Coping with ectopic after having methotrexate

Is this the right place to post?

Has anyone else been through the emotional turmoil of coping with the wait after having methotrexate for an ectopic pregnancy?

It's been 4 weeks now since I was diagnosed and 1 week since the injection, 5 days in hospital and many scans and blood tests. I'm so nervous every time I get a slight symptom I think I'm going to have a ruptured tube and need to be rushed into A&E.

I have been offered a lap but I so want to save my tube if I possibly can.

The waiting for my hcg levels to fall is agony!

I never thought I would be hoping not to be pregnant!

I had methotrexate in February (I'd already lost one tube in October to a previous ectopic). The waiting is horrible especially as all you normally want is the levels to go up and this time you're wishing they'd go down!

It took a couple of weeks for me - I think - but it is a bit of a blur as I took no time off work so I was asleep on my feet most of the time.

But don't worry as long as you're having the blood tests when you're told you'll be fine - I too had loads of twinges that made me panic, if you're ever worried call the hospital and ask their opinion - that's what they're there for!
