Hi Brad

I'm reasonably certain that ZoeBB started out at Manchester.  I don't think she was very satisfied though.  Send her a PM, I'm sure she'll be happy to help.

Shell74 was at Manchester Care.  She may have come across your consultant (I'm sure I've heard his name)

Hi Brad,

We saw Stephen Payne back in 2006.  At the time we were having treatment on the NHS but they wouldn't perform a TESE on the NHS so we went private through MFS.  From what I can remember it took a month, month and a half to get a consultation with Payne and then we were booked in for a TESE about 3 months after that. 

It does seem to be a very long wait, getting your appointment for August.  Have you rung and asked if there are any cancellations or any reason why the long wait? 

We eventually went private due to many problems we encounted with St Mary's and went to Care.  Our first go they used two of the frozen straws from my DH first TESE which ended in a BFN.  Our second treatment they defrosted the last two straws to find nothing and did an emergency TESE on DH after I had EC, it only resulted in 5 sperm being retrieved but all five embryo's fertilized to grade 1's and we are now 26 weeks pregnant.

Have you tried ringing Care and seeing what there waiting time is for a TESE?  I do think Stephen Payne is the best person to perform TESE/SSR in the Manchester area but we got sperm retrieved by Glenn Atkinson.  I can honestly say Atkinson was lovely, he said the TESE was really hard to do on DH but he managed to get the sperm for us.
