Aww that's good Jellybean, round here you have to see the GP for a referral to the EPU, i'm lucky that mine is really good but I know some are less than sympathetic I'm sure everything will be fine when is your scan ? xx
Where is everyone ?
Well ladies i'm being very bad and am drinking rose at this time on a Friday
I've been good for weeks now though and as of today I've lost 19lbs so I deserve a treat On the one hand i'm thinking oh my poor egg's being pickled, on the other I think well nothings going to happen anyway so s*d it
I'm completely organised for our holiday now, honestly there's been so much organising I need a holiday to get over it Just going to get my haircut tomorrow and that's me done , I thought I'd go for something completely different so i'm getting most of it cut off could regret it but it will grow back if I do
I've got my name down on my course for September so I'll have plenty to keep me busy from then so things are going to plan on the career front at least
Found out the new addition to the family is going to be a boy so that balances things out nicely, to two of each , my DD is thrilled as she has a girl and only ever wanted 2 children, not like her mum then
Have a great weekend Ladies xxx

Post subject: Reversal sterilisation
Hi All, I am due in middle June for an operation to reverse my sterilisation and am with Mr Pickles in BMI Nottingham - I am having the procedure with a laparoscopy first then he will open my c- section scar to repair them if it is possible?
I was sterilised in 2003 cut burned and cauterised. So he is not sure if they will repair them
Can anybody give any advice?

Post subject: Getting pregnant after sterilisation reversal!!!
Hi Ladies I'm new to this and would appreciate any advice you can.
so here goes I'm 37 have 3 children 17,13, 8 to previous not so nice husband!!!
Four and a half years ago I met my soul mate we married in Florida last July DH doesn't have any children and I got sterilised after my youngest was born.
So we saved up the money and yesterday I had a reversal, I had it done key hole and came home last night.. My consultant was fantastic said it was tricky as when I had been sterilised they hadn't left much tube one of the ends to play with... Anyway almost 5 hours in theatre he managed to fix them and did the blue dye test which showed both are open...
Really excited and can't wait to try for our baby!!
Please if anyone has any hints tips or advice please do so I would love to hear from anyone who has been or is going through something similar xxx

Post subject: Mr Pickles
Hi Girls I am actually so confused - we went to see a professor for a more thorough consultation and he said after hearing that I was cut, cauterised and my tubes buried my chances were 0% and if he were to be able to attach anything at all it wouldn't work. He said he would not even consider opening me to attempt it as he felt it would be negative!
He said based on my info my best chance at 20% is without a doubt IVF!! I appreciated his honesty- I don't want to be throwing good money away if IVF is what we have to do!! I am just so confused as to whether to let Mr Pickles have a go but even he said he would do a laparoscopy first to see if he could proceed and if her could he would open me there and then but now I feel so unsure whether to proceed with IVF or get my reversal done in Mid June? Mr P also said if he got in and couldnt do it he would wake me up and tell me!!!
This consultant who is a professor - so he is doing this along time said when they cut the tubes that is bad but when they cauterise that causes damage up the tube then they buried them so that means there will be adhesions!
Jes- I really dont know what to do!? Any advice?

Post subject: Reversal or IVF???
Thanks for that - that has cheered me up - Congrats and sorry about the one you lost
It is good to know you have managed to successfully carry on with 3cm!
I am concerned he wont be able to do anything? Were you given any advice prior to reversal? Did the surgeon say to you he may not be able to repair them? Did you have laparopscope first or open ?
sorry for all questions, its so good to speak to another girl who has gone through this

Dident have any test done before hand not so sure if we had of done it the consultant would of done the reversal tbh as after the opp he did say he was not sure if 3cm was enough and the chances of me getting pregnant were slim As you can imagen i was heart broke but in 2010 had the shock of my life
And again this yr
we are due to start IVF in June as I have been TTC anouther little miracle since my boy was 9mths

Thank you for getting back to me jakesmommy, so nice to hear such a happy story, what a miracle baby..
My tubes had clips lady cake but never give up hope and I always say go with your instinct that's what I've done when we were toying with the reversal/Ivf route!!!
How long was recovery for anyone out there who has had a reversal.. I'm feeling really sick today think its maybe from the medications. Although its only early days..

Post subject: Reversal
Hi Helen, hope you feel better soon. Who did you use to do your reversal? Have they done lots? We are struggling to get it done laparoscopically as that would be my preference and the surgeon Mr Pickles only does open surgery which is a far harder recovery like a section which I will dread.... and there are so many thoughts out there that open is better but to be honest my gut says go with reversal?????
Posted: Tue May 28, 2013 2:02 pm
I had key hole surgery and its not anywhere near as painful as I thought... I live in the north east and have had mine done at James Cook hospital. My consultant/surgeon is the same consultant I had when I was pregnant with my three children. Although his speciality is unblocking Fallopian tubes there is another surgeon who could have done my op who does reversals only but by open surgery!!
Again instinct told me to go with the one I chose so I hope I'm right!!!
