I cannot give all my thanks in the world to Dr. Perez and Dr. Levi for the wonderful work they do - because of them I'm holding my little miracle today. I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on 9/3/09 he was born on 9/3/09 at 12:35 am he weighed 5lbs 12 oz 17 1/2 inches. although he was 3 weeks early he's very healthy and it truly is a miracle.
thank you more than you know!!!!
I had my tubes tied after my birth of a premature baby at 27 weeks,
he had several problems. and just didn't think that I could take
care of him and another child after that. 2 years later he
went to heaven from complications with surgeries and just his
overall health. I then a couple years later got divorced, things
just didn't work out and met the love of my life. we got married and
wanted a child together so bad. I heard about Rio bravo on a forum
and after tossing it up in the air and being nervous about going to
Mexico, we decided after all of the good things we heard about Dr.
Perez and Dr. Levi and what magical hands they have, we decided to
schedule. it was the best decision I ever made. I had surgery on
April 4, 2008 The surgery went very smoothly, their was a bit of a
language barrier, but the nurses were very nice and professional,
everyone their knew exactly what they were doing. I ended up with
6cm on both sides. we left the next day after I had the surgery and
flew back home. the recovery was no joke, It was a bit painful, but
any surgery post op is. I had an hsg done in October of 2008, both
tubes were wide open.
Just wanted to say Thank you to Dr. Perez after 9 long months I got
my bfp today. thank you!!!!
I had my surgery on the 6th of April. here is my story. My dh
and I caught a plane at 5 in the morning to go to McAllen TX.
everything went smoothly and we made it on time. when we got
their I called Marco for the shuttle and he said that someone was on
their way. The guy driving the shuttle (not sure of his name) was
picking up another couple and then will be their to get us. we
waited outside of the airport for about 15 minutes. all in all not
bad we didn't have to wait very long. Marco called me back and said
that the hospital was full and we would have to stay in a hotel by
the hospital until the next morning of the surgery. which was fine
with me. my dh and I had time to walk all over the town that night
and take pics and look around. The Hotel wasn't bad it was kinda
nice. their were 2 queen size beds and a tv with a couple English
channels. the beds were kinda hard, but it was still ok. Dr. Levi
arrived the next morning at 8 am to pick us up for our surgeries.
they brought me in some Jell-O and tea and I had some and they gave me some iv pain meds and I instantly threw up. they told me that I ate to much to fast. lol what did they expect I was hungry!!! after that I went a little slower and didn't throw up again. I cant take any kind of pain meds they have that effect on me - it makes me throw up. I really liked that they left the epidural in because when I was having a lot of pain they would push some medicine in and it would numb me up and i would feel a lot better. that was a god send. I had to lay in bed they said 24 hours after the surgery and I am so not a person to lay around it was killing me but I listened to the doc and waited. i couldn't sleep i was up most of the night watching robo cop 1 2 and 3 lol. they came in about 4 in the morning and took out the iv catheter and epidural. thank god, I wanted that catheter gone it was really starting to rub me the wrong way. lol as soon as the stuff was out I was up and walking i had to move around. (those beds are hard ) she asked if i wanted more pain med from the epidural before she pulled it out and i was like no way i thought it would numb up my legs and then i couldn't get up and walk around. One of the docs came in after the surgery and told me how it went and how many centimeters i had. they were very professional and knew what they were doing. I was really impressed when they typed up a dictation report like they do here in the us saying what they did and all. I can give that to my doc here so she knows exactly what they did.
a few hours later they told me to take a shower. the nurse was busy so it took her a while to get some towels. the water was freezing when I turned it on it took about 10 minutes to warm up but when it did it felt so good. i stayed in their for a long while. and felt much better. now hot showers are my friend. I could take 20 a day just because it relaxes me and feels good on my sore body lol.... after the shower the doc said that the shuttle would be leaving soon ya me and dh were so ready to get out of their, not that it was a bad experience because it wasn't just that we were ready to go home. that last 24 hours seemed like a lifetime. they gave me some pain pills and some penicillin. we got in the shuttle with the other couple (by the way she was doing good too) and off we went back to McAllen. he didn't seem to hit a lot of bumps the ride was pretty smooth. going over the border was way easier than I thought too. they took our drivers licenses and birth certificates and asked if we were taking anything back over the border and we just said our meds and off we went we were their for maybe a total of 5 minutes. well our plane wasn't suppose to leave until 6:30 and here it was before noon. so i thought were going to have to sit around for hours and hours but the airline gave us standby tickets and we were able to catch the next plane out to Houston where we had to switch to phoenix. we got to Houston and they gave us anther standby and didn't have to wait for hours and hours. well that came to an end when we got to phoenix they said they couldn't do a standby because our tickets were for the next morning so we had to get a hotel and wait it out. which was really a good thing I was really hurting from all the walking those airports are huge. and all the sitting in the airplanes. the nights rest was just what i needed. me and dh got up the next morning caught the shuttle to the airport and off to home we went. 21/2 hour flight. we got home on the 8th around noon.
I'm still sore but that's to be expected I'm popping the Tylenol and ibuprofen like candy. I had a little gas but nothing like i had when I had my gall bladder out and its not really their anymore. thank god that is the worse feeling in the world. if i had to do it again would I? YES definitely.... they were very nice and professional and they know what their doing. the whole idea of going to Mexico in the beginning scared the bidigees out of me but I'm very very glad I went. and it was a pleasant experience. now its the recuperating that i wish would hurry. lol I feel incapacitated i cant sweep mop vacuum bd drive for 15 days WOW!!!!! that seems like such a long time. lol.
