Hi again Karla,

I have had a fair amount of surgeries, but the ones years ago caused infertilty, and 3 misscarriages. When I was 23, a dr ties my tubes too young, did not even question me. I had a c section 2 years before that.

Then I meant my hisband, and I went through 6 hours of surgery to put them bac together. Back the drs never talked about scar tissue.

I was okay after having all tohose misscarriages, we gave up my periods were terrible, I was always in bed two days.

I found a new dr 7 years ago, and he finally did a lap. Then a laparotomy to remove uterus and one ovary. Fibroids and cysts. Was okay for 4 years, when I went back 2 years ago complaining of pain again, he schules lap possible laparotmoy. He was in there 10 minutes and told my husband I had to go in. He removed the last ovary. It got worse so he did a lpa in august and scheduled another laparotomy am\ month later. Only 5 months after the first surgery.

I have had over the years 7 laparotomies and 2 laparoscopy. I think very him. We will do the right thing I hope when the time comes, but he does know a general surgeon that will work with him..He knows I want him involved in the next surgery! Sorry so long, sort of lonely tonight .
