What sucks worse than Infertility?

Cancer, that's what.

I went to the endo today. I was told that the nodules on my thyroid are "suspicious" and that I need to have a biopsy. My chances of having thyroid cancer are 10-15%.

My thyroid biopsy is scheduled for March 15th. I was told I would get the results there at the appointment.

My TSH levels are in the right place- 3.07. My Synthroid dose was increased so that number will continue to drop. That means if the biopsy comes back negative- we can move forward with IVF. If not- well then I have cancer and need to deal with that before attempting to go through an IVF cycle.

I can't even believe I just typed that. I might have cancer.

  5. I really need you to catch a break, Kathy! Like I told you, just think - someday you'll be telling your little one how much mommy (and daddy) had to go through to bring them into this world, and it will all be worth all the waiting and worrying. Huge hugs and lots of prayers headed your way this week!
