It's now four days past egg retrieval, and I am in massive discomfort.
Usually the pain gets a little better each day - this time, I'd say it's still just as uncomfortable as yesterday, or the day before. I'm bloated, I am really sensitive and tender around my pelvic region, it still hurts using the bathroom, and sometimes the pain radiates around to my sides/back. I've also lost a lot of my appetite, which then leaves me feeling nauseas.
I've done all the usual things just in case, so loads of protein snacks, gatorade & hydrolyte.
If it's OHSS, it's only a mild case.. which makes me grateful that I've never had the full-blown culprit, because I can only imagine how excruciating that must be.
The clinic has me popping in at 11am today to check me out - but I've had no temperatures, which is what they were most concerned about. I guess we'll see what they say.
Update: So this morning's scan showed super enlarged ovaries with still-large follicles, and that I have been bleeding into my ovaries from the egg retrieval. I also have some free fluid, but not enough to concern them with a drain - but it accounts for the discomfort and pressure. The verdict is to just keep on doing what I'm doing with pain medication and resting, and to go to the ER if the bloating/pain gets worse instead of better. They also took some bloods & urine to check for any other infections, but won't know results for a little while. At least I know there was definitely something not right, as I was worried I was being a hypochondriac or a wimp. Resting it is!
