User Profile
Hi, i have a serious question, i had a laparotomy done Mar. 13, 2010, during the surgery the dr told me the cyst he went in to remove off of my right ovary was an abcess, then he went on to tell me that he removed lots of scar tissue off my tubes and he went on and said (i am not for sure which tube) he said that the tube was stuck together at the end, so he opened it by folding it open as if you were to fold your pant leg up. before surgery he treated me for pid. i want to have children and i need to get another doctors point of view.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you are planning for pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist or consider taking second opinion from another gynecologist. Further evaluation is needed to determine the fallopian tube patency, ovarian function, presence/absence of infections, further pelvic adhesions, and hormonal levels etc. If you have been trying for pregnancy and have not been successful, you should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up and monitoring as instructed. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. Monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen.
Take care.
