MRI=All Good

Dr. Val herself called me on Tuesday to let me know that my MRI was all good. I was 99.9% sure that it would be. I mentioned when I was younger that I had precocious puberty which is caused by a lesion or tumor on your prolactin gland or is unexplained. Mine was unexplained so I was fairly certain that a lesion/tumor hadn't magically grown on my gland since 7th grade when I last had it checked out and I was right.

So where do we go from here? Well, I have to a fasting prolactin blood test. Luckily, it'll probably be at 8am and I just can't eat anything after midnight so that shouldn't be too bad. I'm just waiting for Dr. Val's office to call me back and let me know when that will be. DH and I also will get the good 'ole regular blood work done plus I have to do something with chicken pox because I've never had them. I had the vaccine in 8th grade but I'm not for sure how long it's good for so Dr. Val told me to look into that before we move forward.

I also scheduled our IVF orientation for the end of August, I'm starting a list of questions...Dr. Val is probably going to hate me after the orientation and I ask so many questions! So that's all I have to report at this time but its a relief to know I'm not walking around with a tumor on in my head!

Yay, that's great news!
Thanks for your sweet comment -- I'm glad if I can give back (or forward) some of the encouragement and support I get in this community.

Wonderful news! I went to all the doctors with files, folders, Xrays from HSG and a list of questions a mile long. I think they love patients like us, so organized ;)
Can't wait til your next appointment.

I liked your article. Did you know there is a treatment for early childhood puberty? Here is information if anyone needs it I hope it is helpful.
