I didnt have an opportunity to respond this past weekend but it sounds like your consult was great! I remember when I went to see Dr. Check, I had a funky cycle that month and he wasnt sure if I ovulated because they didnt see a collapsed follicle. I also remembering very vividly thinking it was the beginning of the end but he has managed to turn my cycles around. I know you mentioned that you worked something out with him regarding monitoring. Based on my past history, I have to use a different diagnosis code for my monitoring. Each and every time I call for the script, I remind the nurses to use the different code on the script. The scripts have a standing code written on there so they have to write in the right code.
Sounds like estyinl is working for you if your hot flashes are gone. I experience the same thing, it is a magic drug for sure!
