Have you had a tubal ligation but now regret that decision and want to have the procedure reversed? A tubal ligation reversal is surgical procedure, for women, in which their fallopian tubes are “tied off” so that she does not become pregnant. Many women come to regret their decision to have a tubal ligation and want to try and reverse the procedure so that they can get pregnant again.
How much does a tubal ligation cost? According to Lakeshore Tubal Reversal Center, you can have a outpatient tubal reversal procedure done for six thousand and nine hundred dollars. The cost includes the following: lab work, pre-operative and post operative medications, surgical fees, doctor’s fees, anesthesia and a two night hotel stay in a local hotel. You should contact your insurance company to see if they will help to pay for some of the medical expenses that are associated with the procedure; this way you can be reimbursed after the procedure.
A tubal reversal is a simple procedure; the doctors start by making a small incision (1 ½ to 2”) above the pubic hair line. Then, they reconnect the ends of the fallopian tubes and remove the scar tissue. The procedure takes between an hour and a half and two hours, depending on how difficulty of the case, as each procedure is different. Patients usually do not experience a lot of pain after their reversal; most people feel back to normal in about three to four days. Patients are told to not do any strenuous activities (lifting anything over 15 pounds) for two to three weeks after surgery. You need to make sure that you do what is best for you since every patient heals according to their own schedule.
