Kimberly & John Bivens
Right tube- 5cm
My name is Kimberly Bivens, my husband is John, and I wanted to
share our reversal story. I just want to say to those of you who are
skeptical of going to Mexico for surgery, please donít be. My
husband was probably one of the biggest skeptics around, but after
doing a lot of research, we decided to go to Dr. Perez. I had my
tubes tied in 1997 after the birth of my second child. 10
years later, I am divorced, and remarried as of 4 1/2 years ago to a
wonderful man. He has one son, 18, and I have two sons, age 10 and
12. We really would like to have at least one child together, so we
decided to have the reversal procedure done.
Dr. Levi came in and checked on us, asked a lot of pre-op questions. He was really very nice and friendly. He made us feel very comfortable, and said that the nurse would come in and give my IV at about 6:00 am. My husband slept on the little cot in the room, and at 6:00 the next morning the nurse came in and started my IV. A couple of hours later, Dr. Guerra, Dr. Leviís brother came in and talked to us and told us they would be ready for me at 8:15 a.m. A little while later, the nurse came in and put me in a wheelchair and took me into the operating room. I got on the table, and saw the cross above the doors like everyone had mentioned in their testimonies. They gave me sleepy juice, and after that I vaguely remember them giving me the epidural. The next thing I remember, Dr. Guerra was asking me if I was okay, and he was telling me they were closing me up and that I had 5 cm on each side. Afterwards, they told me that I had a 60-70% chance of conception. I was happy, but not in a lot of pain.
The nurses were great, the room was clean, and everything went well.
The next morning they released me, and we went to Austin, where I
rested up for a few day before heading to Florida. It has been 2
months since my surgery, and my husband and I have started trying to
conceive. I will post an update when we have a baby on the way. I
would recommend Dr. Perez to anyone!
