Those 5 follicles? Still there. I was so frustrated at today’s monitoring that I nearly cried. Can’t my body do ANYTHING right?
But the good news is that my E2, which was 290 last week, had a significant drop this week. It’s down to 89. The NP says that, with a drop like that, the follicles should soon start shrinking. So, another week of Lupron at 20 IU.
One interesting item of note came up while I was expressing my frustration. The NP said something like, “I don’t know what it is with the Lupron lately…” and then told me that she actually called the drug company – the one that does the generic Leuprolide – and asked if they had a bad batch or if there was a recall, because she’s been noticing lately that a lot of women in their practice aren’t being suppressed recently. They said no, but it does seem odd, no? For the past couple of days, I’ve been on a new vial from a different pharmacy, so who knows. Maybe that will make a difference. All I know is I’m glad to be finally going in the right direction.
