Another blow

I went in for my "routine" blood test today. Two weeks after surgery. I had POAS last weekend and the line was there but very faint, so I was confident today my HCG should have been very low if not zero. Zero would have been great, moving on, looking forward to the appointment on tuesday an planning what we will do next.

I got a call from the hospital and the HCG is 864...this is still very high. The doctor over the phone asked me if I was feeling well (I am), if I was still bleeding (I'm not), and that they were confident they removed all the material two weeks ago. I still have to go in on sunday for another blood test just to make sure the values are in fact falling and not increasing.

This is neverending...

  6. Why in the world would your HCG be so high 2 weeks after surgery? oh, honey, this sucks. So now another test day after tomorrow. You can't seem to get a break. Which is completely unfair and I intend to have a chat with Madame Fate about all of this. In the mean time, can you go back to the pub and find a little comfort?
