This is Dr. David
I am so sorry about your daughter.
it does sound like a bad allergic reaction to dye or rupture or perforation of the fallopian tubes.
almost no one does hysterosalpingograms anymore.
a good transvaginal ultrasound would have been fine to check for polycystic ovaries.
and blood androgen levels and insulin levels are enough to look for polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Hello Dr David
She already knows that she has PCOS and was being checked for blockages and or scar tissue etc which they said at the time of HSG was all clear. If she has suffered a perforation or allergic reaction what should she do? For the record I had this procedure done 25yrs ago and suffered no ill effects whatsoever! Why do you suppose she cannot be referred to continue care elsewhere and should she continue to seek medical or is it just a case of rest and pain killers?
* seek medical help
You don't seem to have answered my question Dr David? I've given you a brief account to date and need to know what is the best thing to do now if no-one will see her? This is so frustrating what have i just paid for exactly?
I am sorry, I was in a meeting.
the hysterosalpingogram could be causing more scar tissue in her pelvis
antihistamines and steroid therapy would help decrease an allergic reaction to IV contrast from the procedure.
it sure doesn't sound like she was constipated.
she most likely doesn't need a referral to see a private gyn doctor or private doctor.
she can seek private care most likely without a referral.
I think she should see another private gyn doctor.
she might benefit from a pelvic MRI scan
she can use pain killers for now to help decrease pain.
hopefully her pelvic pain will get better with time.
let me know if you have questions.
