I was diagnosed with stage III TTTS last Tuesday eve. My donor's sac was at 0 cm and recipient's at 13cm. By Wed we were on our way to see Dr. Quintero in Miami who came in with his team on Thanksgiving to do the laser ablation surgery. They are just amazing by the way.
We are now back in NY, went for follow up today. Recipient is looking quite well and donor twin now has 3 cm of fluid which is very good. We go for an EKG for donor's heart on Wed too...
Im so grateful to all of you who have been though this on this board and other boards on the internet who have shared your experiences, stories and hope. Now, I am having so much trouble containing my worry... Im 21 weeks and the idea / hopes of making it past 30 weeks is so daunting. Im so scared. We are terrified of whether or not they will have neurological damage, heart problems, if they will both make it, will I end up with reverse TTTS, etc. etc, etc... And logically I know that worrying is gonna make things worse or at the least, not help, and if there is anything to go wrong, there is nothing we can do. Im on bedrest now and Im eating healthy taking my vitamins, etc. I am blessed with an amazing, supportive husband, and Im still bugging out. How do / did you all contain your anxiety?
