Post subject: Reversal this Friday with Dr Pickles
Has anybody else out there had this procedure done with Dr Pickles?
Im also wanting to know what the recovery period will be like following the procedure?
I have 21 days off work... do you think this will be enough?

I've heard of Dr Pickles if its the same one in nottingham someone came on back in january to say they were going to have the Op but then never came back to update
Is it open surgery you're having ?
The recovery time seems to vary with that some women say they were over the worst of it in a week others felt it took a few weeks
,I had keyhole sorry ,so I was fine the day after and just had a little bruising and was back driving and exercising within 5 days ,so I don't know what opens like
The reversal threads a bit quiet at the moment but if you post in there (getting pregnant after reversal) then someone who's had open surgery should be able to give you a better idea of recovery times
Good luck xxx

Sorry for late reply!!
Yes it is Dr Pickles in Nottingham. I work as a midwife and couldn't get a decent recommendation locally so had to travel to see him after doing my own reseach....
It was open surgery and so today I'm feeling it... cant walk very far or do very much at the moment.
Staff there were lovely and they have the patience of saints bless them
Anyways, it appears my tubes are in great condition and the reversal was pretty straight forward so here is hoping it will work. Im certainly not going to stress over it... what will be will be
Thankyou for the replies xxx
