Dr. B called yesterday afternoon, right before I had to run out the door, so I didn't get to tell you about it until now. I do believe I've mentioned before that Dr. B is the bestest doctor in the whole world. Well, he still is. We talked for probably close to 20 minutes, and the verdict is that as long as TSH comes back to normal range, we can try. And if we do get pregnant, he will monitor my condition closely, and go from there. We talked about both possibilities-- what if I go hyper while pregnant? what if hypo? We have a plan for both. Nice to know that, to feel included in the discussion, to feel confident with those plans.
Speaking of which, he wants me to keep my appointment with Dr.BigShot. He says it can't hurt, and since they are pretty much the center of thyroid universe over there, it may help. But Dr, I said, he couldn't be bothered to read the tests. So Dr. B said that he gets the frustration, that he sometimes has trouble getting a doctor's attention too when it has to do with his family, but, he said, you're tough, you can take them. I had to laugh at that. So I am going to keep the appointment, but I don't have to stop trying in the meantime. Would've been nice to have this plan in place a week ago, but I'll take now.
I am going to see my GP today. She has an EKG machine right in her office, so I am fairly sure she is going to do one of those, as well as take a couple of blood tests. Dr. B wants her to draw for anti-thyroid antibodies as well, and I am pretty sure that one is going to come back positive.
So that's all for now. I will update when I hear the results of today's tests.
