Thank you so much again!
I started my search for a tubal reversal in 2003, and after a lot of searching the web and careful research I finally found Dr. Perez. I felt my prayers had really been answered. I was so excited when I was finally able to schedule my surgery to be done on February 29, 2004. My friend was needing to have the surgery done as well so we scheduled same day appts. together! We all drove down together from Albuquerque NM, we stopped in San Antonio TX and took in some sights (the River Walk, Alamo etc.) We had a great time. We then went to Corpus Cristi, my husband had never been to the ocean so we checked out the Gulf. Then drove down into Rio Bravo.
We arrived in the evening and were greeted by the wonderful staff who then escorted us our cozy little rooms which were very clean and comfortable. The next morning we met with Dr. Levi. He talked with us for awhile and explained the surgery and then it was time to be prepped for surgery. After awhile I was rolled down to the surgery room where I met Dr. Perez. They first put in my IV which made me a little groggy, Dr. Moreno gave me the epidural and I never felt anything. It was like it was done and over with and I was still saying 'are you going start it'. Dr Perez and Dr. Levi both talked with my husband (who was able to be in the room and film the procedure while they were doing my surgery, telling both of us what was going on although I fell asleep during most of the surgery and woke up in my room. I was scared at first because I forgot about the epidural and thought I was paralyzed. But Dr. Levi was really great and came in and put me to ease. LOL!!
He told me my tube lengths were
5cm on left and 4 on right. They said I had about a 70% chance to
conceive. I laid down for a few hours, then was able to get up
and brush my teeth, put on make up and was ready for dinner!
They brought me an delicious home made dinner. The next morning
after they gave me a wonderful breakfast and I was able to go to the
bathroom and walk okay, they let me go home. The trip home was
not as much fun as the way there, I was a little sore so I tried to
sleep most of the way home. I felt fine again and was able to
go back to my normal routine within a few days.
