I read the news yesterday that Dr. K, the only RE I ever saw locally with a shred of compassion, died at age 61.
Dr. K performed my last D&C on Good Friday, 2015. She honored my
request to have it done under ultrasounds guidance, as per the
Asherman's A-lister way. The scarring never returned.
She was a huge booster of fertility preservation for cancer patients too.
Oh man, my heart is heavy. Had her clinic allowed satellite monitoring, I would have absolutely cycled with her. Trust me, I begged them. Her clinic had a donor egg program that was strictly anonymous, and therefore a no- go for us. But besides the irritation of lengthy travel, it would have been nice to have this angel in my corner.
I often told local women to go see her, despite being affiliated with a health system that doesn't have the best SART stats for IVF. Her clinic took on the worst patients, unlike Babies Guaranteed - who kicked me to the curb the minute my FSH jacked up. She offered kindness and hope to me when I was at my lowest.
Rest in Peace Dr. K.
