i don't personally know what's involved in the procedure but I think an internet search would help you out.

The procedure is called 'tubal ligation reversal' , so just type that in and you should get a heap of different websites that will explain it all. Here's one website link that gives you alot of info.


good luck

Hi there,
I had my tubes tied in 1989 I had the reversal done in 1999 the cost was as painful as the surgery. I paid 5000.00 which had to be paid up front. Not covered by insurance. I had the surgery which they did an incision like a c-section its major surgery. 3 days in the hospital and 6 weeks recover time. 1 year latier I got pregnant results was a etopic pregancy. I had so many test done I had artificial insemiation. I went to specialist and they said there was noway I would get pregnant again and if I did the chances of another etopic was high. Well I gave up. Well I got pregnant in dec. 2002 I gave bith to a healthy baby boy. I went through alot to get him alot of pain from surgeries the etopic surgery was major as well same thing as the reversal was 3 days in the hospital and 6 weeks recovery it was worth it. My doctors told me he was a mircle baby. But I think all babies are works of mircles. I hope that this has helped you in some way. I would like to keep in touch with you. I was 41 when I had my baby. So you still have time.
