Attack of the Giant Cyst

Oh Internetz. Woe is me! (Added for some dramatic flair because you know that I like the dramz.)

I was up bright and early for my first wanding in months and even with the early rising I was full of piss and vinegar to take on the day! Day 3 date with the ultrasound wand? I can take it! And I did. Next up, blood work at the fertility clinic with Nurse Awesome. Then, a refresher course on injections and an overview of the protocol for this month.

Yeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaah! Let's DO this! (In my head, that totally sounded like Joe from "Family Guy.")

But in a classic tale of "don't count your chickens before they hatch," the wind in my sails were gently deflated by Nurse Awesome.

Nurse Awesome: "Oh no, you have a cyst. And a pretty big one. Crap."

Me: "Whatchu talkin' 'bout Nurse Awesome!?"

Nurse Awesome: "It's big, but the good thing is that it's clear. Let's see what your blood work tells us about your hormones and then we'll have to make decisions from there."

Me: "Okay." SAD FACE.

So now I wait. If my hormone levels come through for me, we may still be on. But if not, I will be benched until next month.

Not much more to say. In fact, this about sums it all up.

I hope everything gets better! What is a CLEAR Cyst? I didn't know there was a difference?

Okay, the sad trombone sound makes me wanna cry!!!

I am on the bench due to a nasty cyst. It's my first time and it SUUUUUCKS. I hope the bloodwork comes through for you though. How big is big? Mine is 4cm and hurts like hell at times.

Michelle said...

That sucksss.
I'm hoping the hormones come back and you can still proceed.

Katie said...

BOO cysts!!! I hope the blood work comes back normal so you can continue with this cycle. Let us know what happens!

..Soo.See.. said...

Hoping your bloodwork comes through for you! And yes, pls explain a clear cyst. Does that mean clear fluid instead of blood filled? I don't think I was ever told a difference w/ mine.

Andrea said...

Gosh you have such an awesome attitude! Hoping for good results! Boo for waiting!

I HATE CYSTS! Currently sitting with 5 (yes, 5!) after my last cycle. Warming the bench blows! Hope you have a friendly estrogen free cyst and are still good to go!

Andrea said...

Sending the positive vibe that you come off the bench :)

Crossed Fingers said...

Well hopefully your tests come back with good results and you're not benched for this cycle! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Waiting Lisa said...

Nothing can ever happen the easy way, huh? Hoping the blood test is good and you can move forward.

Fran said...

lowfatlady said...

Beautiful Mess said...

UHG no fair, DAMMIT! I'm throwing a hissy fit for you. I'm really good at em, too!

I'll be hoping and praying that you levels come back fine and ya'll can continue.
*HUGS*

That sucks. Here's hoping you don't get benched and you can continue with this cycle. GL

TeeJay said...

Man that sucks! I hated the few times they found me to have cysts and then I was benched for another freakin' month. I'm sorry about this. It's such a waiting game all the time. Maybe you will get lucky and even though it's big maybe it's not putting off too much E2 and you can get started. I'll keep everything crossed for you!

Cherish This Life! said...

I hope the blood work goes in your favor so this can be the month! Praying for you!

Allison said...

That totally sucketh.

I think you should take a squirt bottle to your next appointment. Then, if Nurse Awesome starts out saying "Oh no.." you should promptly squirt her in the face (a' la Dr. Evil).

And repeat until she says what you WANT to hear.

Ah...if only everything were so easy.

Marla.z said...

Damn that sad trombone! And that damn cyst, too! Sh*t!

PCOStory said...

So sorry to hear about the cyst. We also are hoping and praying for good bloodwork for you so you can cycle!

Jaymee said...

grrr, to the cyst!! hope everything comes back good and you can continue on your way.

The (Type A) Nightmare said...

Okay. I'm totally choosing to remain optimistic. I think it'll be fine... and you're proceed as planned. Fingers crossed. Can't wait to hear!

jenicini said...

Blasted cyst! Hope you hear back soon.

Tiffany said...

Cysts suck. Hopefully it's not producing any hormones. F*#% you cyst!

Heather said...

GO AWAY CYST!

(Feel free to laugh at me. I kept hitting play and it wasn't doing anything then I realized I had my speakers turned off - DOH!)

Holly said...

hoping bloodwork comes back good and you can still go forward this cycle! My dr thought he saw a cyst on Wed and I about died. *hugs*

Logical Libby said...

That TOTALLY sucks. It happened to me more times than I care to remember. One time they told me I shouldn't lift anything or have sex because the cyst was so big. I would have been proud, if I wasn't so pissed.

Kristin said...

Geez, I hope those hormone levels behave themselves.

zengirl said...

That sucks BIG TIME! I think it's time we bring the fuss closet out again! Let's hope the cysts goes away soon and your hormones come through for you! ((HUGS))

TwoDogMama said...

That sucks! I hope it goes away and you can continue on without any problems. Sending you good thoughts!

Lisa said...

Those cysts are the worst. I've had one the size of lemon hanging out in my left ovary for 2 months now!

callmemama said...

Cysts are the DEVIL.
I hope your hormones cooperate!

Jenny said...

Boo! Hiss! Silly little cyst! (hey that sort of rhymed!)

Hopefully everything goes smoothly.

P.S. love the reference to Family Guy. I freakin' love that show!

lindsey said...

Booo!!! How freaking stupid is that!? At least you don't have to "give it" for a month lol

Mad Hatter said...

I'm so sorry, FerChi...I am hoping beyond hope that all is well with your hormones and they can get beyond this!
Love,
Maddy

IF Optimist, then... said...

Gah! I have been delayed by cysts in the past and even had to get one aspirated to start my cycle. WE HATES THEM PRECIOUS!

Mrs. Gamgee said...

(Ok, IfOptimist's comment totally rocks!)

Gah! after all this waiting... a cyst! *shaking a fist at the sky on your behalf*
