Tubal Reversal After Losing A Baby

tubal-reversal-after-lsoing-a-childNot everyone wants a tubal ligation reversal because they are remarried and wants to have a child with their new partner.

Regret, separation, and divorce are common themes among couples who seek a reversal of their tubes but there is another unfortunate and frequent event that causes couples to seek tubal reversal.

This is the loss of a child.

One such patient is Kristen who came to us from Raleigh, North Carolina because of the unexpected loss of her new born baby.

Tubal Ligation And Losing A Child

Kristen is 34 years-old, married, and a mother of two children ages 5 and 3. She is from Raleigh, North Carolina and works to prosecute insurance fraud. She had her third and last c-section when she delivered her last child in 2012. She had a tubal ligation during her c-section because she had completed her family and did not want to have any more kids.

After returning home and healing from her c-section her family was perfect and she was content. Kristen’s baby then suddenly died from unexplained reasons at 5 months of age.

Reversing Tubes Or In Vitro

Kristen and her husband did not immediately decide to have another child. They took time to cope with the loss of their baby. Kristen came around to the idea of another child sooner than her husband but he eventually warmed to the idea of having another baby. For Kristen it was a simple decision. She did not want IVF and she wanted to have a tubal reversal.

Recommendations For Tubal Reversal

Thankfully for Kristen she had several friends who were nurses in obstetrics and gynecology and who worked at a busy hospital on Labor and Delivery. They recommended without hesitation that Kristen head directly to A Personal Choice.

Kristen decided to talk to her ob/gyn about tubal reversal and her doctor referred her to Carolina Conceptions in Raleigh for an evaluation of all of her fertility options.

Once at Carolina Conceptions Kristen shared her interest in tubal reversal and the IVF doctors there also recommended she come to A Personal Choice for reversal surgery.

Raleigh Tubal Ligation Reversal

They decided they were coming to Chapel Hill, North Carolina to have tubal reversal at the A Personal Choice.

Kristen was lucky because she only had to travel about 30 minutes from Raleigh to get to A Personal Choice. Her trip was far shorter than it is for most of our reversal patients.

Reversing A Tubal With Dr. Monteith

Her reversal surgery was a success. Both of Kristen’s tubes were repaired. Her tubal lengths were each 10 cm. The estimated blood loss was 30 ml (6 tsps) and the total operating time was 47 minutes.

She was discharged back to the hotel doing well and with minimal pain.

Success Of Tubal Reversal

reversal-patient-poses-with-her-nurseIt is too soon to tell if Kristen’s tubal reversal will be successful; however her tubes were in excellent condition and we expect her to become pregnant without any difficulty.

You can never replace a lost child but having the burden of a tubal ligation removed from your shoulders and having the chance to create new life does provide many couples with the hope of adding to their family and, in some small measure, helping to ease the pain of having lost a child.

Having a tubal ligation reversal will never totally relieve the pain of losing a child but the surgery can provide a couple with hope as they look toward the future.

The staff of A Personal Choice wish Kristen and her husband well on their journey and we hope to hear good news from them soon.
