Anyone have pseudotumor cerebri and have gotten pregnant?
On Monday I went to my annual pap check and asked my doc about pregnancy while having pseudotumor, in case (in the future) I wanted to have another child. She pretty much said that I'm a huge risk factor and most likely would die if i do decide to get pregnant again. She also pushed the idea of getting my tubes tied so that I could no longer have kids due to my "disease".
The thing is when she was saying all this i could not help but want a second opinion. She made it clear that if i do decide to get preg. that i would be such a huge risk factor i would have to see a specialist which is about 40min away because they would no longer be able to see me at that office. Which made me feel very unwelcome and strange when she said that not sure why. Maybe they only deal with healthy pregnancies? which doesnt sound right to me.
Today (Wednesday) I received a letter saying she no longer will be working at that office as of January. I cant help but feel she was wanting to scare me into getting unnecessary surgery. On another note I have my neurologist saying that if i did want to get pregnant again it wouldn't be a problem with my condition. So I'm just confused on who to listen to.
Anyone on the same boat as i am?
Have you gotten your tubes tied? How long was recovery? side affects?
Any suggestions or ideas would help
thanks ladies! :-)
