Sometimes, you think you’re done having children. And sometimes, life throws you a curveball you didn’t expect, and you realize you might, yes, want more children. For Christine Killinger, the longing for another child led her to the yellow pages, where she found the Women’s Institute.
She made many phone calls and booked many appointments before contacting us, looking for the right surgeon. Because tubal reanastamosis, or “untying” your tubes, is no small thing. You need a surgeon who understands what you’re going through, can make you feel comfortable and safe, and can also discuss the options and possible outcomes.
When we first met, I could tell Christine was nervous, but she knew what she wanted. We honestly discussed her options, which was about a 50 percent chance of success. Christine wanted to have as natural an experience as she could with future children. The surgery went well – we were able to do it laparoscopically, which left minimal scarring for Christine. Not only that, but within a few weeks, Christine was able to conceive!
We know decisions about your health and having children can be fraught with emotion, and we place a high regard on caring about our patients no matter what. I went to the hospital and visited Christine after she had both of her future little ones, because we formed an important relationship. I’m so grateful for the patients I’m able to help every day.
