Well today I went to the hospital to have my "dye test" done. It's actually called a Hysterosalpingogram or HSG for short. I was prepared for it to be incredibly painful and to have lots of pain afterwards. I won't lie....the actual procedure was pretty darned uncomfortable. I was close to tears when it was over. However, once I have gotten home, I feel pretty good - intermittent cramping but pretty tolerable
Apparently I had extra cramping because the radiologist couldn't get the catheter in as far as he'd like to....oh well, I survived.
When it was done, I sat up and the radiologist showed me the images. My first thought, which of course came spilling out of my mouth, was, "Wow, don't get to see pictures of yourself like that very often." The radiologist was really awesome and started joking with me about it. He says, "If you'd like we can print them out for you!" I said, "Certainly, I'd like to hang them in the bedroom." Ha!
Luckily, the result of the HSG test was everything I was hoping for. The images showed that everything looked great and nothing was blocked....everything looks to be just the way it should be. I was quite happy!
So, apparently the results from Shooter's test should be sitting at my doctor's office right now. I have a call in to see if they'll let me know what it says.
Well....the adventure continues.....
