April 2008

My name is LaKisha Epps and I had my surgery on November 11, 2006. I ended up with 7 cms on both sides. I wasn't fortunate enough to have insurance that pays for HSG's so I didn't get one. But after almost 13 months of TTC after a loss (I think my math is right), we are excited to be expecting our first together. I am currently 7 weeks pregnant and my EDD is November 19, 2008. I pray that everything works out!! Either way, Dr. Perez and his staff (Kathy, you included) work wonders!!!!

November 2006

My name is LaKisha and my husband and I went to have our reversal with Dr. Perez on November 11, 2006.  Here is our story:  We left our home state of Maryland, bound for McAllen, TX and due to arrive around 11 pm the night of November 10th. But due to a storm, we arrived in McAllen about 1 hour late, but Marco's driver, whose name I didn't catch because I was too tired, was there waiting on us. I didn't get to see much of the sights on the drive down because I was sleep (which you will see a lot in this story). We got to the hospital in record time. Let me tell you ladies, this hospital was so quiet and peaceful, nothing like you will see in the US. The nurses were lovely, especially Clara, she is a doll and took good care of us. Since we got there well after 12, they just told me to get some rest and change in to the lovely hospital gown at 6 in the morning. The time seemed to go so slow, until I finally fell asleep. When I woke up, I changed my clothes, they put the IV in, which they got on the first try), and then Dr. Levi himself came in shortly after. We discussed my medical history and allowed me and my husband to ask any and all the questions that we had on our mind (and believe me that was a lot).

Our surgery was technically not scheduled until 1 pm that Saturday, so of course I was expecting to have time to adjust to the fact that our time would finally be here, in just a few hours. But when he started asking me all these questions, I decided to ask what time were they planning on doing the surgery. He told me NOW, it was 9 in the morning. He was like, we don't have anything else to do, so why not get it done was I SHOCKED would be an understatement. Again, I am thinking I had at least a few more hours to prepare myself. DH, said lets go and that's all he wrote.  Maybe 20 minutes later, I was being wheeled down to the operating room. Dr. Jose (don't know his last name) was such a doll, he assured me that DH would be in soon, as I was getting worried that they were starting the surgery without him. When he finally did come in, I saw him, but I was already in "happyland"  doped up and dosing off. I don't remember much after that, but I was told that the surgery took about an hour and half and everything went ok.  My husband took some wonderful pictures.  When I did come to, Dr. Levi was in there telling me that I have 7 cm on each side. And like a lot of the ladies on the boards, my Dr in the states entered some misleading information on the operative report. They did a partial Fimbrectomy on my right side. Dr. Levi also said that I had a good amount of scar tissue and adhesion on my right side along with a small cyst that they removed. But other than that, they fixed it and my left side is perfect. The next day Dr. Levi came in and talked to Antoine and I about the surgery and my recovery time and assured us that everything looked good. And I can honestly say, again, this was the best experience ever.

I say to you ladies who are skeptical about leaving the states for medical care, to set aside the stereotypes, research and ask many questions. Dr. Perez and his staff are the best and he came highly recommended to me as I now highly recommend him to everyone who is interested.  Thats our story, thanks for letting us share. We will definitely keep you posted as we join the trying to conceive game in the near future.
