Feb 17, 2006
4 cm left and 5 cm right
We are from Mississippi. Tube lengths were approx 4 cm left and 5 cm

pregnant. Due Feb, 17, 2006. Thank you Dr. Perez for our
Karen and Larry Ainsworth
I had my reversal by Dr Perez and Dr Levi, on Saturday November
15th. I didn't get to talk to Dr Perez at all, but I talked to Dr
Levi plenty and he is a real nice person as well as a good Doctor.
It All started with Aimee meeting us at the airport, she was there
before we got off the plane, her and her son and daughter, they were
very sweet children and Aimee was a blessing. We had no worries of
getting lost, she even took us to the store before we crossed the
border and helped us find a hotel room when Dr Levi released me. If
you use Dr Perez, don't forget Aimee and Joe, I would use them
again, Aimee is wonderful.
Once I got there she was going to help me fill out paperwork but Dr
Levi was waiting on me so she left and he went ahead and got me
ready for surgery. The only gripe I have is nothing to do with them,
its me. I have rolling veins and it only took 4 times to find one to
put the iv in. They were kind and tried so hard but my veins weren't
cooperating at all. OK then next I go off to the surgery room, and
as I laid down, there was the cross above the door I heard so much
about. It was very comforting. They gave me something in my iv but
it didn't knock me out, I was awake the whole time. Dr Levi had to
tell me to be quiet that my guts were moving. LOL. I was just
talking away. He probably wanted to knock me out just so I would
They did the epidural and I was numb from waist down, I felt tugging
and pressure but no pain, I had a good anesthetist, but he kept
injecting me with the good stuff to keep me numb. They found only
one problem, and it was a cyst, it had to be busted and taken off.
They said it burst everywhere. Wow I am glad they got it. But he
said it was harmless and I would have always had it anyway and it
would have never caused problems. So that was a relief. And while I
was eating lunch, guess what Dr Levi brought me? My cyst in a jar
for a souvenir. He is so funny. I got good lengths, Dr Levi said he
turned back my time clock. I am sure he was joking but it was a nice
thing to say and made me feel better. I am 41 and now I am whole.
Coming back across the border wasn't much trouble, they opened my
door of the van and asked where I was from. I showed ID and
medications and said I had just had surgery. He looked at my meds
and said ok, go ahead. That was a breeze. Amy took us to Holiday
Express where they have a shuttle to the airport and the room was
very nice and clean. They catered to me since I had just had
surgery. The shuttle took us to eat that night, went out of their
way for me and the next day came to my door and picked up my luggage
and me and took us straight to the Airport. Lucky we got there early
there was a horrible storm in Houston and they wanted to leave 1
hour early. So we got that plane and when we landed in Jackson, Ms,
we heard our plane we were supposed to take originally was still on
the ground in McAllen! Wow God was with us.
My trip to Rio Bravo was wonderful. Everyone was very kind and Dr
Levi was wonderful to me. I did get pics of Dr Perez, but didn't get
to talk to him. I got a pic of Aimee too. Also I got to meet Brenda,
her surgery was on the 16th. So I had a buddy with me and our rooms
were across the hall from each other. It was nice.
Well that's my story, long enough??? I am whole again. I get
stitches out on Monday and after that still gotta go slow. Now I
have fixed my sin I am happy. The rest is up to God.
God Bless, Karen in MS~ !
