I went to the ER with sharp pains in my left pelvic side a week after getting the shot. The mass had slightly increased and there were small pockets of fluid (slightly more than the previous week). I was admitted. The next day my hemoglobin had started to increase, pain was better, no change in my ultrasound, and HCG had dropped to 98. I have been on bed rest with limited walking for the week. Is it possible for the mass to still be there even if my HCG levels drop back to 0?
The only way to verify the mass is no longer there is to make a follow-up appointment with your physician and to request an ultrasound. If your HCG levels are currently at 0, then the tubal pregnancy is not progressing. As always, you should continue to follow up with your doctor to ensure the treatment has been successful.
