And my news from the hospital! i went for another lot of tests on wednesday and got the results Thursday morning. Their good!!! my hcg level is down to 33! woo hoo! still not normal but a hell of alot closer!
The best part was, i actually got to speak to Professor Condous (hes the head honcho who had been handling my surgery and treatment, but i never got to speak to him! i always seemed to get stuck with his sidekicks! ). He said hes extremely happy with how my levels have come down so quickly ( i thought 5 weeks was kind of long, but apparently not) and he thinks they will be 0 next week. So im going for another test next week and if their 0, then no more tests!!!! i got the shock of my life, because all the other doctors, and all the research id done said it would be monthly tests for year! i asked him about 5 times if he was sure i didnt need to come back and he kept assuring me it wasnt necessary. I did consider getting a second opinion, but he is the head of the clinic and hes a professor - not just a doctor so he must know his stuff. So i have settled on believing him, and just going to my normal gp and asking him to do a blood test every few months, just for my peace of mind. I have a great gp, and i know he wont have a problem with this.
Oh and one other thing Prof Condous said was that i absolutely cannot get pregnant for 6 months, but after that, go for it........I nearly kissed him! He said theres no need to wait a year, 6 months is enough. From what i can work out ( i read part of a report over his shoulder) i only had some cells showing signs of being molar, so i guess because my levels have come down quickly hes happy that their all gone and my body now just needs the 6 months to recover before we try again. Gosh i was so happy tho. I feel like i had a life sentence cut in half! And no more feeling like a pin cushion! yay me!
