Post Procedure failure~👨🏼⚕️💉 Retained products of conception. Fast forward 2 weeks post d&c I was bleeding again, suspicious it could be a possible early period, we were still unsure why it had come and gone in a day, by that afternoon I had started to feel unwell following the bleed so we went to emergency, I had some bloods done and was monitored for a few hours, my HCG level was still raised but they said that is normal so soon after, with no real indication of what was going on I was sent home and had a follow up appointment booked at the hospital within the week, and was told to get my HCG levels checked every second day, This was super draining and I felt like a pin cushion (looked like one too)💉. A couple of days later the bleeding started again, it was like a gushes of blood and then it would stop, I wasn’t feeling 100% but put it down to stress, I was in and out of work at the time and could hardly deal with the General tasks of day to day life, i felt like my life was consumed with this loss, a never ending miscarriage. I felt like no one understood us, the pain and the frustration. On the Sunday afternoon I took myself to the Early pregnancy clinic at the hospital and told them the story, they took more bloods and decided to do another ultrasound, they found a cyst on my right ovary which was ‘supossibly’ causing the pain and the bleeding, I was tested for all sorts including checking for cancer markers, put on antibiotics just in case on infection & we left again.
At this point both of us were missing out on a lot of Work and felt like every time someone asked how we were it was never anything positive, it was embarrassing, we had just been thrown so many different curve balls every time we went to the hospital, I was constantly worried always anxious and barely knew how to hold myself together. ~ Continued in comments ✨🕊
