Welcome to ehealthforum,
The salpingectomy term is used for removal of fallopian tubes. You can discuss about your pregnancy plans with your gynecologist/obstetrician. If ovaries are intact and functional, and if you are having periodic ovulation, then ovulation can be induce to harvest eggs. These can be fertilized in-vitro with your partner’s sperms and placed back into your uterus (if uterus and cervix are intact). All the best.
Take care.
