I'm a 42 yr old female, that desire to become pregnant. I had a laparoscopic tubal ligation with fulguration of the tube 1.5 cm (bilateral) in Aug 1999, is it possible to get a tubal reversal?
Yes, if only 1 side: If the procedure is done because of infection/cancer on one side, then the other is open which can be used for harvest. If your procedure is done for purpose of birtn control (tuboligation), then you can't harvest the eggs---the gates are sealed! Tubal reversal usually cost 6-10 grands and success is not guaranteed. Consult your doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Maybe, maybe not: U can do a laparoscopic sterilization by cautery or clips or other ways, either way is old fashioned, the newer safer way that I do 99.9% of all my sterilizations on my patients is in office - adiana (for about another month, until I run out of catheters) or in office essure- both are easy, my pts stay awake, takes 5 minutes, no cutting, only miss 1/2 day of work, u can read about it online. ...Read more
WhenYourBodyTellsYou: Technically that operation is minimally invasive so you should bounce back pretty quickly. However, each individual is different. It took me a month to start bouncing back from a minor hernia repair. So wait a week or so then start slowly progressing and see how it goes each day. You'll know if you are careful. But don't push it hard for about a month. Just "listen to your body." It will tell you ...Read more
Does tubal test hurt? I am a virgin. I have an ovarian cyst so I will be undergoing laparoscopic procedure. They will also do the tubal test..
Tubal Test?: I believe you are referring a test to see if your fallopian tubes are patent (chromopertubation). If done during the laparoscopy you will be under anesthesia and you won't feel it. Obviously you will have some pain from the surgery. Are you trying to get pregnant? Don't see the need for it unless you have problems conceiving. ...Read more
I have severe right shoulder when breathing deep. Constant shoulder pain otherwise. Had laparoscopic cholecystectomy and tubal ligation 3 weeks ago.
I have a hard lump above my belly button that is tender and a little warm. I had a laparoscopic tubal ligation a week ago. Help?!
Maybe a suture but: Belly-button (umbilical) pain may originate locally due to infection or herniation, or be "referred" from another abdominal location like the appendix. Signs/symptoms of concern include: local redness &drainage, umbilical bulging that can't be reduced with gentle pressure, fever, vomiting, change in bowels, generalized abdominal tenderness (suggests peritonitis), worsening pain. Get checked pls. ...Read more
Probably: Bladder fulguration is done by electrocautery or laser therapy. Either way there is going to be pain. A saddle block may block the pain of the procedure but there will be pain afterward. YOu will need adequate pain meds following the procedure. You need to discuss this with the surgeon and make sure s/he is willing to manage your pain post op. ...Read more
Destruction: This is a process where a urologist will destroy and cauterize lesions within the bladder to treat visible lesions. These lesions may be causing problems such as bleeding or may be a small tumor or irregularity seen within the bladder with cystoscopy (a telescope used to look into the bladder). ...Read more
I have had a cystoscopy & fulguration done on 27/8/13 and am bleeding from bladder and rectum on and off with clots. Could this cancer again?
Do the anti-Tb drugs help to overcome a condition of persistent blood and pus in urine after fulguration?
Urinary TB: TB or tuberculosis most commonly affects the lungs but the renal system can also be involved. Certainly the usual TB meds should help, but if there is no response I suspect resistance to the drugs may be a problem. India is known for some TB resistance. That and given you still have real symptoms after a procedure means you should go back to the doc who did the procedure for further help. U need2 ...Read more
