Is there any pain involved in a salpingectomy?

Tolerable: Most patients have this done laparoscopically (small incisions via a thin 5 mm camera) and go home right away. They feel sore and return to work/school after 24 hours. Often the gas (co2) causes more discomfort and women feel shoulder pain (referred pain from the gas irritating your diaphragm) and body soreness. Tylenol (acetaminophen) & advil usually works but have Codeine as a back-up just in case. ...Read more

Oophorec/salpingectomy surgery risk, can you tell me?

Surgery risk: This surgery isn't particularly risky but it depends entirely on who is being operated on. For example if a woman weighs 300 pounds, has a history of blood clots and has had several previous surgeries in the pelvis, risks would be quite a bit higher than a woman of normal weight, young and healthy with no history of previous surgeries. ...Read more

Will ovulation still occur alternately after a salpingectomy or will ovulation be more likely to happen only on the side with the remaining tube?

Will ovulation still occur alternately after a salpingectomy or will ovulation be more likely to happen only on the side with the remaining tube?

Still alternate: Even after removing one tube, ovulation will continue to occur from each ovary. It will not be more likely from the ovary that still has the tube. So a woman with one tube gone but both ovaries will usually take longer to conceive, since she only has a chance to conceive when ovulation occurs in the ovary that has a tube next to it. ...Read more

Had IVF transfer done on October 30, came back pos.then went to neg. Had laparoscopic left salpingectomy dec 1, path came back as not ectopic.
?

Not ectopic: I'm guessing you had some concerning symptoms for your doctor to recommend laparoscopy even after your pregnancy hormone levels went negative. Was the tube abnormal looking on ultrasound? It sounds like it may have been a "chemical pregnancy" or a "tubal abortion", both of which will resolve without intervention in most cases. Good luck with your efforts. ...Read more
