Tubal Ligation Jan 1994
Tubal reversal Feb 21,
My reversal was scheduled for 02-21-04. My husband and I, and a
friend from work left Athens, Texas around 930am on 02-20. We
arrived at the hospital about 8:30pm that evening. Yes, we drove.
When we arrived, we filled out paper work then waited in a room for
Dr. Levy (he was in surgery). He finally came out of surgery and
talked with us a moment. The only room they had available was the
one we were sitting in. And it was not big at all, no way we could
stay in it. We expressed our concerns about the room, and also about
how hungry we were. Dr. Levy told us to follow him to a restaurant
and he would check into getting another room. While we were eating,
he came back in to tell us that he got us another room at the
hospital. So, once we were thru eating, we went back and got in our
room. That night we just watched TV and rested. Saturday morning,
they came and got me about 6:30 am and I was off to surgery. The
surgery went great and I was back in my room about 8:30am. There was
quiet a bit of pain, but I handled it. (Itís really not that bad!!).
I have 3-4 cm on both sides, and was told we had a very good chance,
being there was no scar tissue and they were very healthy. And once
again, I know it has been said, but he said it was all up to us now.
I was discharged early Sunday morning and we got on the road headed
back about 930am. But we did get home faster, it was about 630-700
when we arrived back home. The total cost for my surgery was
$2350.00 and well worth it. I am scheduled for an HSG May 7th. For
anyone reading these testimonies for the first time, wondering if
you will ever get the opportunity---- I was right where you are now.
Donít give up!! It will happen!!
God Bless!! And thank you Dr. Levy, Perez, Moreno, and nurses,
everyone!! Yaíll are all so GREAT!!
