After many months of constant pain, I scheduled an appointment to check everything out. The doctor first did an exam and then sent me down the hall for an ultrasound. During the procedure, the first technician had a hard time reading the images on the screen so she called in another tech (the same woman who found the ectopic pregnancy). The second technician told me that the first woman was having trouble understanding the images and she did not know what to tell me. She then explained that she had extensive experience, so she would assist with the procedure. The technicians never explained anything to me directly, but I did hear them use terms such as “adhesions” and “debris.” They were also debating over what were my ovaries and what were my fallopian tubes. Both technicians were confused by what they were seeing but they continued with the procedure and joked with me about being a difficult patient. After about 20 minutes, I was sent to wait for the doctor.

He called me in to his office and said my fallopian tubes looked very swollen, but my ovaries looked good. This was strange to me since my ectopic was only on the right side. He explained that he would like to do a diagnostic laparoscopy to actually see what the problem was.

My Mom went with me to my pre-op appointment. We were escorted to the doctor’s office where he confessed that he was not sure what was going on. He said that the sonogram images were “perplexing” and he had “never seen anything like this before.” He was unsure if something was wrong with my tubes or ovaries (even though he said my ovaries looked fine at my previous appointment). When I asked him what he thought caused the problem, he suggested that it was unrelated to the pregnancy and may have been there before. However, I pointed out that everything seemed normal several months ago; so, he looked back at his notes and agreed saying, “It says here that everything looked fine.” I asked him if it could be Pelvic Inflammatory Disease caused by the pregnancy loss, but he said that I would be near death if it was PID since the symptoms are very extreme. He cited a patient of his who had PID and he had to do a total hysterectomy to save her life. My Mom asked if the injections I received could cause any problems and he said, “It shouldn’t.” He explained that he could not be sure what the problem was until after the surgery.
