The Weighty Wait

I am waiting to hear back from my Doctor. It is nearly a fortnight since I saw him. He was going to schedule my surgery dates & ring me. I think I am going to have to call his office & ask if perhaps he's forgotten me?

Surely he lies awake at night thinking about my blocked tubes? Just like I do?
I can picture him...laying in bed, it's waaay after midnight. He's staring at the ceiling. His wife is awakened by the bedside lamp and sleepily props up onto one elbow. She whispers to him "A penny for your thoughts" and he would answer...."Oh, I am just thinking about Mrs Negative's completely blocked fallopian tubes and polyp. Gosh, I sure hope those ovaries are not affected. So sorry to wake you you want me to sleep in the spare room?" "Oh No!" the good wife would say "Let's talk about those tubes together! A problem shared is a problem halved, silly! Now, completely blocked you say?"

Ahhh....apparently this is not the situation.
Anyway, I will give the busy doctor a few more days to contact me before I hunt him down.

Give him a call, my mother always says "the squeaky wheel gets the grease".

Hi Mrs Negative,

I used to have a blocked tube but my doc took it out together with my ovary. It's been three months since the operation, and I had completed one natural cycle and two more FET's, it didn't seem to make any difference. So I don't even know if my blocked tubes are the reason behind my 7 IVF failures.'s a bitch. I sympathise with you and I hope to fight with you together so we can have our dreams realised.

Don't give him any more time! Call him today! And say hi to his good wife for me.

I too have a mysterious blocked tube. I'm sure THAT'S what's been keeping him awake at night and failing to focus on yours. Apologies. But as well as his wife, maybe we can get his kids to lie awake wondering too. Actually between us maybe we can give them all a tube apiece.
