First let me say I'm SO thankful we go what we needed from this biopsy. I was completely shocked. I always expect the worst because honestly, that's about all we've ever gotten. :( They said we definitely have plenty for 1 round of IVF and depending on how many eggs they get from me and how many fertilize we may get 3 rounds out of his biopsy. WOOHOO!!!
Ok now the hard part. My poor husband has been through SO much pain. They had him in recovery about an hour and a half and I finally asked how he was doing. A nurse rang the phone up front to talk to me. They said he was in a lot of pain and was trying to get it under control. About 15 min later I was able to go back and see him. They had already given him a pain shot but it wasn't working so they were trying to get some crackers and sprite in him so he could take pain meds. So got he meds in him and it was barely taking the edge off so we could come home. A 2 hours drive mind you. He said it felt like someone kicked him in the testicles and had god awful constant pain up in his lower stomach and down into the inside of his thigh. Thankfully they only had to biopsy his right testicle. So anyways, we get home and he's hurting but ok. He was walking some (looked like a penguin poor thing) and the next day he was still trying to walk but hurting more and by the 3rd day his "fella's" were the size of an orange and he couldn't walk. We were icing, he was taking pains meds and his antibiotics. On day 4 it was still swollen but thankfully it hadn't gotten bigger. She said that he probably had a hematoma and to make sure he doesn't run a fever over 100 degrees, no infection or oozing or bleeding. It's been rough but here we are on day 5 after surgery and he's on the couch, the swelling has went down some but better. He had a shower yesterday yayy lol. Hoping that it's better and better every day from here on out. I've emailed the fertility clinic because I was specifics lol. I want to know about how many they got, I want to know the percentage of morphology and motility.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. We are one HUGE step closer to having our miracle!!! :D
