I'm hoping someone might be able offer me some advice/opinions:
I found out 2.5 weeks ago that my pregnancy wasn't viable - gestational sac measuring 7-8 weeks with yolk sac, but no fetal pole and no hb. A follow up scan nearly a week ago confirmed this, so I have a delayed miscarriage.
I have a GP appointment tomorrow, and as absolutely nothing has happened since the scan (no bleeding or cramping, just some brown discharge on and off) I feel like maybe I can't wait any longer.
I don't know if my GP is going to discuss the options with me, or if he has to refer me to the hospital - I was given leaflets at the EPU, but it is not my local hospital so it makes no sense to be treated by them.
I am weighing up medical management vs ERCP under local. Would anyone who has gone down either of these routes be willing to share their experience or let me know their thoughts/fears about them? I initially thought I would prefer medical management, but now I wonder if ERCP would be better since you can't tell how long things will take with medical management. But then again I was keen to avoid risks associated with a surgical option. And of course what if medical management doesn't resolve everything, and surgery ends up being required anyway?
Any advice would be welcome! Thank you
