||On the day of my second daughter Carmen’s birth, I had my tubes tied by my longstanding obstetrician. I was 22 and my Husband was 24 when we decided this and thought it was the right choice considering our very meager financial situation. After the procedure was complete, however, I immediately felt different and knew it was something we should have not done. I continued to push aside the longing to have another child for nearly 2 years until I could no longer endure the agony on my own. I bared my soul to my husband, who was at first very apprehensive about the issue, but after some thought and consideration, was truly supportive and wonderfully understanding.
I did some research on the reversal of a tubal ligation, which I wasn’t even sure was possible. I found many different web sites trying to recruit people in small clinics all around the United States. I spent many hours pouring over the material, and the pros and cons of in-vitro fertilization versus a tubal ligation reversal.
I even scheduled an appointment with an obstetrition, who told me that in his experience the tubal ligation procedure is tremendously costly and just doesn’t work. The ones he’d performed had all ended in miscarriage and there just wasn’t a good success rate at all. I was devastated. Finally when I thought all was lost, I found Forerunners Healthcare website. The sight was so sincere and the information was helpful and honest. I called right away and soon after had a telephone consult with Dr. Dheeraj Bojwani . He was magnificent. He was warm and friendly. He explained everything to me, and was very thorough and insightful. I scheduled my surgery soon afterward.
We packed and headed for India, Mumbai where we stayed in a Hotel. The Surgery went well, though I did have a lot of scar tissue from prior C-sections, which made the repair of my tubes very difficult. Surgeon did a superb job and didn’t give up even in the face of adversity. My husband was worried, but surgeon gave him lots of information and made him feel a lot better. He was very supportive to both of us and my husband was especially impressed with surgeon’s bedside manner and the way he was treated like an important part of the process. I recovered very quickly and was even doing some sightseeing and shopping the day after surgery.
When we returned home to Germany, we were very optimistic. Dr. Dheeraj Bojwani made routine calls to check on us and we e-mailed regularly back and fourth. I never failed to receive answers to my questions in a timely manner. He gave us tips and helpful hints on how best to conceive. On October 12th I found out I was pregnant. It was such an exciting and surprising moment. We had never imagined it could happen so soon.
At first there was some concern that I could have a tubal (ectopic) pregnancy, because I was having pain in my left side. Dr. Dheeraj Bojwani gave me so much support and encouragement. I had an ultrasound per his request and everything was fine. It turned out to be a large cyst in my ovary. My pregnancy went well and was rather uneventful. I stayed healthy and the baby was quite an active reminder that this truly was a miracle in the making. Every day I never fail to thank God for this marvelous man and the miraculous work he is doing, giving women a second chance.
