Kiss my assay...

Well, I got the results, delivered by the brand new doctor in the practice who had such a thick accent I could barely understand her. We'll call her Dr. Incomprehensible.

To sum up: No evidence of septum. Possible scar tissue in lower segment of uterus. Suggest hysteroscopy for diagnostic purposes, with the option to treat -- i.e., remove scarring, although this is the point where I had to ask her to repeat herself about three times because it sounded like she said it could be "liced"... um, what??? -- during the procedure.

Also - my FSH from cd3 was 11.9. "Not menopausal" per Dr. Incomprehensible. However, on all the sites I've looked up so far, whether a level above 10 is good or bad depends on the type of assay that was used by the lab, and if the good doctor told me that, I didn't understand it.

So... all that said, since I'm leaving this doctor anyway, how do I start?? Any advice from those who have gotten fed up with inept doctors in the past?

Do NOT tell them off until all your records are sent over and received. Otherwise they may be 'lost.'

I don't know what 'liced' means either. Sliced? And what is an assay?

Well shit. I am sorry you didn't get more clear answers. I agree with lorem. Ask for ALL of your records and be sure you have them all before you tell them to F-off.

Yeah, what they said. Funny how doctors can behave as though they are from a higher order of the species but behave like 12 year olds when you offend them.

I'm sorry you weren't able to learn much though:( Have you found a new OB yet? On FF they are always going on about how you need to interview new OBs until you find one you like. To me that would cost a load of money though...I don't know how it works for you though.

Hope you are feeling better with your cold:)
