Kemi @mercy dear, thanks for the very detailed post. First of all, let’s thank God for a great hormonal assay . To God be the glory hun. And I’m really tripping about the GNLD people oh! Is that how they diagnose people???
As for your husband, I’m glad the meds worked so well after only a month, and by GOD’s grace, the results will be even better after he takes it for a few more months. It is over to God now.
I am believing and trusting God with you, for the tubes hun. I don’t know why they are making such a ceremony out of it, but God willing, when you go next week, it will be only good news!
2018 is your year dear. Claim it!December 19, 2017 at 4:42 pm #43332
Amen oh! Kemi @mercy, this detailed post sheds more light on your TTC journey so far and mehn, thank God that you could have some tests done, instead of having to rely on those GNLD folks. That their machine is witchcraft oh.
If I were you too, I would be angry that the doctor opened me up for a single fibroid when a laparoscopy could have done the job. Anyways, 27th is almost here and you can ask that question.
Fingers crossed that your husband’s result would improve before you have to go in to see the doctor again in February.
Their secrecy is not here at all. Wishing you all the best namesake and take good care of yourself. :hugsDecember 19, 2017 at 6:54 pm #43335December 19, 2017 at 7:05 pm #43336
@oluwakemi and Nicole. Thanks so much for the time and effort spent in replying my posts. Amen to all the prayers. I feel so good tonight, it’s been long I felt this way. May God continue to bless you great mothers of nations.
When the GNLD people made their diagnoses and recommended drugs worth of 40k, when I told the doctor he said they were diabolic. Thank God I didn’t fall prey to all that rubbish. Where is the money to waste?December 20, 2017 at 2:02 am #43342
I feel you are on the right path to having a baby soon. Don’t be unhappy that Laparoscopy wasn’t done. There are indications for it and in your case, I don’t think you met the criteria. Go for your next appointment and let’s hear what the doctor says dear. I think you’ll be fine abs and I see you having your baby in 2018.December 20, 2017 at 7:06 am #43344December 20, 2017 at 8:04 am #43356January 23, 2018 at 8:41 am #44471
Hello ladies! Happy New Year. I have decided to seek a second opinion as suggested, I please have a few questions and I’ll be really glad to receive responses and advice . Has anybody removed fibroids and adhesions at the same time? If yes, what technique was used and which hospital(s)? I know @nicole mentioned Georges for the adhesions but not sure about the fibroid. Lastly, what is the price range of the procedure? Looking forward to reading your responses. Thank you!January 23, 2018 at 9:05 am #44474
Happy new year Geraldine @geraldine. I must say that it is really nice to have you here. So glad to hear you are moving forward already.
I haven’t heard of anyone doing both at the same time and you may be advised to remove fibroids and adhesions in separate procedures but talk to the doctor first. Depending on the size and location of the fibroids, a laparoscopic procedure may be used. Same also for the adhesions. It is a minimally invasive procedure, which means less scarring later.
Nicole @nicole mentioned Georges for adhesion but that’s not all, Dr Iketubosin is quite good in the treatment of fibroids too and I would personally recommend him in this instance. He was the one who did Nicole’s myomectomy several years back.
Have you sought a second opinion?January 23, 2018 at 9:19 am #44476
@oluwakemine I am trying to decide between Georges and South shore for a second opinion and treatment. You will remember from my earlier posts that I attempted a myomectomy which was unsuccessful cos of the adhesion. I wouldn’t want to go under the knife more than once again because of the healing time. I am really confused and just need some directionJanuary 23, 2018 at 9:27 am #44477
I understand your concerns Geraldine @geraldine, however, doing both at the same time may be challenging and the doctors at the two clinics you have shown interest in are quite good in this area and either one should be able to provide the direction you seek.
However, I’d still pick Georges, if I were in your shoes. The doctor will always treat with your future fertility at the back of his mind. Just my thoughts. Let’s see what the other ladies think.January 24, 2018 at 11:37 am #44509
Geraldine @geraldine dear, so great to hear from you again
It depends on what method you’re opting for and the size of the fibroids hun. Both Dr. Iketubosin of Georges and Dr. Alabi of South Shore are very good, and would both receive recommendations from me.
However, if your fibroids are small enough to be removed vaginally/laparoscopically, there is a chance the adhesions can be cleared at the same time. I know a friend of mine did something similar with Dr. Alabi. What size are the fibroids?January 24, 2018 at 11:59 am #44514January 24, 2018 at 3:12 pm #44518
Dr Iketubosin and Dr Alabi are very good, tho expensive.
Yours sounds a bit complicated dear and doctor might even need doctors in other specialties to work together. My dear, adhesions are not really easy to remove.
I’ll personally suggest Luth esp targeting the professors cos a multidisciplinary approach is better for your case. Luth is also cheaper.January 24, 2018 at 4:25 pm #44527
@fruityfruity, I don’t think Luth have the facilities for removing adhesion, do you know anyone who has successful done it there? Just the thought of a government owned hospital scares the living daylight out of me lol. If the two procedures can’t be done at once, then I’ll take my chances doing one at a time.
