I had my retrieval with the IVF today. They had trouble finding a vein first thing. I've never had an IV or surgery before so this is a complication I was surprised with. Finally, the anesthesiologist put it in on the opposite side of my elbow and I couldn't bend my elbow at all. When I came out of the anesthesia I kept trying to take off my mask not remembering where I was and what I was doing. Then the pain set in. I couldn't stop crying because my ovaries hurt so bad. When the Tylenol kicked in I felt sooo much better. I had 26 eggs retrieved and 3 were duds basically, so they are working with 23 eggs. The doc said that my left ovary was hiding behind my uterus so she had to push and pull to get to it. I think I could have lived without knowing that information, but it makes since why it hurt so bad now. Next comes the transfer.
