to use Lovenox.

AGAIN!!!!

 

 

My hunch was right about having to wait for the doctor to review my results for this panel in comparison to my NKa (a nurse called me and left me a voice mail last week that my results were normal).  I talked with the nurse on Tuesday and she said my APA results were in but they were waiting for the doctor’s review and she wouldn’t tell me if they were normal.  However, it was not exactly the answer to my prayers.

Out of 21 elements the APA tests for, I only had 1 that was a borderline result (not quite positive, but not normal) while all the other 20 were “normal.”  The nurse said my doctor would like to “add” baby aspirin to my chart as that is the common treatment for a borderline result.

This of course sent me off the deep end only for 2 reasons.

#1 I AM ALREADY ON A DAILY FUCKING BABY ASPIRIN YOU MOTHER EFFER-did you not read my file?????????

#2 I WAS TAKING A DAILY FUCKING BABY ASPIRIN FOR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY MISCARRIAGES, SO THIS IS CLEARLY NOT THE MISSING LINK!!!!!!!

Great.  Real fucking great.

As I’m sure you all remember, I met with a vascular specialist this month and discussed Lovenox, and she said-I think it can’t hurt so I will let Lizzie know that I approve a prescription for you if you would like one.  However, Lizzie isn’t running this cycle, and her apprehension to write an RX for Lovenox has been made abundantly clear-and now that I took my ball and went to play with another RE, there is no way in fucking hell Lizzie will write me a prescription for Lovenox for an IVF cycle and or pregnancy that she had no hand in.

So I told the nurse, I am already on baby aspirin (as I am sure you noted this from my file), and have miscarried  6 babies while on baby aspirin so I have gone through the pain staking process of meeting with a vascular specialist to confirm that I can take lovenox-and as a matter of fact, ALREADY HAVE A MONTHS WORTH OF THIS DRUG AND I WILL BE TAKING IT DURING MY 2 WEEK WAIT OF THIS IVF CYCLE.  And the nurses response was “Oh, well Dr. P. doesn’t typically prescribe Lovenox for results like these, you will have to meet with him to discuss this.”

Great.  Real fucking great.

“Umm you’re not hearing me.  Using Lovenox isn’t up for debate, I just need you to inform him I am going to be taking Lovenox and have him sign off on my prescription please.”

“I can’t do that, you will have to talk with him.”

Great.  Real Fucking Great.

Arrrrgggggggggggggggghhhhh!!  And yet another appointment I have to wait for, and AGAIN beg for Lovenox.

For the love of all things good-please make this stop.

Please?
