Please ask the doc: Who is doing it as that doc should be able to give you odds.

Many factors: Your chances are based on several factors, including your prior fertility, the tubal status after repair as well as presence of any male factor fertility issues. The biggest factor is age of the female partner. At age 48, your fertility declines significantly making it very difficult to conceive spontaneously even if you had not had a prior tubal ligation. Please see a fertility specialist.

40% to 85%.: But it depends on several factors: the best candidates for tubal reversal are women younger than age 40 who had sterilization surgery immediately following childbirth. Have you considered adopting? Probably cheaper, and the success rate is 100%! and you would be doing a good thing. A very good thing.
