Tubal reversal Nov 20, 2004
Hello to all! I just wanted to say thanks to Dr. Levi, Dr. Perez,
and all of the great staff at Hospital De Las Americas. Here is how
my journey goes. I began searching for a TR doctor in 2002. My
fiancÚ and I had decided that this was something that we wanted to
do and the search began. We looked over many many doctors, spoke
with many doctors and my Darren even had an SA test done to make
sure all bases were covered. One day I came across the website by
accident and was very intrigued. I called Darren and told him what I
had found. We both looked over Dr. Perez's site and agreed to check
him out. My sister in law is in the medical field and is from
Honduras so she helped us do some research. All came out great and
so I called Dr. Levi and spoke with him in September. I was so
impressed that I set my surgery date that day. It was set for
November 20th, 2004. I didn't think that the day would never come .
Then, before I knew it, it was here.
We traveled from Metairie, Louisiana on Thursday night and got to
Houston late. On Friday morning, we set out for a long drive to
cross the border. The weather was nice and the drive was fast. We
made it there in no time. The border crossing was easy as pie and we
found the hotel right away. I was not scheduled until Saturday
morning, but we decided to check in at the hospital and see what
they needed me to do before the big day. Well, to my surprise, Dr.
Levi said since I was already there, they would take me that night.
I was sooooo excited!!!!!! It was 4 pm and by 6:30, I was in
surgery. The hospital was so clean and well kept. The nurses were
very efficient. I was out of surgery by 7:30pm and feeling good.
My mother, sister in law and neice stayed in the Las Mansion Hotel
down the street from the hospital. They said it was really nice. I
stayed in the hospital that night and Saturday around 1pm I was on
the move back to Texas. Dr. Levi said that everything went really
well and that my lengths are 6cm on both sides. As a side note,
Darren had met a few other husbands whose wives were having surgery
this weekend, too. Two of the ladies were from Louisiana and two
were from Texas, I believe. I want to say congratulations to them
and I hope all of their dreams come true.
Again, I wish to say thanks to Dr. Levi and all the people who made
my dream come true. Today, is November 21, 2004 and I am back in
Houston. I am fine, just a little sore. I will post the picture soon
that we took in front of the hospital.
Good Luck to all and God Bless.

P. S. Dr. Levi, we found the Tejano Saloon to go dancing next time I
come to go shopping.!!!
