I'm 41, soon to be 42 in a few weeks and am having my tubal ligation reversed next week if it is possible. I have never had or wanted kids. I had my tubes tied 2 years ago and the surgeon who did it will do an exploratory laparascopy to see if they can be reconnected. If so he will proceed with the laparotomy and tubal reversal.
I was in a bad marriage for 11 years and have been divorced for a year. My fiancee is 13 years younger than I and wants kids. Changes in my life have led me to reconsider parenthood so I have decided to go for it. If God has a child in his plan for me then I will be grateful for him or her. If not to then I will be ok with that too. Either way I am ready for the experience.
It's been a long stressful haul to get to this point where the surgery is a reality and I would be lying if I said I wasn't still inwardly struggling with my choice. Kids and parenthood have never been on my radar so every thought surrounding pregnancy and family is new and slightly terrifying.
So, on I the 2nd of January I will not know the outcome of the surgery until I wake up. Meanwhile I'd love to bounce some thoughts and fears off of anyone who'd like to share my journey.
momto3brazils, thanks for your reply. That's encouraging news for me! The Dr. cauterized my tubes so we're not sure if there will be enough left to reconnect.
How long was it between your tubal and the reversal (years?). Also how long did it take for you to get pregnant after the reversal?
