Hi

I had this surgery done last Wednesday. I had Hydrosalpinx in one tube which I was told was some kind of liquid in the tube causing it to be damaged. Luckily my other tube is fine and they only needed to take out the one.

I was told earlier on in the year by the consultant at the fertility clinic that having one tube doesn’t necessarily reduce your chances of conceiving to 50% as the other tube overcompensates and picks up the eggs coming down each month. Luckily I had nothing else wrong just a small cyst on my ovary which they drained so I was told I “should” be able to conceive naturally but we have a follow up appointment in April to discuss the next options.

The surgery itself was ok, they did keyhole and made 3 tiny incisions and nearly a week after surgery there healing well.

My one bit of advice would be to rest after surgery, i stayed in bed just one day after and wished I’d rested more as I’ve been so tired the past few days. Also ask as many questions you can with your consultant and make sure your fully aware of what there doing and why and the implications and any info you want to know don’t be afraid to ask

Sorry for the long post 🙈🙈 good luck with everything and if you want to know anything just ask xxx

Hi Lexigrace,

I had one of my tubes removed in 2010. Then suffered a ectopic pregnancy in 2015 in the other tube. At the time I requested that the doctor not remove my last tube, just the foetus.

I decided to have ivf last year so had to have my fibroids and one and half tubes removed, last June. Now I have no Fallopian tubes. Before last June I had already dealt with the lost of my baby and fertility, so now that I’m post surgery it hasn’t been difficult to deal with the removal of my tubes.

What I’m basically saying is whatever comes your way, you’ll be able to deal with it in time. It’s not easy but it can be done.

I hope they can remove the blockage and you retain both tubes.

Good luck.

I had both my tubes removed so IVF could be successful. One of the best decisions that I made. Good luck and prayers for a successful surgery

I was stressed and tearful beyond belief when I found out. I had both my tubes removed so IVF could be successful. Sadly for me it wasn't though. I hope they can unblock your tube for you. At least ask them to make sure you keep 1 tube if possible. That way you can still naturally try for your miracle. They said they were going to initially 'clip' both of mine but when I came out of surgery I heard they had removed both. Just insist that they don't remove both unless it is really necessary.... if that makes sense. Otherwise you end up waiting for ivf from one month to the next with no other options. I think age makes a difference as well. I had my tubes removed before my 40th. Wishing you all the best. I didn't have too much pain after surgery that I could remember, but I did rest up in bed, do very little and didn't rush back to work. Keyhole wasn't as bad as I thought. Still plenty of people go on to have a baby with one tube. Best wishes xx

I had an aunt who only has one tube - she had the other removed. She has 2 boys and 2 girls. All with one tube. So please don’t worry!!

I've had both of my tubes removed due to hydrosalpinx both sides. I couldn't progress to ivf without the surgery x we are so blessed now with our little boy.

Wishing you a speedy recovery and hoping they have save your tube x
