At The Female Sterilisation Reversal Clinic, surgeon Mr Dobson believes that every women should have the choice and the opportunity to have a child if she desires. It is for this reason that he works so hard to provide each woman who comes to his clinic with the best possible sterilisation reversal possible. Yet, many women who have been sterilised and want children are reluctant to go through with the reversal procedure, because they have questions and fears about the procedure. By providing answers to these common questions, we hope that you will feel comfortable undergoing the procedure so that you can have the child you desire.
What Will the Surgery and Recovery Process Be Like?
The most common reason that women are reluctant to undergo the procedure is because they do not know much about it, and they fear that it could be a complicated surgery with a long and painful recovery process. This is however not the case with the female sterilisation reversal surgery. The surgery is a fairly quick procedure that generally takes an hour to complete. After the procedure, you will be kept in the hospital for up to 2 nights. While this is a low risk procedure, it is still best that you be kept under observation after the procedure in case you do develop a complication. With every surgery, there is a possibility that complications could develop; however, the main complication that can occur from this procedure is an infection at the site of the wound, which can be easily treated with antibiotics.
Once you are ready to leave the hospital, an over-the-counter painkiller taken for the first few days should be enough to deal with the pain. It is difficult to give an estimate on what the recovery process will be like, as every person’s body will respond different to the procedure. Generally however, for the first week it is recommended that you stay in bed, after that normal activities can be resumed with certain limitations (as per doctor instructions). Most women are fully healed and recovered from the procedure after a month.
What is the Likelihood of Success?
This is a common and understandable question that women have. They do not want to pay for the procedure and put their body through the process if it is not going to work. However, female sterilisation reversal has an extremely high success rate. Furthermore, Mr. Dobson has an even higher success rate than the average with 76% of his patients having a baby after undergoing the procedure.
With these questions addressed, we hope that you feel more confident going through with the process. With such a high success rate and such a small recovery time for this procedure, many women consider it worth a try in order to be able to finally have the child they have been wanting.
