Diagnosis: Irritation

Added Cetrotide .25 mg to the injection cocktail yesterday and had a tee-errible night. Throughout the evening, my Cetrotide injection site was tender and rashy. Then I woke up at 12:30 feeling HOT (but not in any of the good ways) with an abdomen out-to-there and swelling/painful burning & itching in the nether-est of regions. Tried but just didn't need to use the restroom, so I drank a bottle of water and a glass of cranberry juice right away. I was able to start purging some fluid fairly soon, but it was another 3 hours before I was comfortable enough to even try lying down again. Nothing in the house to use for the nethers. Not enjoyable.

Turns out all that is just how some ducks react to mixing the Cetrotide with the stims the first time. Antagonist protocol? I'll say.

Day 8 bloodwork and ultrasound first thing tomorrow.

Sorry to hear that you had such a terrible night. Hang on in there!

Hope the ultrasound went well today.
