    Thank you Linda \/
    Hi Maz, how ya goin?
    Geez, on your MIL poor thing!
    We are all doing Ok, Zac has gotten a cold, & spent the best part of the wee hours screaming :sleeping: he has never done that before, he slept through the night when he was 3 weeks old & has never stirred, you could only imagine how I feel today!!
    On the TTC front, well I think we timed it right, but now when I think about it, bubs would be due in december if it works, & we already have Kaitlyn in December & it's her 10th this year, so not a really good time to be giving birth, but i so hope it works anyway!!
    I forgot to tell you before re your scar, rub some sorbelene in it after your shower, it help soothe it.

    I just found this.

    I don't know if I fit in here, coz my tubal reversal was, in fact, not successful. I had my tubes tied in March 1996 and had it reversed in July 2001.

    I always wondered about other women who've had it done, and what sort of results you all got from it. I was told after my reversal op that it was a great success, but even then was told that my chances of falling were only ever good in the first 12 months post op. When I hadn't concieved in 3 years, I went for further tests which showed the site of my op to be conpletely scarred over and my tubes damaged almost beyond repair. This baby is an IVF baby.

    Is it okay if I hang around for a bit? I know nearly no one who's had a reversal and would love to hear of your experiences. I had looked into further microsurgery prior to IVF, but thought that IVF would be cheaper and give me more chance of success. After 7 failed cycles, it definitely was neither!

    love

    Oh Sushee, how terrible that must have been for you, it took us exactly 12 months to conceive Zac & I am wondering if another would be sucessful too.Although last month I did get a feint poss pg test & I've had a m/c since Zac, but I still wonder if my tubes are still open nearly everyday!

    I'm glad to hear that IVF has worked for you, even though it took a while & I understand what you mean in $$ terms, we had considered that option as well, it is a tough choice to make IVF v's TR & there is so much contradicting info out there! But atleast we have had sucess somewhere!
    Are you going to go back to IVF after this bub is born?
    You're more than welcome to come chat here, it's great to know there are more ladies who have had a TR, being sucessful or not, we are all in the same boat!!

    Oh im sorry to hear that Zac has been sick Storm. My boys both have green gorbies again so Ive been giving them Demazin Clear (which helps them sleep too). You poor thing, your eye balls must be hanging out of your head.
    Hope that this month was successfull for you. Fingers crossed [-o<
    Thanks for telling me about the sorbelene cream. Im sure Ive got some in a cupboard somewere but if I dont Im going to go and get some.
    Hi Sushee. Im sorry that your reversal was unsuccessful. but please stay here and chat with us. We're al in the same boat really wether it worked or not, we all had the same horribly painfull operation. I dont know of many others that have had the op either. One of my closest friends had the op done in Feb 2004 and had her son in Jan 2005. Its funny cause she had her op on my bfday and had her son just before it the next year. I had my op done just after her bfday and am expecting just before hers. I had my op done in October last year and fell early december. I was very lucky.
    Ive had a bit of pain again on my scar. I think its all the pressure again. I get a pain in the right hand side every now and then but the doctor said thats from all the abrasions I have. Im also carrying quiet low again (like I did with the boys) so I cant wait for my U/S on the 20th of April to find out what im having. DH and I think its another boy but we'll just see. Either way, im just happy to have the chance to be a mummy again.
    better go

    Thanks for the welcome girls,

    I am forever grateful for falling with IVF. Just being able to get pg was enough, I didn't really care in the end how it happened. I went initially with the reversal because it seemed like a way for me to be able to have more babies if I wanted. I didn't really want the ligation to start with, and it was only when my XH and I split up that I started looking into getting it undone. In the end, IVF worked for me where it doesn't for so many women, so I don't take that for granted.

    As for returning to IVF, DH and I have one forzen embryo still in the freezer from our last cycle, so will be going back to have that one transferred in May/June next year. But as for going full on for another child, I don't think finances would allow, to be honest. The reversal was expensive, IVF even more so. With my luck, it'll take forever again to get pg again, if I did at all, so this is probably the end of the road for me.

    storm, I've heard that if you've conceived once after a reversal, that your tubes stay clear after. If it took you 12 onths to conceive Zac, then I reckon the healings been done and you're right as rain now!

    I've always wanted to know though, did any of you get extreme pain in the weeks after the op? I got sharp stabbing pains for the first two weeks, and no u/s or tests could pick up what it could be. I reckon it was the scar tissue growing over, but can't prove it of course!

    love

    Sushee, I had heaps of pain after , but I ended up back in hospital with a masive heamatoma, luckly it was back at Hawksbury hospital though! I had the op done at New castle, & spent the next 3 days there, when I got home things got really bad & then the incision burst , I was devistated, but then on the +side of things that's how I met my OB.
    I had my tubes tied when I first met my DH, after a terrible life with my X (sperm donor for my first 3 kids lol) I didn't want anymore kids, poor DH didn't want them done, but we'd only been together for a few months, then 7 years later, I had the op.

    Maz, I am giving Zaccie demazin clear , but it doesn't seem to be doing anything for him ](*,) he still has a heap snotty nose & is such a grump when it's bedtime & feedtime, he is such a terrible feeder at the best of times, so now I am just about cracking up!!
    Is your scar still giving you grief? i dont know wat else to suggest, I know mine was a ****ter throughout my preg, but I would just rub sorb. on it, maybe you should ask your OB about it, surely women who have had a previous c/section would have the same issues, ob may know something to do.
    Sushee, is your scar annoying you?

    Not much sleep again for me last night, but a bit more than the night before, & according to my ff chart I missed my egg, oh well, don't really want another december one anyway, but if they didn't keep moving my crosslines around I would have had a chance.
    Well Zac is cracking a tanty, again, he has never done this before, so I know it's serious.

    Oh Storm Im so sorry Zac is so sick. Poor little bugger. I hate it when the kids are sick, I feel so helpless.
    As for the scar, it more on the inside that hurts. like its pulling when I get up a certain way. My next appoinment with the Ob isn't until the 1st of May but I defently be saying something. I have to ask my gf tomorrow if she had pulling or pain while pregnant with her son. I know the u/s lady said I have heaps of abrasions there so maybe that has something to do with it. Ive had 2 c/s and this op plus my appendix out. I suppose your body can only take so much. Still its worth it.
    I cant believe that you went through all that pain after your surgury Storm. ****! I had pain for a bit after the surgury to Sushee and told everyone is was 10 times worse than a c/s. I woulded do it to my worst enemy.
    DId either of you go private or public? I went on the public list and had it done within 11 months. I didnt have to pay a cent thankfully although we were willing to pay. I went to the Royal WOmans hospital in Melbourne. Which reminds me I have to send them a card with a picture of Mr Wonka when he/she arrives. We were told that we would probably concieve within the first 6 months as we were highly fertile but if we hadnt by 12 months we would then have to consider IVF. Oh I hear you Sushee with the price of that. I think my jaw hit the ground when they told us how much.
    Oh I better go, enough rabbaling from me. WIlhelm is still up (the joys of an autistic 4 year old) so I have to try to settle him down.
    take care

    I think because my op was so long ago, I don't have any pain at the site of my op anymore. I had it done keyhole anyway, so my belly button is much deeper now (and hasn't popped for this pg) and I had two little scars on either side of my tummy, which healed up without much incident.

    I actually had my reversal done in Singapore. I saw a leading surgeon there who took me on, simply because it had been just over 5 years since I'd had my ligation, and I couldn't find a Dr in WA who was willing to do the op for me. The Dr is Singapore had a fantastic success rate, so I guess I stuffed his stats up!

    He referred me to a Dr here for aftercare, and it was the WA Dr who suggested more surgery to try to fix whatever went wrong, but by then I was getting so tired of the running around. Not only did the surgery in Singapore mean that I paid for everything privately, it also meant I had to pay for the flights! And then to be told I may need more surgery that may or may not work anyay was the last straw.

    storm, b*gger on the Demazin not working. If you want a cheap, natural but icky way of drying his nose up, try getting some tumeric powder tomorrow. If you make it into a paste and rub it all across his nose, it should dry it right up. Though I warn you, he'll have a yellow stained nose for a couple of days! Lol!

    Wow at getting yours done for free Maz, I wish I had know about doing that, I went private, with a specialist all the way at New Castle, cost me $6000, but worth it, when I had them tied my AF was a real shocker & the gp I was seeing just kept telling me it was hormomal, the very 1st one after the op was easy & they all have been since. Oh Maz how old is Wilhelm? I didn't know he had autism, I don't even know what autism is (dah) is he OK? Oh ok he is 4 clever me!(not)

    Double Wow at you going to singapore, Sushee!!!! That would have been such an adventure. He must have been a brilliant surgoen to be able to do it keyhole, I had the big cut with staples & it is still annoying now, I have to keep it shaved otherwise it is just so annoying & I hate the sight of it!

    Thanks for the Tumeric idea, but I ended up taking Zac to the Dr & he has bronchial asthma so now he is on Ventolin liquid, things are slowly improving now & we slept all night \/ I was starting to become a zombie!! Still not drinking his milk though, but has been eating solids more, especially things with banana in them, do you know how discusting rice cereal with mashed bannana looks? eww
    Enough rambling from me too, must actually do some housework today

    Sorry mate, I didnt leave you but maybe this is a good sign for Sushee..fingers crossed.
    Sorry about new cycle starting, I'll throw you some eggs mate .
    Only one for week until I have my u/s and find out what Mr Wonka's real identity is..its killing me...i know I wont sleep the night before.
    Great news that Zac recovered, **** about the skin infection. Was it caused from any of the medicine he took? Hope you'rve caught up on some sleep to mate.
    Starting our reno's this week end after council dilly dallied us around. I cant wait cause then I'll finally get Mr Wonka's room started instead of all the baby's things stored in my bbq area. :fuming:

    OOHh Maz, what are you hoping for? Yay for the reno's starting!!
    Nah Zac's skin infection was prob due to him being sick & his amune system fighting that & it let the infection in, Ahh getting so much better now!!
    that Sushee has had her bub & a nice easy birth.

    Hi Kimberely, welcome to BB. I had my reversal done in 2003 after having my tubes tied for 7 years, it was done in NewCastle, Where abouts do you live?
    I now have my little Zaccie & we are going back for number 5, or no 2 after the TR.
    depending on where you live I could recommend a few surgeons, NSW based, but a google search would also tell you who to see!! Goodluck, I wish you all the sucess in the world. Having a TR is such a big decision.

    Happy Easter Guys!!

    Great to hear from you again Storm. I went into due in April and Sushee is appartently in labour? Ive got my fingers crossed for her.
    My OB said that the pain I have in my tummy is from all the abrasions from my surguries. Small price though isnt it.
    I have a funny feeling im going to have another boy. I dont really care this time round. I really wanted to have the two boys as boys but after everything Ive gone through for this one I dont care. I think you can relate cant you girls?
    Welcome Kimberly. I had my tubes reversed last year in October and feel straight away. I have also had 2 c-sections and was told to go for broke when I got home. I cant believe they told you to get your tubes tied after 3 c/s. I have a girlfriend that has had 4 c/s and they said she could have more.
    Having a tubual is painfull though. It is worth it. I was in more pain after the op than having a c/s but i think that is due to there being no baby to side track you.
    I got my reversal done through the Royal Womens Hospital in Melbourne. It all it took 10months from referal date and I went on the public list so I was fortunate not to have to pay. It can cost thousands. Storm had her's done privately.
    Storm and I are prof (is that right :shock: ) that it does work. I was very lucky to fall straight away.
    Good luck in your quest and let us know how you go.
    And dont be a stranger.

    Hi Maz!

    I'm sorry if I stuck my nose in here!
    I have been told that I CAN'T have my tubes tied because I'm too young, I believe after 6 kids I have the right to say I don't want anymore!

    Good on you girls for going ahead and having the reversal done. I'm sure your babies are going to be gorgeous and they will be well loved!
