Well, I spoke to the doc and they rushed me in a few hours ago. My doc was aloof and told me “in the future, if you are asked if you are allergic to radiologic dye the answer is yes,” gave me a steroid prescription and walked out.

I am feeling a little better today, still too puffy for regular shoes and my ring, and I am wearing a flowy skirt for max comfort. My symptoms seem to be subsiding but I am still uncomfortable. Ugh.

All in all, if I am ever asked about my HSG experience? I won’t have nice things to say.

    Good. I’m so glad you’re okay. Sucks to be allergic to radiologic dye. Maybe they have a hypoallergenic form they can use if you ever have a CT scan or the like.

    I’m glad you’re starting to feel better, but sorry you had to get all puffy and yucky to find out you were allergic.

    to reply re. the loans:
    I am getting about 2k from the state of NC because I’m attending a private school (NC Legislative Tuition Grant), and then I’ll be taking about another 10k in loans. So, 12k for the year doesn’t really even begin to cover all of my expenses, but it does cover the bare minimum (car, electricity, water, cable/phone/internet, credit card payment, etc. H pays the mortgage and I pay everything else). I’ll have to do something else to make fun money.

    I did the FAFSA thing, and my school offered me the full 12k. I didn’t have to do anything special. That’s a shitload in loans, but worth it for my sanity.

    Eek! What a horrible experience! I’m glad you got an answer though and aren’t still wondering what’s going wrong while you puff up even more. Hope you feel lots better very soon.

After 5 IUIs, 2 IVFs, and the diagnosis of diminished ovarian reserve at the ripe old age of 29, I am now looking for information on embryo donation and adoption. I'm taking a break from blogging but will return when our path out of the world of IF becomes more clear.
