From British Columbia For Tubal Ligation Reversal Surgery

traveling-from-canada-for-tubal-surgeryTammy is a 47 year-old mother of four who traveled from Kelowna, Canada to  A Personal Choice for tubal ligation reversal surgery.

She is a hairdresser and her husband is retired. Tammy’s husband is the father of her four children and they have been happily married for over 20 years.

Tammy had a coagulation tubal ligation (burning method).

She was not entirely comfortable with her doctor’s experience in reversing burned tubes and she and her husband felt it was important to go to a tubal reversal center where she felt confidence in her reversal surgeon’s skills and ability.

She decided to travel to Chapel Hill North Carolina to have tubal reversal surgery with Dr. Monteith.

Burned Tubes: A Common Tubal Ligation

Tammy had a bipolar coagulation type of tubal ligation after the birth of her 4th child. This is a common type of tubal ligation and it is most commonly know as ‘having your tubes burned’. During this procedure the tubes are coagulated (burned) with a precisely applied electric current. This causes the tubes to close and prevents future pregnancy.

Many people, medical professionals included, have a very negative perception of tubal coagulation because it sounds severe, damaging, and irreparable.

Can Burned Tubes Be Reversed?

Having burned tubes is not as bad as it sounds. The main variable to consider is how much of the tube was burned and this is often dependent on the patient’s physician. Most physicians will perform a 3 point adjacent coagulation on each tube or coagulate 2 to 3 cm of each tube. This is usually reversible.

In our experience a coagulation tubal ligation very repairable type of tubal ligation. The chance of becoming pregnant after reversal of tubal coagulation is 66%.

Tubal Reversal Canada: Kelowna

Tammy and her husband decided they wanted to have more children and add to their family. Tammy looked into having tubal ligation reversal in Kelowna, Canada. After investigating her options she was not impressed with the response she received from her physician and nurses when she inquired about tubal reversal. She did not have confidence in her doctor’s comfort level and ability to reverse burned fallopian tubes.

She did consider in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and the use of donor eggs but decided this was not the route for her. She was very knowledgeable about her chances of pregnancy at her age and decided she wanted to pursue the more natural route of becoming pregnant and she wanted the best chances possible.

This is when she and her husband decided to travel to A Personal Choice for her reversal procedure.

Surgery To Reverse Burned Tubes

I met with Tammy and her husband the day before her reversal surgery. I enjoyed speaking with them and learning about their decision making to have tubal reversal surgery at our center. Tammy and her husband had a healthy attitude about trying to become pregnant and in Tammy’s words:

“We want to just leave the door open to whatever happens…”

Tammy was able to have both of her tubes repaired during her reversal surgery. The staff of A Personal Choice wish Tammy and her husband well on their journey for pregnancy and we hope the future holds great things them.
