I saw my surgeon today and my options are worse than I thought.
Two options involve long term antibiotics. One of these may cure it and the other only suppresses it. The third option also aims for a cure but involves several surgeries and 6 months with no joint and my bone flapping in the breeze.
If we want to do IVF in a month... Well the maths just doesn't add up. He hoped I could just keep taking antibiotics through pregnancy but I can't for various reasons - even baby safe ones.
My surgeon said i need to speak to my fertility specialist and she gave the most devastating blow of all. I have to be completely clear of all infection and off all antibiotics for at least a month before we can have any more treatment.
The thing is we may never get a complete cure. I'm just so very sad. I'm going to be so angry if my stupid wrist is the reason i can't have a big family.
Anyway for now I continue on antibiotics for a month to see if I get further improvement, my surgeon will think a bit harder and see what happens then.
IVF is off the cards indefinitely.
