    I like the name Mackenzie. It is a name with a statement. This little girl was meant to be, and therefore the name is very just, as it is a name that is meant for this little girl. Kiya

    Default Tubal reversal

    Hi,
    I have 5 children aged from 3 years to 13 years (4 are at school one at home).
    I had my tubes clamped when my last was born (august 2004) and regret it.
    I live in newcastle and I have found a doctor to do the op but he wants $7,600 (too much money for me ) I have read on here that some have had it done in a public hospital and waited on a list, does anyone know anything about this?
    I have had so many problems since my tubes were clamped, where to start? my periods are like 10 days now sometimes more.... My vagina is soo dry and sex well I have kindof lost some Interest in it.... I also Itch like mad mostly on my legs but sometimes on my lower back i'ts like my skin is really dry and no matter how much I apply creams it seems to remain dry... I never had anything like this before my T/L and I was never DRY ANYWHERE..... I want a baby really bad but dont have $7600 in my bank and cant find any cheaper in newcastle.
    my family would not loan me as they feel 5 is enough, mind you they talked into this T/L.....
    I have a long term partner we are not married but he is the dad to all 5...
    marriage wont change anything so we chose not to do it...
    has anyone had a T/L reversal in a public hospital and if yes when and how long did it take on the waiting list and how do I go about it????
    I have to get these clamps off ASAP and become normal again....

    Hi Mummy25, I'm not sure of any public hospitals in NSW, but you could try VIC. I'm not sure who on the forum had it done in VIC, as my brain is a bit loopy today, but i don;t think they had long to wait. Sorry i can't help you as i am in QLD, and they no longer do public up here. I'm not having a TR done anymore, but going to do IVF as it is sooooo much cheaper, and not long ago was told that even if i did have a TR i don;t have much of a success rate because i have a lot of damage from my endeometriosis. Cheers kiya

    Mummy25.... I have 5 kids too and so dearly wanted another but i had my tubes tied after my last one.I had my T/R done at RPA but it cost me $3500 and i never fell pregnant and you cant get any guartees you ever will and if you do fall the eptopic rate is quiet high. So i ended up doing IVF thru Westmead and it was so much cheaper ($1440 start to finish $348 cash back)and i so wish i had of done that in the first place. Fell pregnant first go thank goodness.

    Hi girls how is everyone god its so quiet in here noone around.
    Well i had a hospital app last week and they asked if i wanted my tubes redone after this bub born as i will already be opened up and it WOULD BE REAL EASY she said.I said no thanks i will be leave my body the way nature intended it to be. WHy she asked" So i told her the story of my experince after having it done. And she laughted at me and said there is NOTHING that changes in your body when having it done. I told her to get on bellybelly and take a look at that thread post T/L syndrome. Dumb bit#@ch could have knocked her out she just didnt listen to a word i said and wouldnt believe a word i said

    Hi mum of 5 wow Ivf is cheaper than I thought it would be...
    I would rather try this I think "tell me more"?
    who do I see and do i need a referral?
    can they still do ivf if you have clamps on your tubes?
    I have had 3 c/s and i know I would have another as they refused to let me go natural with my last baby.
    so I could give them hell about not informing me of the side affects and hope they will fix my tubes when having bub.
    How many fertilised eggs did they Implant? can you opt for 3 to go in just to be sure? Or more???
    was it hard the Ivf process in saying that I mean did any of it hurt, the needles, or egg retrieval? did they get many eggs.
    wow I am going to ask the doc tomorrow on costs of ivf as he is the one who wants $7600 for a reversal and he does also IVF....
    If I had $7600 I would do this but the option you chose is more our budget.
    Thanks for your Info and look forward 2 more......

    Here is the site WestMead Fertility Centre take a look and see what you think.
    Give them a call and they will point you in the right direction.
    It was all pretty easy really it was. I made sure one appointment lead into the next one so as to not waste any time if you know what i mean.
    Taking all the drugs does take its toll on your body emotionly tho.
    But we all managed the best we could(small price to pay for what i have now).
    When i went in for my egg retrieval they said that the drugs they use may make me go to sleep but i might stay awake but be very goggy(which is what happened to me. It was pretty uncumfy but no where near as bad as labour.
    We got 17 eggs which was good and out of them 12 fertilized.
    We decided against doctors wishes to have two embryoes put back(2 is the max unless you have had many fauled IVF attempts). As far as we seen it two was better then one but thats not the way it works so the doctor reckoned(i didnt believe it tho).
    So we fell pregnant with twins first go very lucky but one baby only made it to 8weeks. I have one very strong bub now which is just a blessing, over the moon.
    It doesnt matter if your tubes are still clamped because with IVF they bypass the tubes and put it straight into the uterus.
    So we ended up having 10 eggs left which the lab left to grow until day 6 which is called blastie stage. Not many eggs ever last to this stage but they have to grow them to this stage so as they can freeze them. So we ended up with 4 that are now frozen and safe.As for having a c/s with the next bub they wouldnt let you deliver naturaly after 3 c/s anyway far to dangerous. Ive had 2 c/s and this will be my 3rd

    Oh yeah one more thing there isnt a long wait either before you can start i mean waiting list. It took me 6 to 8 weeks just in seeing the fertility specialist first then they refer you and waiting for periods to come.

    HI I will give them a call.
    Did you have private health Insurance by any chance? as we dont and was wondering if I should wait untill we get some?.
    What I mean is did your cost Include a rebate from private health or only medicare?
    I'm hoping to get 3 put in as i have misscarried a few times, does not sound like they will let me but i can ask is all.
    I know all 3 would not survive.
    How long did you stay on the med's? prior to egg collection?
    Did your hubby have to give you injection's every day as I heard this is one of them....

    Huh who can afford private health insurance with 5 kids not me thats for sure. No all you do is when you go in to westmead for your fisrt appointment you give them $1440 and they will provide you with all the services you will need to get that bundle. Once you have finished your cycle they will give you an invoice that will be able to take to medicare and get about $348 back i think it is. When you go for your first appointment you are normally 1 month into your treatment anyway cause you must go on the pill for one cycle so as its a completely controlled cycle.
    They will not put 3 embryoes back in trust me,well not unless you have had many failed IVF attempts. They only wanted to put one back with me but i pushed for the two to better my chances at atleast getting one baby.
    Once you have been on the pill you go on a nasel spray for about 2wks to down reg your cycle then the injections onces a day at the same time everyday for roughly 2wks. Once your started it takes about 6weeks. I started seeing the f/s in June then seen the clinic in july egg pick up was 22nd August(i had to have one weeks of extra injections cause i had lots of eggs but they needed to get them bigger) and i was 4weeks pregnant by the 8th of september by memory.
    I got my girlfriend to come over everyday to do my shots cause i just couldnt bring myself to do them and my partner did a couple not many tho cause i didnt really trust him,he made me nervous. The shots only last about 14days out of the hole course.

    I am glad you didnt have private health Insurance as I was worried it might be more money, when you paid the first payment do you need cash or can I use my credit card?
    my girlfriend is a registered nurse (I am a assistant in nursing) so i will get her to do the shots for me, as I dont trust my partner he would probebly stuff things up.....
    when in all this did your partner go in with you?
    we live in newcastle so it would be hard for him to attend every appointment.
    but his mum lives in fairfield so I could visit her when down there.
    I am going to see what their web site says...
    Thankyou so much for all the Info, I think I just about have my partner convinced.
    Do you plan on any more? as you did freeze some eggs didnt you?

    Im sure credit card is fine they do have a eftpo machine there.
    My partner only came to the first appointment and then egg pick up.
    I dont have any family here so he had to stay home and watch the kids.
    He will also have to go to the first F/S appointment with you which is before
    you start the hole thing anyway. Because you live a fair way away they might show you what to do in one hit so as you dont have to go in much.
    Yeah we have 4 frozen and it was funny i was watching a show yesterday on discovery Health about a family of 12!!!! Why not i have 6 so why stop now. And i keep getting real bad feeling(guilty)about just wasting my babies and putting them down the drain. But then i think about the big picture and think its a pretty dumb idea even thinking of having another when i'll have 6 soon.People already look at me with disgust in there eyes almost like i have 10 heads because i have more then the norm family. So im really in two minds,i did say nomore this was it! But then when they defrost the eggs they dont all make it some do die if not all. Sooo i just dont know, what if they defrost all of them and they all make it! Then im really screwed.

    WOW....i disappear for a few hours and look at your 2 gasbags (cheeky grin) Mummy25 i also have the filshie clips and they are still on, and i am going ahead with IVF. When i did my conference call to Westmead with my GP, i gave them a brief medical history over the phone, as i have a few more complications like endeometriosis and DVT's which means my treatment will be a little different, not to mention my age. I am putting 2 back in for several reasons and they agreed to that. They did stress like mumof5 said stop at 2. It doesn;t matter how much you beg to have more, they simply won;t do it. Having had several miscarriages also doesn't allow you to put more than 2 back in either. I can't even count how many loses i have had on 2 hands any more because i have also conceived and lost while clamped. One of those loses was a twin preg at 18weeks. Best of luck with your journey to have another baby. Cheers kiya

    Sorry for disappearing off the face of the earth but I had a few issues to deal with.

    Emm, I can hardly believe that you are 30 weeks already. I also would have wanted to knock their head in about getting a TL and the so called no side effects which we would all like to differ. I see that you are putting every one onto Westmead. I told you they were quite reasonable. LOL Maybe you should be their PR person.

    I hope to hear some good news from you all soon.

    I still have not got anywhere due to finances still be tight. I have promised myself if I get a tax return this year I will be getting it done.
