Re: Shrinking adhesions?

Dear Newcomer,

I was diagnosed with chronic adhesions that had 'wrapped' themselves around my fallopian tubes and were making them adhere to the outside of my uterus and all sorts of horrible things. I was told I could never have children, and perhaps IVF could help. IVF couldn't and wouldn't help because they too went in and had a look and found me full of adhesions as well.

Well, fast track a few years, new hubby and lo and behold... I'm pregnant! (ooo .. miracles do happen) .. fast track a few more years, 3 kids later, and I'm at a new gyno's rooms saying "tie my tubes, tie my tubes, no more babies pelase" .. so he went in to tie my tubes and found ................

No adhesions. None

Nothing ............................. Shrinkage? Disappeared? Misdiagnosis? Bad doctors from earlier? Who knows ..... but it does happen and I'm not the only person to have a similar story, although those who are 'fixed' rarely come on and say anything.

So anything is possible ... but do keep us updated.
