Tubal Ligation Reversal - 6 Questions and Answers

Jul 26, 2008
Having had their tubes tied, many women each year decide they want tubal ligation reversal surgery. But there are questions. These days the search for information usually begins on line and allows you to find that information in articles and other resources like this. Below you will find a few questions with answers and pointing to resources about the surgery and the preparation for it.

1) What does the surgeon need before scheduling surgery? This could depend upon the surgeon you select but he will want to see the operative report from your tubal ligation surgery. It provides the information about the type of surgery done and length of tubes left. It lets him know if the reversal can even be attempted. In addition, you will need some lab work done checking out various factors. If you are lucky, your surgeon will have a website like http://www.tubal-reversal.net where you can see what needs to be done before surgery.

2) Does the above preparation work cost? The answer to this will vary according to the surgeon you choose. You may get tired of that answer. If you pick the correct tubal reversal doctor, the review of your records will not cost you anything. The cost of the lab work might be included if you are using a local doctor and the lab work is included in the price. Even then most likely it will be extra. If you choose an out of town surgeon, then you will most likely get the lab work done locally and have to pay for it. According to some accounts this should be less than $200.

3) Can I get tubal ligation reversal done with one tube? Yes. You need only one tube to get pregnant. If there is no other reason it can't be repaired, then go for it if you wish. Check out the tubal reversal board at http://forums.tubal-reversal.net/ for other ladies who have done it with one tube.

4) Can my surgeon cut where my c-section scar is? That's up to the skill and experience of your surgeon. Just how many tubal ligation reversal surgeries has she done anyway? Dr. Gary Berger has done over 7000 and has the skill to do this task.

5) Is too much weight a problem? Well, are you overweight or obese? If so, the answer is yes as it increases your health risks during and after the surgery. It is best to be below a 35 BMI which you can find out using a calculator like the one at http://www.tubal-reversal.net/body-mass-index-bmi.php

6) Should two layers be sewn together or three? The layers in discussion are the three layers that make up the fallopian tubes. You don't want suturing done to the innermost as it has cilia for moving the egg along . Suturing means scars. You want scars or cilia? The outer layer is nothing but a thin covering not strong enough, by itself, to hold all together till the healing is done. But it does help with suturing done in the muscular middle layer, which is the strongest layer. So two layers is best and this is the experience of the doctor who pioneered the outpatient tubal ligation reversal surgery, Dr. Gary Berger.

Hopefully this set of questions and answers will help you with making your decision about a tubal ligation reversal. Check out the resources given above and our resources listed below to ask more questions.
