“I had my tubes reversed for PTLS symptoms and we now have another precious child.”
Posted 13th October, 2012
I sought to have my tubes untied after coming to realize that I had Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome, with symptoms including extreme irritability, inter-cycle bleeding, 2 week migraines, and increased acne. These were so definitively related to having my tubes tied, and I felt like a totally different person.
Within a month after my reversal, I felt 90% better, and within months I felt back to my normal self. My cycle returned to normal, no more inter-cycle bleeding, my migraines were reduced to one day instead of 2 weeks, and the irritability was drastically reduced–life was different!
For icing on the cake, although I had my tubes reversed in hopes of alleviating the PTLS symptoms, we now have another precious child, and what an amazing thought to think there was this huge blessing we received!! Going to Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center was a completely positive experience with Dr. Berger, the staff and the excellent facilities.
What can we say to explain our thankfulness? We believe God led us to CHTRC and that Dr. Berger was an enormous part of the precious gift of our daughter. We cannot imagine not having this precious person, and to think–my body was restored to have her! It’s such a gift. Thank you so much Dr. Berger and staff for your commitments to life!
I feel better as a woman, and we have another life to celebrate! May God bless you all.
