Everyone should have a doctor friend like Dr. Val. Dr. Val just finished her residency in Ob/Gyn in Connecticut and she is now embarking on her own private practice down South. A mutual friend gave me her number so I could talk to her about the pros and cons of surgery. When I called she was very generous and patient. She let me know that there is still plenty of hope and plenty of time for me and my egg drop drama.
Thanks, Dr. Val!
Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I have elected to follow my RE’s advice and have the myomectomy.
Now if I could only stop researching everything that could go wrong during surgery, how the surgery could affect my chances of getting pregnant, and how the surgery may result in a hysterectomy, I think I would be able to come to terms with my decision and stop second guessing myself.
Patience is a virtue!
