Pregnancy #1 m/c
5 cm both sides
I wanted to add a follow up testimonial. My name is Andrea Weeks and
I had a reversal May 13, 2006. I was pregnant and had a miscarriage.
Please add an angel in heaven to our testimony.
Thank you all for your prayers. After my surgery we met my family at
Myrtle Beach for a few days and we just got home last night. We had
a nice time. I rested while everyone kept busy and it was great
having everyone there together.
Here's my story.....
We arrived in McAllen Friday, May 12 around 4:00 and Marcos picked
us up. He is awesome, so kind, and a pleasure to talk to! He took us
to the hospital and got us checked in to a big room and we waited
for a while. The nurse came and I took a shower and got my IV...that
wasn't so good. My veins didn't cooperate and I almost passed out!
Then hubby ate supper and they came and took me to surgery. As I
turned in to the hall for surgery Dr. Perez was there and I cried
out of thankfulness that I was finally there! So I got on the table
and got the epidural and the surgery began. Dr. Moreno, the
anesthesiologist, was awesome! He was so kind and held my hand and
rubbed my hair and comforted me. I never went to sleep and one time
I needed more meds in my epidural because I could feel some pain.
Dr. Moreno was so fast with the meds. and everything went well.
The Dr. that did my ligation cut my tubes at the uterus on both
sides. They put me back together but are concerned about scar
tissue. I have 5 cm on both sides and my ovaries look good. My
incision is completely healed and I feel good. I took Ibuprofen and
didn't have much pain, just mild discomfort. I rested a lot and am
being very careful not to do too much. For me, the IVs are always
the worst part :). I was ready to get up and walk around and shower!
I was so glad I had a Spanish/English dictionary! I took support
panties and was VERY glad I did! They are great. I also took a
portable DVD player and movies. My room didn't have a VCR but it was
nice and big! The nurses are great! I got so much rest unlike US
hospitals :). The hospital is clean and quiet. Dr. Levy checked on
us a lot and was wonderful! Everything was so calm and unstressful
and I was so grateful! There were times when I was concerned about
this or that but overall I am so glad I had the opportunity to have
such a skilled surgeon. Oh yeah, Dr. Levy's FIL is taking over the
shuttle service. He is a very nice man!
I am grateful for this opportunity and that it all went well! Thank
you all for your help and advice! I am thankful for the outcome and
know that it is all in the Lord's hands! His timing is perfect!
Blessings to you all!
