All day yesterday I was hurting in my lower abdominal and pelic area. As the day went on, it got worse. So about 5pm my husband, Myra nd I packed up and left. We sat in that waiting room 5 HOURS before I was called back. I had a share a room with a older couple, thats how packed the trama area was!
After waiting for the couple to leave, that's when everything started. I had a pelvic exam- and low and behold, they couldn't find my IUD strings!! My cervix was red- and the doctor just thought it was a bladder infection-
My bloodwork all came back negative, no bladder infection- so he said to call this morning to schedule an U/S to make sure the IUD was still in place and to see where it was- if it was still there.
I got a call back from my doctor this morning- like 3 times. He wants a X-ray done to make sure it wasn't dislogged or if its still in my abdomin, that it was still in my uterus and not harming my internal organs outside the uterus.
So now I'm just completely freaked out- My moms side of the family (My Grandmother, 2 Aunts and my Mom) all have hysterectomies. So I'm not sure if this whats happening...
If the IUD is embedded into my uterus, I need it surgically removed or if its at a place where they can get it (if its even there), I'll need forceps.
Yesterday was a great day that just turned bad for me. Its so scary!! I just hope its there, the strings are just up in my uterus and I'll walk out without anyhing needing to get done.
My X-ray is at 2:45pm EST and U/S at 3:30pm...I'll update when I get home
