I got my tubes reversed by Dr. Greene on June 7,2007. Me and my husband had already had 4 kids and he wanted one more. So we searched for a good Doctor and we found Dr. Greene. The surgery went well and we went straight home to start working on our next baby. On August 3, 2008 I found out that I was pregnant. We were so excited but our joy ended fast. On August 5, 2008 I had a miscarriage. I was so devastated. But my husband keep my spirits up and said baby lets not give up. So we kept trying. On May 9, 2009, I found out I was pregnant again. We was so excited to hear that news again. We went to the doctor and the checked my HCG count. It was a good number. We came back 3 days later and it doubled!!! But our excitement ending fast again. I begin to have pain in my stomach, enough to make me go into the hospital. I prayed that this was not another miscarriage, but it was. I found out that my stomach was filling up with blood and that I had been carrying my pregnancy in my left ovary and it burst. I was in tears. Not only did I loose another baby but I now only have one ovary. I could not take it anymore and I was done trying. A few months had past and in August 2009, I picked up my phone and called Lakeshore Surgical Center and asked to speak to my nurse Sharon. Sharon told me not to give up. That she understood how hard this was for me. I hung up the phone with Sharon and I felt better. 2 Days later I begin to feel funny. I went to my husband and said something is not right. I told him that I had this same feeling when I was pregnant with our other kids. He rushed out to buy me a test. It was POSITIVE. I could not believe it. It had only been 3 months since I had my ovary removed. I had my baby girl on April 9, 2010. She was 5lbs 15oz and 19in. She was beautiful. So I'm here to tell you if it don't happen when you want it to, don't give up!!! Thank you Dr Greene for what you have done for me and my family!!!!

Our Policy on Testimonials
We do not ever release patient′s names. We feel you should have control over your medical decisions and information. We want you to know that we will never ask that of you. The tubal ligation reversal testimonials on our website are the words of the patients themselves we don′t change them except when they name their husband or something else that would give away their identity. In 32 years of surgery I have had a lot of patients that were kind enough to write a note of thanks and I never have had any message that was more than several sentences. People just don′t write long involved notes like I see on some websites.
