Unilateral Hydrosalpinx

Hi,
My husband and are young(27) and healthy. We have been TTC for 6 months, and after years of experiencing right lower abdomen discomfort, I figured I better go to the doctor and make sure that wasn't the reason we were having trouble. I realize it can take couples up to a year, however, since I'd been ignorning this disconfort, I thought I should get checked out. My PCP sent me for a transvaginal ulatrasound where I was diagnosed on Tuesday (1/10/12) with a left hydrosalpinx- doesn't explain my discomfort on the right, but at this point, i'm not even focused on that. I've of course been doing tons of research and it all sounds pretty gloomy- tube removal and IVF. I have no patience and would love some answers- the closest OB appointment I was able to get was Jan.23rd. I question if I should even go to an OB/GYN- I have a feeling they'll refer me to a fertility specialist or an RE. Has any one been diagnosed via ultrasound? I'm wodering whats next- an HSG or laproscopy? Any info would be appreciated!
