Ada apa dengan PCOS?

remember this post about me being at Tropicana Medical Center? well, i have received a few concerns from dear friends and families. asking me about my well being. at first, i was so reluctant to share about the news. however, after much thought, i think with me sharing this will help a lot of people out there that has the same problem as mine.

my meeting with Dr. Surinder Singh sometimes last 2 weeks gave hubby and i some hopes. he was a very kind and thorough doctor. i like him purposely because he didn't hide anything from his patient. after a few abdomen & vaginal ultrasound scan, i was diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

PCOS is a problem in which women's hormones are out of balance. the signs or symptoms of this problems are: acne, weight gain & trouble losing weight, irregular period, fertility problem, miscarriage and depression. in my case, i suffered from weight gain, irregular period & trouble to get pregnant. my main concern was trouble to get pregnant. after the miss-abortion case last Aug 2008, hubby and i have been trying very hard TTC up to the point i almost gave up and stress about the whole TTC period. we tried clomiphene, premarin and several injections but to no avail. several blood tests and x-ray confirms that we have no problem TTC except my period cycle is not the average 28days cycle. mine varies from 28 to 33 days even with the help of clomiphene. so it is very hard to determine the exact time to TTC. and ovulation test kit never been any help to me. and my history of cysts contribute a lot to the fact that i'm having PCOS.

To TTC, Dr. Surinder gave us 3 options; (1) Laparoscopic ovarian drilling procedure, (2) IUI, and (3) IVF. option 2 requires us to have at least RM2,000 in hand per treatment and the success rate of pregnancy is only 30% with PCOS problem. option 3 requires us to have at least RM20,000 in hand per treatment and the success rate of pregnancy is only 60% with PCOS problem. option 1 requires us to have RM8,000 in hand for the procedure and the success rate of pregnancy is 70%. the best thing about option 1 are it eliminates the root cause of the problem and the procedure is covered by insurance. as much as i want to avoid any surgery, this is by far the best option for us.

and so, what is this laparoscopic ovarian drilling? it is a minor surgical treatment that is usually done through small incision (laparoscopy), with general anesthesia. Dr Surinder made 3 small incisions; one at my navel, one at the right side of my abdomen near the ovary (i think), and another one just above my cervix area (i think). they inflated my abdomen with a small amount of Co2 so that work can be done easily without damaging my internal organs. three procedures were done on me during this time of the surgery. (1) D&C procedure whereby my cervix area is washed and cleaned to eliminate any unwanted mucous. result: no abnormal or unwanted mucous. great. (2) Dye injection whereby to see if there is any blockage in my fallopian tube. result: no blockage. great. (3) the ovarian drilling. Dr Surinder made 9 holes each at both of my ovaries. this will help the hormones to enter the ovaries. result: no implication. great.

my own experience:
i was pushed into the OT at around 1:30PM 11/1/10. well, not literally push. i walked into the OT myself actually. The last thing i saw was the anesthesiologist poking my left hand and insert some kind of white fluid. i was hoping to see some JDs & Turks in action but there were non like them. pftt. ok result from too much of watching Scrubs. that time, the clock showed 1:40PM. the next thing i know, i was moaning with pain and shivering like there is no tomorrow at the recovery bay. the helpful Nurse Salmah had to cover my body with 3 layers of blanket. 3 layers i tell u!! clock showed it was 4:00PM. it took about 3-4mins for the painkiller to take effect before i dozed off again. and it was the longest period of my time. not able to move my body to sleep in a comfortable position. had to bite my upper lip to hold stand the after-effect pain until i hurt my upper lip. and couldn't say a word to my hubby or little sister. oh i felt so helpless. masa ni terfikir la betapa dugaan Allah itu hanya untuk hamba-hambanya yang terpilih. but surprisingly, i didn't cry. atta girl!! and i was discharged 3 days later. a week after, i came to TMC for follow-up and remove the stiches. Dr. Surinder also showed us the video of the operation. i didn't bring the video home tho. however managed to find a similar video in the net.

alhamdulillah, i'm recovering well. thank u hubby for ur endless support and love. thank u ma & abah for ur time. thank u angah & adik for ur support, visit and companionship. thank u MIL, FIL, SIL, BIL, nephews for ur visit. thank u friends for the visit. thank u all for the prayers and wishes :)

oh and i like TMC so much. it felt like home spending 2 nites alone. the food was awesome. tak langsung rasa mcm makanan hospital. no smell of medicine or whatsoever. and the facilities i could say a world-class one! i love it so much it makes me want to deliver my future baby(ies) there hahaha.... 

his and her bag, ready for the sleep-in
before: at the preparation unit
after: recuperating at recovering bay



I'm now PCOS-free!!! *inshaallah*

The Evolution of My Handphone...

aku mula pandai memanipulasi hand phone right after my SPM. that was in 2000. tak beli sendiri pon h/p tersebut. songlap my mom's. masa tu h/p hanya untuk call & SMS function sahaja. Nokia 3210 kalo tak silap. gila paling latest and happening la masa tu haha.

then bila tengah buat persediaan nak ke US, abah bought me Nokia 3310. exactly like this picture. the color.
masa ni uish memang la jakun gile dengan h/p. boleh tukar-tukar ringtone *walaupon hanya monotone haha* pastu bole tukar-tukar gamba kat main screen tu hehe. uish nostalgic btol h/p zaman2 dulu nih.

pastu, bila kat US dulu, awal-awal memang la macam takde keperluan memakai h/p. call family pon pakai direct line kat hostel je. tapi bila dah start amek subject yang perlukan kerjasama antara kawan-kawan, mula la tercari h/p supaya senang nak call dorang untuk meeting. that time, register line phone kat US dorang bagi phone free. aku pakai Nokia 6230 kalo tak silap. warna silver.
pastu bile contract abes, tukar service provider lain. die bagi h/p sony ericsson plak.kalo tak silap model T630 rasanye.
mase ni h/p dah makin seronok. banyak additional function *walaupon aku hanya gunakan call/SMS function dari dulu* time ni kalo carik h/p, mesti akan carik yang network die bole cover Malaysia skali. sbb balek Msia bole unlock phone tu hehe.

pastu pakai la plak sony ericsson W series *W stands for Walkman*. time ni pakai W710. exactly like this picture. jakun sket masa tu sbb first time pakai walkman phone. siap bole kira fitness lg haha *tp tak pernah utilize pon*


pastu hubby terchenta hadiahkan W910 utk barang hantaran waktu pernikahan kami. warna merah. i like! time tu kira ini la h/p terhebat di pasaran haha. jumpe plak hubby yang sejak azali minat sony ericsson. memang berhabisan la die study features phone ni sebelom purchase.
dah 2 tahun pakai h/p ni. masih dalam keadaan yang baik. cuma perlu tukar housing je utk nampak baru hehe. banyak berjasa h/p ni terutama kalo kami sesat dan perlukan map sebagai rujukan. trus aje masuk opera mobile. *memang nak let go h/p ni skang. sape berminat, contact la saye ye*

on our 2nd anniversary, hubby dengan baik hati nye membelikan aku Sony Ericsson Xperia X1. *tq sayang!*
frankly speaking, aku hanya perlukan h/p utk call/SMS je. nak browse internet, aku lebih prefer pakai laptop di mana senang utk view everything in bigger screen. tapi sbb orang dah hadiahkan, terima sahaja lah. skang ni keje hubby dok godek2 h/p tu tambah any application yang patut. latest skali mlm td die tambah garmin gps apps hehe. so lpas ni kitorg akan ade pompuan yang guide utk ke mana-mana *tp aku fikir aku lebih pantas bertindak sbg live GPS hubby*.

antara function yang terdapat dlm X1 ini ialah:
* Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support plus HSDPA 7.2Mbps
* 3-inch 65K-color WVGA touchscreen
* Qualcomm MSM7200 528 Mhz CPU and 256 MB DDR SDRAM
* 3.15 MP auto focus camera with VGA video recording
* Four-row full QWERTY slide-out keyboard
* Wi-Fi and built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS * X-Panels interface
* Optical trackpad
* Exquisite and solid metallic body
* Standard miniUSB port and Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP
* microSD memory expansion
* FM radio with RDS
* 3.5mm standard audio jack
* MS Office Mobile document editor
* Opera 9.5 web browser
* Excellent video playback performance
* Superb audio quality

nak type sms pon best gak sbb ade QWERTY keyboard. pakai phone ni mcm rs pakai netbook yang sgt kecik. agak konfius jugak la di awal pemakaian. tapi lama-lama rasa best. dan yang paling syok, sambil aku menjahit, aku boleh pasang windows media player dengar lagu2 indie hahaha...
