This is the surgery I had. I too suffered with PTLS... I had my TR on 1-17-08, five years after my TL... I am 2 months out from surgery.. I FEEL great! My PTLS has improved soo much! My tube lengths are 3.5 and 5.
Call the doctor's office and ask for the pathology report on the tubes. You may have to call the hospital itself. My hospital is where my doctor is and they allow you to have access on line to all your medical files and I researced and looked over everything and came across the lab report. All tube specimens go to the lab for review. The lab would have recorded the lengths of the tubes it received and had to file it. It's worth a try if it will make you feel at ease.
IN fact that is the one I had - After my TR my lenghts are 5.5 & 5.0
I would send in your OP report for Dr. Berger to review and then they will let you know if he thinks you are a good canidate for TR. I think Dr. Berger is the most wonderful and talented Dr. IF there is a way to repair your tubes he is the man!!!!
Jenny H. I researched on the internet and I got that the word Salingectomy means removal of tube. So I'm guessing Bilateral Partial Salpingectomy, means partial removal of tube. Which is the Pomeroy technique. So I would look on Dr.Berger's web site under Pomeroy technique and it shows a diagram on what was done. But I would not take my word and maybe call one of the nurses at Dr. Berger's office and I'm sure they could tell you what it means.
I was under the understanding that I was having a LAPAROSCOPY and nothing in my phamplet states this type of procedure..
I just recieved my report and im worried .. THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS:::: I had a BILATERAL PARTIAL Salpingectomy, POMEROY TECHNIQUE...
Using Army-Navy retractors, the wound was retracted to teh patients right side where the RIGHT FALLOPIAN was swept into view and Grasped with a BABCOCK forceps.. The nuchal of tube was ligated with a free tie of 0 Chromic and the tube above the ligature was excised. The Proximal and Distal stumps were noted to be hemostatic..
then same procedure was done on Left side.
Anybody ever have this type of TL and can it be reversed??
I have PTLS and Im woundering if I would be able to have the surgery now....
