 I found myself divorced and remarried to a man 8 years younger than myself. He has never been married and has no children of his own. I want to share that joy with him, Plus I never really felt like I was done with babies. My youngest is turning 11 in March. My oldest will turn 18 on the 29th. 

 I have been accepted by the Drs at North Carolina Center for Reproductive Medicine for a reversal. Now I just need to pay for it and get my travel expenses together. I am using our tax refund money to pay for the surgery 4550. Travel will add another $1000. Well worth it to have a chance at another little blessing smile.gif 

was just wondering if you had your surgery yet?

 I have not gotten it yet. There was an issue at the last minute where a different nurse decided my weight was too high. I went through 2 weeks of hell trying to slim off some weight and make my tummy look better. I talked to the original lady today and showed her pics of my belly and she said I was fine. Now I can pay and schedule but I have cold feet. Not because of surgery, but because I have to make sure I have hotel and travel money in time for it. I am kind of scared because my husband won't help and my income can go up and down.

Wink TR Less than 10 days!

I am 35 years old, I share the same story like everyone else. I thought that I was done with having children even though I knew I was making a huge mistake by getting a TL. I had my TL in 2000 following the vaginal birth of my daughter. Since then I have been blessed with an awesome husband again and he doesn’t have children. However, he has been a wonderful father to mine and I could not leave this earth without first offer him one of the greatest gifts ever. With that being said, I have my TR on 6/27/14, and I am so nervous. I am trying to find things to do to help prepare my body for an effective healing process. I have been taking vitamins and I quit smoking over a year ago. I just want to do this right. I understand that there are no guarantees and I am praying that everything goes well. Are there any suggestions prior to the surgery that anyone that has been through it can offer me?

I am 40, had my reversal on February 5th of this year. I am now 4 weeks, 5 days pregnant. Had my HCG levels drawn this week and they have doubled each time. I go for sonogram next Thursday to make sure it is in uterus. Hope this is encouragement to all! Good luck! God is Amazing and I give Him all the glory.

I did get pregnant once...5 months after surgery, but it ended in a miscarriage very early on. Haven't had anymore luck. I just kinda gave up and have cats now.

Julio at Hospital de la Familia
I am 2 years out from my tubal reversal and still have not gotten pregnant. In fact, I just went to a fertility specialist who told me the procedure did not work at all and I was still completely blocked.

I know that a lot of great places out there can help me, but I see that your signature says Julio at Hospital de la Familia and that troubles me. Either you are planning on going there, or you are Julio and accidentally left your signature in place while creating a fake account to post here.

I went to Hospital de la Familia and it was the worst experience I ever endured. Everyone was wonderful and friendly before I went, but once I paid them, they just wanted me out. I was sent home with incorrect postoperative instructions. My surgery site came completely undone and they didn't help at all. They repeatedly told me they would call me back after speaking to the doctor, but they would never call back. I had to leave message after message, day after day and my poor husband was trying to figure out what to do. I ended up in an ER near home and was told by the ER doctor that the instructions they gave me were totally crazy.

What made matters worse was that the surgeon told my husband he ran tests to confirm the procedure was successful. I felt that no matter how bad the experience was, if I could at least conceive, it would be worth it. But I just found out that the procedure was a failure and that my tubes are still blocked and look like they were never even attempted to have been repaired.

Please don't lose hope. There are so many reputable doctors that can help you. But don't make a bad decision like I did. Saving a few bucks is not worth having your dreams crushed.

You may have better luck, but in my opinion, whatever you do, stay away from Hospital de la Familia.

@stormyd thank you for sharing your thoughts, I came across this thread and read your comment. I just want to confirm since my friend also mention this Hospital de la Familia located in Mexico where she had a successful tubal ligation reversal and arranged by this medical tourism company named PlacidWay. She was referring this hospital to one of our friend when we had a talk about tubal ligation reversal. But when I read your post I begin to wonder if it is really good for our friend to have it done there. Please confirm if the one you mentioned is this hospital I am talking about. I won't be able to share here the link of the hospital since it is restricted by the admin.

Hi Jasmine. Yes, that is the same hospital. Just as a follow up, I have since been to another doctor in the past two months who also confirmed the procedure didn't work. He ran a dye test to check my tubes. The same test they ran at the hospital de la familia. Even though I was told the test was successful by familia, my doctor told me it was not. Please don't let your friend go there. It's just not worth the risk.

I am sorry to hear that you did not get pregnant! I read your post but honestly I had a great experience
with hospital de la familia and after 10 months of TLR surgery I got the news this week that t I am pregnant!
I am very thankful for this to happen but I do understand your frustration. There are other things you can try
like IVF. Hope things turn out ok for you!
