Okay so part one is over and we are well and truly back into this.
The trial transfer went pretty well, K’s cervix was sitting high so he had to use a clip to hold it in place, but once he did that the catheter was straight in which was fantastic. So the operation really was a success, no more kinks and blockages – just a regular old, straight forward cervix now if there ever is such a thing!
There was a bit of stress when we first got there, we had to wait for an hour before we got taken through which was annoying, and then K wasn’t given the sedatives like she’d been told on the phone. The nurse had said she’d get a pill when we got there, and then have an iv with something else so she’d be lightly sedated. But that didn’t happen, so when we got taken through to theatre and the doc asked if she could handle it without anything naturally she got a bit upset. Eventually they did give her sedatives and we were sent back to wait another half hour for them to work, apparently he had put in the notes that she may need sedation, not definitely, but after all the bad experiences and especially after last time it’s not suprising at all that she freaked out a bit – I mean it was hard enough for her to go into it knowing she’d have some sedation but then to have that changed at the last minute and think she wouldn’t get any? Luckily it was all sorted fairly quickly and it went smoothly from there.
He doesn’t think she’ll need any sedation or anaesthetic for the real transfer but said it was up to us, we’ve opted for at least the sedation at this point. Even though the trial went well, it’s still so hard for K to even go back in that room – I don’t think it would be good for her to be so stressed and anxious at that point, shooting all sorts of hormones and chemicals around her body. He’s also made a note to use the clip straight away due to her cervix position which will hopefully make thing go smoothly but also no doubt add to K’s stress. And as she said, she’s got over wanting to do this part with as little drugs/intervention as possible – now it’s just about the end result.
Next step is getting the serious drugs and the plan!
