That is what happened to me, the old dr I had years ago did a tubal ligation and he did it through a large vertical incision, and two years later he put them back together, which was a 6 hour operation. Since then is when I went through infertility with my new husband, and I got pregnat, but miscarried three times, all from adhesions. That is why I think so much of my gyn now. he did my sister's surgery Wednesday. he is great, I wish I would have known him back them, but he was too young, he is my age, and his practice is huge. Take care and please do not give up, I was told the same thing, there is only one surgeon that my gyn found that was willing to touch me too, and he told the gyn it WILL get worse, so at least there are a few out there who understand.
