I remember thinking about the reversal and wondering if this was the
right thing for me to do. I was looking on the internet for some
reversal doctors. I couldn't find the doctor I was looking for and I
got tired of searching. So I said Lord I'm going to leave this up to
you. Then I walked away from the computer a few days later I came
back and low and behold, the Dr. Perez website was there when I
typed in TR doctors. I said, "okay, this is what you want us to do."
We drove from Kansas to Mexico in a 1/4 ton conversion van. We got
lost a few times but otherwise we were okay. We found the hospital
according to the directions on this site. Bless your soul - they
were correct to the "t".
When we arrived we were hot sweaty - but glad to have made it. The
nurse called Levy and he said he would be there in 15 minutes. He
was very nice. He looked over my reports and said we could do
surgery that evening. We got ready and went to surgery around 7:00
pm that evening. My husband was nervous but he held strong. I woke
up asking questions and they put me back under. After I made it to
the room he told me that they had cut off to much near the uterus;
he did reconstructive surgery as best as he could. I also had a cyst
they removed. Dr. Perez didn't look to happy to tell me we had a
50-50 chance. I was sad. But hubby said that was okay not to worry
about it. My husband was very impressed with the surgery. They want
your husband to go with you. They told him everything they were
doing to me step by step. After surgery, hubby slept in the
van (the back seat let's out into a bed and of course he had
everything in the van, VCR, DVD, and play-station. So we had the
majority of the comforts of home in the van). My daughter slept in
the room with me.
Levy and Dr. Perez are great people and I'm very thankful for them.
I enjoyed my trip. I was thankful that God blessed us there and
brought us back. The trip was wonderful. We got stopped by the folks
that check because my children left some apples in the ice chest! We
just told them they could keep them. You can't bring fruit across
the border unless you declare it.
I received the best care and the hospital was wonderful. The nurse's
were great. I would do this whole thing again. I don't regret
anything that we have done, nor do I question the decision that was
made. Believe me the whole trip was a true blessing and I
wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. We walked on faith and
