Not necessarily the type I’d really like, though, so don’t get that excited.
On Friday the Omaha nurses finally called with the results for my endometrial cultures. So now I’m getting way more personal than I ever thought I would on this blog, but if you remember from my write-up, Dr. H had concerns about my endometrial lining, although it was the ‘best picture of an inflammed uterus’ he’d ever seen (if I could set up a scanner I could scan the picture, but would that be too much? my endometrium on the blog?) and tail-end bleeding and occasional non-patterned mucus readings possibly indicated that there was some odd bacteria/infection in there causing the inflammation.
His plan was, despite the test results, to still start antibiotics but they called with the results and I did test positive for 2 different cultures , after which I was all “high five, honey! first positive test yet!” and now we’re on a grand total of 5 weeks of antibiotics that will hopefully check “inhospitable uterus” off our list of potential issues. My husband is possibly more medicinally adverse than I am, so he’s a bit vocal about his dislike of this. But then again I’m like “hey honey, who just had surgery again? that’s what I thought”. He is cooperating, I must mention. He’s just…vocal. Which is probably good because I was getting a little too used to that being my role :)
From what I have read so far online, which isn’t that much, these things basically look like yeast infections part deux? The most common way to get them is after birth, which definitely didn’t happen around here. Possibly sex-related but not necessarily. I have never had an abnormal pap so I do find it a bit odd, but I also realize that this is a new area of research for Dr. H so I guess I’ll see where it takes us.
