Hi All I finally seem to be moving in the right direction just for the referral. Two months and I am finally getting it. They have made is difficult here in Germany. I finally found a LTC who has been very helpful. I have tons of questions since I would have to do this at walter reed. If anyone could email so I could ask what I need to know it would be so helpful. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
Thanks for all the help. The LTC working with me had the packet emailed to him and he emailed it to my PCM who then handed it to me on Friday. We have our first appoitnment on Tuesday to order all the blood work. I am just a bit concerned about the Semen Analysis here our clinic is so small. I will have to ask about that. Can anyone please tell me what time of tubal ligation they originally had. I had my TR in Germany and my report was in German. I am currently having it translated. Just wanted to hear what kind of procedures anyone else has had. Thanks
I ALSO IM TRYING TO GET A TR I HAD MY APPT. LAST MONTH WITH MY PCP I HAVE AN APPT. WITH OB ON 11-14 FOR AN ULTRASOUND AND TALK TO THE DR. AND I GUESS TO SCHEDULE AN APPT FOR THE SURGERY DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS OR HOW SOON AFTER YOURS DID YOU GET PREGNANT I JUST HAVE ALOT OF QUESTIONS
Just had my first appointment with my doctor at Travis.Love her.Told me everything I needed to know.Gave five tubes of blood and need to give more.I am hoping the time frame will be December or early January.
WELL EVERYTHING IS ALMOST GREAT I HAVE MY SURGERY SCHEDULED FOR NOV 7TH AND ONLY STARTED THIS ENTIRE PROCESS ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO ONLY 1 TUBE OF BLOOD HOWEVER I RESEARCHED AND READ EVERYONES BLOGS SO I KNEW WHAT I NEEDED ANY QUESTIONS EMAIL ME AND MAYBE I CAN HELP
hi ya'll! I was wondering if anyone has had any success at Lejeune? Do they do TR there? I had my TL done there about 3 years ago...and my husband and I feel it never should have been done...ethically we think the DR shouldn't have allowed it...I was suffering from post partum depression at the time...my husband was gone and I was home with three kids by myself....ages 5 and under...I wonder if this info will help in getting tricare to cover it? Or is it just wishful thinking on our part? Thanks everyone for any help you can provide!
I am so happy to announce that I got my positive pregnancy test yesterday. I got my TR done in july and this is our 3rd month of trying. I also only had one tube reattached so this was definately a blessing. Good luck to you all!
Congratulations! This thread has really helped me. This is something my DF and I have discussed numerous times. I researched and it was going to cost about $10,000.00 to have it done in Kentucky. Right now, we have 2 girls from my previous marriage, he had a daughter that passed away (SIDS) 2 years ago. Weighing the pros and cons of this procedure has just been lightened. And again Congratulations Tara
Well I just did my ten day test this morning.This afternoon I did my HSG.Oh my didnt like that at all.Went ten hours today with out eating.Had little oatmeal this morning for my two clock HSG appointment.Wasnt sure I was going to get it done.The nrse came out five minutes to my appointment to tell me the machine just broke.Thank goodness they sent me to another office that could get me in.Just need one more test and that is my husbands now
Hello all, I have been reading your post and thought that someone would possible have anytype of advice for me. I am station in quantico, but I have been dealing with walter reed in reference to having my TR done. The process (ie paperwork, labs,appt,etc...)started back in June 08 everything was completed by mid Aug. It is now going on Nov. an it seems that every phone call I get from walter reed is attached to jumping through hoops or a reason why the surgery date is being postponed. I spend more time talking to Mrs. Logan the receptionest than I do talking to a Dr. It also seems as if none of the Dr.'s comunicate with each other so I find that I am having to repeat myself every phone call. I just dont know what to do. I want to throw up my hands and say screw it and wait till our next duty station in June 09 but yet I have made it this far. i know and understand that it takes time to get a surgery date however how do you stay sain till then. Its almost as if when talking to the Dr.'s they give you a false since of hope by saying "after this your done and we will call you with a surgery date with 72 hours" then you get the phone call 2 weeks later and its another something else to do. So my question is how do you keep your husband positive about the whole process when your starting to loose hope yourself?
Tara, I am sooooooo excited for you YAY.. Congratulations.. Looks like that right tube did good last ovulation
We haven't really tried, at least not on ovulation date, the closest we came was this past ovulation and that was 3 days before and 1 day after. I'm kind of torn with wanting to wait but wanting to see if it actually worked. I'm supposed to have my AF today but I don't have signs of it or pregnancy so who knows.. But that's so awesome for you.. Congratulations again!
Does anyone know how i go about changing my screen name from 15379781 to my name? I can't seem to find a place to do that?
Kianna, I'm not sure what your particular circumstances are. I know that I went through Walter Reed and encountered no problems at all. I'm sorry that you are having so many difficulties. What exactly are they saying that you need? I talked to Ms Logan frequently as well but I never felt that I was getting the run around. they sent me my packet and I did everything required of me and before I knew it my surgery was scheduled. The day before surgery they did a few extra tests and blood work but my surgery was already scheduled.. Did you include everything requested in the packet? What is Ms. Logan informing you exactly?
Wow I am having the same problems at Walter Reed. You are lucky you even get any phone call from Mrs. Logan I have left her messages and emailed her and nothing. I have all my tests done, but I can't seem to get a hold of her at all. I thought I was the only one. I finally called another hospital that does them. I am like you waiting to return from overseas to start the process it has been very annoying doing it from Germany especiallyw hen you don't get a call back
I got a positive pregnancy test today! woohoo.. We weren't even trying either,just not really preventing it either. This was cycle 2 for me! had my TR August 29th.. I'm excited and worried.. I just hope it's not tubal pregnancy as i know it's a high possibility.. I'll let you all know, I have an appointment Wednesday! Walter Reed did a good job for me and Tara Baby luck to everyone...
Oh my gosh i'm getting so frustrated. So I'm worried about tubal pregnancy because I know that I'm higher risk because of the surgery. I go to the dr on base and they do a blood HCG and confirm that I'm pregnant however, they will not even refer me to an OBYN because with tubal reversal the operating facility "walter reed" has to be the ones to determine that it is not a tubal pregnancy before they will see me anywhere else.. that's just terrific considering Walter Reed is over 4 hours away from me...
I cannot believe that. I am lucky enough that I am going to an off post doctor. My husband is being medically discharged this month so we moved back home. What was the level of HCG that does sort of signal if its ectopic. Mine was low at first but we did another this week and its excellerating nicely. Im getting an ultrasound monday. Im not too worried. I am having no pain. It really shocks me that they would let you go untreated like that.
What ended up happening is Walter Reed called the base clinic directly. They were trying to make me the middle man and were asking for rank and names of my doctors here.. I was like look why don't you all talk directly, Cause they wouldn't even see me for my follow up care from surgery, I did my post op over the phone with Walter Reed. Anyway, they didn't do the quantitative HCG, they just did the HCG to determine pregnancy "my 3 positive home pregnancy tests weren't good enough" ha.. Anyway, NOW the base clinic is testing my HCG levels in 3 day intervals and then I get an early sonogram in 1 1/2 weeks. I am 4 weeks 6 days and they want me at 6 weeks before sonogram. I'm not having any problems or pain or anything. I guess i'm just a worry wort cause I know it's more of a risk this time around Hope all is going well for you..
