Second Opinion [JadeLee] 1 child; Minnesota 12190 posts

We are putting TTC on hold until we know what shape my uterus is in, but I didn't know where else to post this.



I am having a hysteroscopy May 16th, but the doctor didn't do a HSG or a sonohysterogram or anything, but just wants to put me under right away. I asked if they did hysteroscopies in office and he said no, so that is scheduled for May 16th. He has consulted the other doctor and said "She said this..." and "She agreed with me when I said this..." I guess now I don't know why but I should have just made an appointment with her if I wanted to do what she wants.



So I made a second opinion, which has me nervous all over again. But I feel kind of stupid for doing it, like I should just stick with my doctor and find out everything. Have you ever had a second opinion and had it change things? I have never had to, but will the second doctor think anything of me that I am getting a second opinion?

When I was in the hospital with my first I got a second and third opinion. I felt like I was being pressured and didn't have options. I wanted to be sure I was making an informed decision. It did change my feelings on the situation and saved our lives.

It's always smart to get a second opinion. ESP if it means ruling out all your other options before doing an invasive procedure or going under anesthesia. Id wanna make sure it was absolutely necessary

Well that is good to hear, I have anxiety when it comes to doctors in the first place. So the thought of choosing to go to ANOTHER doctors appointment puts my stomach in knots.

That is what I keep telling myself, the thought of going under is worse than going to another appointment. Or at least this way I won't regret the decision that I made if I do stick with the first doctor.
