6cm each side
HSG 3/26/07 Right tube open, left blocked
Well we still aren't pregnant yet but I went and had an HSG 3/26/07
and good news! Right side tube open !!! The left is blocked but it
looks like it's blocked at the uterus and they think it might have
been that way all along. Thanks Dr Perez for giving us a chance.
We arrived at the Hospital just after 4 pm. I didn't eat all day so
I would be ready for surgery. I think I was in surgery by 6pm. Dr.
Levi actually put in my IV in since I don't have much luck with IV's
... thank you Dr Levi. Then I went into the surgery room and got my
epidural, and I didn't feel it at all. My husband took pictures and
some video of the entire surgery. I was awake for most of it but I
guess I fell asleep at one time. The anesthesiologist was great and
everyone spoke perfect and clear English. I met Dr. Perez just as I
was being wheeled into surgery. I was not concerned, ... it's
not much different than the states. And Dr. Levi was available the
whole time I was there. I must have asked him a million questions.
He couldn't walk by my room without me calling him to ask more
questions. When I delivered my first baby I don't even know
who delivered him, and still couldn't tell you.
I took my stitches out on the 9th day. I did it by myself and no one
was home. It was very easy...just followed the directions on the
website. I can see they did a better job on the incision than the
doctors who did my Cesarean in the States. Its healed up nicely. One
cut about 4 inches in the center right along the previous scar.
