Our expert says:
The success of tubal reconstructive surgery depends entirely on the grade or severity of the damage in the first place. In mild forms of tubal obstruction reversal can be extremely successful, in the order of 60%. However, in more advanced cases unfortunately, the success rate can be less than 10%. Therefore, I suggest you discuss this with your gynaecologist before proceeding. Also, you need to do a careful cost benefit analysis including time off from work and the cost to your medical aid or out of pocket against the cost of in vitro fertilisation, which would be your most logical option.
