I had a tubal ligation done 7 months ago during the birth of my 4th child through my 4th c-section. The dr. said he removed " a tiny part of the narrowing of the tube closest to the uterus". I am assuming that is the isthmic part of the tube. I have been having regret lately about it and not sure if I would really undergo tubal reversal surgery after already having 4 sections and a ligation, not to mention I am 39 years old. My dr. gave me the stat of 1-2/1000 failing. That sounds so much lower than anything I've read. What is your opinion on the failure rate? Wishful thinking I hoping I suppose. Thank you.
