{More surgery....}

I feel like it's been fooorrreevverr since I've updated about us. Here and Here are the last two posts if you missed it. 

Here we are two doctors later getting ready to face surgery again. When we went to see Dr. Sommers a couple months ago (read above) he found what he thought was a mass and was very worried about Christopher. $800 and a few tests later we found out that it was actually another very large Varicocele. This was a result of his first surgery. Sometimes during Varicocelectomy's the blood flow that they cut off, takes another path and that is exactly what happened to Christopher. This is also why we saw worse results after his Varicocelectomy. After finding out all this information Dr. Sommers referred us to Vascular doctor to get a second opinion on surgery to remove the mass (aka very large Varicocele).

Arriving at Dr. Thomas Davis's office, Chris and I felt very calm and relaxed. This is something that we had not felt since starting this crazy ride. Dr. Davis explained all the X-Rays and what he thought a Vericocele Embolization could do for us. He seems very confident that this can increase our numbers by at least 50%. What we liked about him is his confidence. All the other doctors have told us is "maybe" but Dr. Davis said he had seen this 1000 times.

So off to Riverside Hospital we go tomorrow morning. Please keep Christopher in your thoughts, I know we are both a little nervous about ANOTHER surgery and getting our hopes up.

Thank you all for the continued support and love through this whole process. We couldn't keep going without it.

I don't know if you've been watching, but Bravo's Pregnant in Heels star, Rosie Pope, talks about and deals with IFV on the show. I thought about you and ur blog when it was mentioned.

I hope everything with Chris' surgery goes well.
Much love!
