I knew this was going to come, because I was at such high risk…But about two days before my trigger shot, my doctor said we were going to postpone transfer for a few months and do a FET down the road because I was at a very high risk for OHSS (Produced, 25 eggs, I’m 23, thin, had over-stimulated in the past)
I triggered Friday, February 22 with HCG and had egg retrieval Sunday the 24th. I felt horrible for the two days after retrieval, but then started to feel a little better and therefore probably started to do a little too much. Ever since retrieval I was bloated and in discomfort, but around Friday, I bloated up even worse, was so distended and in pain that I couldn’t breath, and I gained about 5 lbs within two days. I couldn’t sleep, eat, or move, so finally yesterday I called my doctor and today I went in and had 2 liters of fluid drained from my abdomen.
My question is, will I have to go in and get the fluid drained again? It was an immediate relief when I had the fluid drained today, and I feel great now, but I’m afraid…will it come back? My ovaries are still swollen and tender, but I’m not the blimp that I was just hours ago…Since I’m not doing a fresh transfer? Should this fluid retention and pain stay away now? Is the OHSS gone or does it have a chance to come back? I am now 10 days past my trigger shot and 8 past my retrieval…
Any advice or experience would be appreciated.
