That's great to hear!!
That's great to hear!!
Thanks so much for sharing your journey... I know the VR is a real risk and it is on mind that possibly IVF best way... Would you mind sharing who you went through for the IVF process? I think I need more info on it to make an informed choice. :-)
Also, someone suggested we could go Overseas for a VR for much cheaper - wonder if anyone knows about that??
I came across Dr Wilson who runs a clinic in America, if you google his name and reversal clinic, lots of info will come up, he currently charges $1800 US and does the microsurgical reversal. I daydreamed about a big holiday to Disneyland, and my partner getting the op done while there lol.
Also look up Urologist's and ph them all, their secretary will give you their info on costs etc. There are a lot more around that do the same operation as Dr Lekich and Dr Woolcott, look up Dr Eric Chung he is very reasonable, does micro surgery, Dr Charles Chabert receptionist was really helpful and he does the same surgery.
I have seen some go the ICSI/IVF route and they haven't been successful for the first few goes, the issue with going that way before trying the VR is any damage the ICSI may cause to an area, that was what made us decide to try the VR first, I started another thread on here back when I was confused as to which way to go, which was a great help.
At least with having the VR if we need too, we could have a second option of going to I've/ICSI,if it is unsuccessful, but if we had have gone that way first and it didn't work and further scarring and damage was done then we wouldn't have the option of doing a VR.
We (DF) went in for VR yesterday, we have a post op check in 4 weeks but I believe first sperm count is at 10 weeks. Apparently he had "great distal and proximal flow, no scarring or blockages" so now it's just a waiting game! 😊
Thanks dream girl, I definitely will
Hi girls! Just came across this thread and thought I'd ask for an update on your situations? Hoping to hear some great success stories! My OH had a successful reversal after 15 years, we've tried naturally for 11 months and have now been referred to a fertility clinic I'm excited but nervous to get the ball rolling! x
How exciting onedaymaybebaby! FX for some great results in a months time! After a lot of research we went with Dr Woolcott, after 15 years we really needed all the expertise we could get as we didn't want to leave anything to chance. He was FANTASTIC and OH has a count of 15 million which we are so please about! Make sure when they do the SA they do a full screen, for some reason they only did count with us, not motility, morphology or antibodies, so although we have 15 million they may all be swimming in circles! But we'll have that sorted with our next SA at the FS
