Hi,
My name is Debra, I am 43 and ttc. I had tubal reversal surgery last may and then in Nov. an hsg that showed my tubes were blocked and filled with fluid. Last week I had more surgery that showed the fluid was from cysts and my left tube was so messed up from scar tissue it had to be removed. Now I have one good right tube 7cm long, a normal cycle, and an obgyn who is very optimistic. I really pray I find some hope and encouragement here.

Hi,
I had my tubal reversal done in Gainsville Georgia at Lakeshore Surgical Center by Dr. William Green. He is amazing, him and his whole staff are so friendly and compassionate.
I looked around and at first sent my request in to a place in North Carolina but that doctor wouldnt even talk to me because I was 40 and had 3 previous c-sections, he said I'd have too much scar tissue to deal with. So I had given up when I just decided to try this Dr. Green. He called me himself and went over my tubal ligation report with me and gave me my chances with my age and type of reversal he'd have to do and let me decide. When I asked him about the scar tissue issue he said it wasn't a problem it just meant the surgery would take a little longer than usual to deal with that. His price is $6900 which includes your lab work, your medications, and two nights stay at the hotel. He does 3 surgeries a day and has been doing this for years. They have kept in touch with me since my surgery. Their website is www.pregnantagain.com just go there and read all the information. They've had so many women get pregnant after their surgeries its amazing. My insurance wouldnt' pay for mine so we saved and paid for it ourselves. They have a payment plan, several loan plans, and now they have an insurance person who tries to help get insurance to pay. If you have more questions just email me at hassan_debbie@yahoo.com
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Green and his staff, they were so good to me.
