Help! Do I HAVE to go back to the doc? (long post, sorry) KathyKay 32 kids; New York 23 posts

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. I'll start by copy and pasting what I posted yesterday, sorry.(with some edits, cause I realized I left stuff out



My LMP was on 5/27/2013. On Friday July 12 I decided to take a PT and whattya know, BFP. On Saturday I woke up spotting mostly brown/dark. By Saturday afternoon I was cramping and had red blood. By Sunday afternoon, I had passed two large clots which I believe were fetuses(truly think it was twins), among other clots/tissues/yucky stuff. I know that this was a miscarriage, the bleeding went on and on.. On Monday I spoke with my OBGYN. Tuesday I went in and per the urine test I am "still pregnant". Per the sonogram, I still have blood in me/no fetus/sac/anything unusual or usual for pregnancy. It was confirmed as a complete miscarriage.
My blood work came back(on Wednesday), hcg level of 2780. My doc wants me to go for pelvic and transvag ultra sound, as well as another hcg test. I feel this is almost unnecessary, to rush me for these sonos? HCG levels can stay higher, and even rise, after a miscarriage until ultimately lowering. He has nothing to compare it to, to say that my HCG level is still too high.



The bleeding has pretty much subsided over the last two days and I know it can come back on & off as it has been.. Now this morning I took the antibiotics and after about 30 minutes puked my brains out (an k side effect per my call the OB's office). Then a few minutes ago I started passing major clots again, like I could feel them! It's all tissue, it's nothing scary. But I called the OB and this girl has the nerve to tell me I'm calling too much. I don't know if I'm more mad at her or what happened.



Anyway I'm not sure if I'm venting or asking for help at this point. I don't want to go back to my OB's office cause I am really distrusting of him. He doesn't answer phone calls nor questions when i finally get him. I understand they aren't going to interrupt him while he is with a patient, however I used to work there & know that he has 15 minutes between every patient. He also has my cell phone # and could even text me. We have that kind of relationship in the past, but I feel weird to just ext him with my questions when he is clearly ignoring me.



Must I go back to the doctor? Can i forget this?

After a miscarriage I'm pretty sure they want you to go in for a scan to make sure that you've passes everything and don't need a d&c to clear everything out in case of infection. I'd go just to make sure you're clear and then maybe find a new ob.



Sorry for your loss.

Hi Mrs. Taylor.. thanks.
The thing I don't understand is that they DID do scans to make sure it was complete. Before the bloodwork came back he gave me a hug and said "see you in October for your annual".



That's why I'm so confused. I guess I should just grin & bare it though.

how far along were you? (I dont feel like trying to do the math in my head) If it was an early miscarriage then you should be ok. I had a miscarriage at about 7 weeks and never went to the dr for it at all. If you're done bleeding, take another HPT, if its negative, then just let it go. If you continue to have bleeding, then you may need to go back.

Sorry such a late response.
I was only about 5-6 weeks! I opted out of going back. I finished bleeding, and had negative HPT so I feel good and confident. I felt so depressed in going to the doctors for this.



Thanks for writing back :)
