Hi!
I must admit I don't completely understand all of your question, but here is what I would tell a patient of my own:  From the what you are telling me about the report, your tubes are fairly badly damaged.  In this circumstance, I have had the best results when I have referred my patients for IVF.  Because you do have a tube that is partially open, it might be possible to repair it and/or the other tube using microsurgical techniques.  Your best option for that is to go with a fertility specialist.  Fertility surgery is usually not covered by insurance, and IVF is  also not usually a covered benefit.  There are many pros and cons to both approaches, but your best bet is to discuss the case with the doctor who did your dye test.
Good luck!
