When I set up this appointment, they had sent me forms to fill out and send back. They also said I could send medical records for the RE to review. I sent the forms, along with medical records that I have from my first RE (till my 1st IVF). The rest of the records are with my current clinic.
I asked my clinic to send my papers to CCRM directly, because if they released them to me, they would charge 25 cents per page, and knowing the size of my file, that could cost me 100's! They confirmed to me that they sent everything out on the 12th.
Last week I asked a nurse from the new clinic if they had got both packets (and I categorically mentioned that there should be 2 packets, one from me and one from the clinic) and she said Oh yes, everything is here. (The "big fat file" lady)
Yesterday the RE was talking about seemingly "older" information more than he was talking about things in the last 3 years. It did not strike me till I got off the phone and went through the conversation in my head. I'm now convinced they either did not receive the documents from my current clinic, or they did, but did not file them together, because they arrived separately or something.
- He talked about the uterus - but in the last 2 years or so, the doctors have been dismissive of my uterus, saying there's a slight indentation, but nothing that's obstructive, and nothing that is fixable.
- He talked about a laparoscopy I had had 5 years ago, but mentioned nothing about the hysteroscopy I had last year.
- He talked about the metformin that I was put on 6 years ago.
- He asked me if I'd had surgery to clear the ectopic.
- He asked me if I've had the Thrombophilia panel and the Antiphospholipid panel
- He said he didn't have the embryology and PGD reports from our last 3 IVF's (and I at that moment thought that the lab may have a separate file on me which I didn't think of)
Later when I assimilated everything, I found it odd that he would not know about the fact that I was given methotrexate to end the ectopic. That had to be right on top in my file, because it's the latest thing on me. The Thrombophilia and Antiphospholipid panels have to be right there too.
I have left them a message this morning and am waiting for a call back, so I can have the nurse coordinator check and trace down my file!
I'm wondering if the call would have been different, had Dr Sch got and reviewed my entire history!
(I'm also wondering if he thought my file was thick when it contains just half of my records, what would he think when he gets all of it?? :-) Just a thought)
