"The studies we have suggest that being sick enough to need TPN puts you at risk for miscarriage. TPN is not perfect nutrition and it is certainly possible that it is missing something that is important for fetal development, but if the alternative is no nutrition, or extremely poor nutrition because you can't eat, it is hard to see how the TPN would not be better than that."
This is always what we were told before by our previous ob. It was very upsetting when our new ob blamed our miscarriage on the tpn. He made me feel like I was at fault. Basically saying that we wouldn't have miscarried if I hadn't used tpn. I wasn't even his patient then. So I don't see how he could make this claim with such certainty. Just wanted to make sure we weren't missing something. I don't think we will return to him the next time.
By the way justme, we did see a specialist and had a very aggressive treatment plan. But unfortunately, we had trouble getting our insurance to cover her and so we were forced to see the other doctor who was not "comfortable" with our treatment plan. He refused to even consult the specialist we had previously seen. He fought with us every step of the way about everything. He kept telling us that the treatments I had before a pic line, home health care, tpn, etc. were "extreme" and only necessary for the sickest hg patients. Even when he watched me getting sicker by the day. It was so frustrating and stressful.
