go AWAY! I have one model healing SCAR that the others need to learn a thing or two from!
