Found out yesterday that I have to have a salpingostomy for hydrosalpinx. The prognosis he was giving us didnt really convince me that this is going to help me much, anyone have any experience with this? I only have one tube because I had a ruptured tubal years ago so this is our last option before IVF, which I feel is way out of our budget:(

This is to repair the ruptured tube or the non ruptured one?Either way if you absolutely feel like this is not necessary or its not what you want to do because you just want to move on to IVF or for financial reasons let your RE know discuss this how you feel about about it and why.It is your body and you are paying,you absolutrly have final say.I can see how moving to IVF would make more sense depending of course on where you are in your IF journey and what your chances are for conceiving with or without it.Whatever you decide I'm sending positive vibes your way,Best of luck

I'm not sure I can help you, but I feel the same way.
