Can laproscopy unblock my tubes and what does proximal obstruction mean are my tubes totally blocked?
Possibly : If adhesions are causing the blockage then laparoscopy can take those down. Adhesion can, however, come back but less likely if done with laparoscopically. Proximal refers to near the origin of structure ( as oppose to distal, away from the origin of the structure). In terms of total blockage, i can't help u as this can only be determined by ur gyn with imaging. Good luck. ...Read more
Fallopian tubes: Fallopian tubes are paired tubular structures, right and left, that connect the uterus to the pelvic cavity. The tube picks up an egg (oocyte) after ovulation at its far end and transports it down towards the uterus. If the woman had intercourse sperm swims through the uterus into the tube at the near end, when conception occurs it is in the mid-portion of the tube. ...Read more
Tubes blocked: Fallopian tubes can be blocked because of previous pelvic infections, history of abdominal or pelvic surgery, endometriosis and other pelvic conditions. Sometimes slight blockages will go away after a test called hysterosalpingogram is performed. But otherwise, surgery to repair the tubes or in-vitro fertilization can be considered if pregnancy is desired. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
? past infection: There are many types of ovarian cysts. Sticking uterus is a general, non-specific, gross description. As a result, the answer can only be speculative.

Usually None: Blocked tubes usually don't cause any symptoms. The only way to find out if a tube is blocked without surgery is to have an hsg, a type of radiologic exam where the uterus and tubes are filled with dye. Prior surgery, endometriosis and sexually transmitted infections can put you at higher risk. ...Read more
Need to unblock: Not sure of the question. A blocked ureter should be unblocked. Depends on the disease causing the problem. Can be something outside the ureter-extrinsic like a bowel disease or scarring, or inside the ureter-intrinsic like a stone or blood clot, etc. Until a definitive treatment is done a tube can be placed in the kidney or the ureter. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had my right Fallopian tube removed due to ectopic prego
The doc says my left tube swollen
what can cause my tube to swell?
Should I b worried?
No need to worry now: If you have no abdominal/pelvic pain and no fever, the swelling of your left tube will probably resolve spontaneously unless an infection was known or diagnosed. Since the cause of ectopic pregnancy is usually unclear although often attributed to a tubal anomaly, malfunction or infection, you are at risk for another ectopic and will need to have an early pelvic sonogram once you get pregnant again ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Infection, scarring?: A swollen fallopian tube can be from an infection, including sexually transmitted disease, or from blockage of the end of the tube causing fluid to accumulate in the tube (hydrosalpinx). This can be due to scarring for infection or possibly endometriosis or prior surgery. It depends on what the doctor means by "swollen tube". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Do u think my surgeon can unblock my blocked fallopian tube. my right tube swollen and totally blocked and my right tube partially blocked . pls help?
Depends: My understanding is that sometimes the tubes can be unblocked, it depends on what is blocking them. Sometimes when something is pushing on them from the outside that can be moved or removed, allowing the tube to open. Since we have IVF these days, it is not clear if it is best to take the tubes out. I have heard when a tube is unblocked it may close back up within months. Your surgeon may know ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If one of my fallopian tubes are swollen is it a gurantee the other will get swollen? I don't have stds.
No: Having damage or swelling in one fallopian tube does not necessarily mean that you have a problem with the other tube. Looks like you had a baby about 4 months ago so at least one tube is working fine. Congratulations! ...Read more
Swollen fallopian tube. My doctor told me it could be random swelling that will resolve on its own. He didn't do any tests. Is this normal?
How diagnosed?: It is not clear what is meant by the term “swollen tube.” You may be referring to a hydrosalpinx that could have been seen on sonogram. This could be further evaluate by surgical removal, hysterosalpingogram or reevaluation in a few months depending on the clinical circumstances. “Swollen tube” could refer to pelvic inflammatory disorder. If so STD testing & antibiotics are needed ...Read more
Was told that I have swollen fallopian tubes. What exactly does this mean. Never had an STD so how did it happen? What treatments exist for it?
Swollen or closed?: Your fallopian tubes can get "swollen" or blocked from endometriosis. Also, chlamydia, a common cause of swollen tubes does not always have symptoms. If your tubes are swollen, but not blocked, you are at risk for a pregnancy in your tubes, which is a life threatening situation. You do not have to treat it unless you want to get pregnant. You will need to see a fertility specialist. ...Read more
Been told by a doctor that I have got two swollen fallopian tubes and trying to concieve. Is there anything i can do apart from ivf?
Surgery poor choice: Surgery for hydrosalpinx has a low success rate. The delivery rate is commonly about 20% over 12-24 months whereas, ivf can be as high as 60-70% from a single cycle. Tubal occlusion is as effective as removing the tubes. I have seen some women have a serious drop in egg number after removal of tubes. You do have a choice but often not a good one. Ivf is safe too. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Embryologic remnant: Certain para-tubal cysts are embryologic remnants, in other words 'leftover stuff' from when the woman was in utero and her pelvic organs were forming. Males and females embryos both start with 2 sets of internal ducts: one is intended to develop in males and the other in females. Leftovers from either duct can be present as cysts near the fallopian tube. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
