I had a laparoscopy early September to remove both my tubes which are blocked by endometriosis to give the next cycle of ivf a chance to work. With my first cycle, the consultant found fluid had leaked into my uterus from the damaged tubes which probably prevented the embryo from implanting so suggested I had both tubes removed.
Had an hsg done a few weeks ago only to find the left tube still connected. The surgeon who operated on me said the tube was totally buried in adhesions with my bowel and was extremely difficult to locate. He cut something out which he thought could have been the tube but turned out not to be.
He said the options available to me are that I have radical bowel surgery done to separate the tube from my bowel resulting in a temporary stoma or I have a stent put in my tube_ a thing called Essure to block the tube which is basically a metal coil made of nickel, this procedure is usually used for sterilization but is relatively new with not such a great success rate. Has anyone heard of/tried this?
I'm at such a loss. Would really appreciate advice from anyone who has been in a similar situation. Thanks x
