The exact recovery time will depend on a number of factors. It’s important to follow post-surgical instructions from Viva Eve and your doctor, including taking it easy for the first few days after surgery and avoiding strenuous activity until your doctor gives you the OK. Patients should also be sure to take steps like moving their legs and getting up and down the stairs to help prevent DVT or deep vein thrombosis, which is when a blood clot forms in a deep part of the leg and can travel to the lungs and cause serious health issues.
A salpingectomy is a surgical procedure in which one or both fallopian tubes are removed. Your physician may recommend this treatment for a variety of gynecological reasons, including tubal disease, infections, or fertility problems like endometriosis. In addition, a salpingectomy can be used as an alternative to female sterilization, or tubal occlusion.
After a salpingectomy, it will be impossible to become pregnant naturally but you can still get pregnant via in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF involves collecting eggs from the ovary and then fertilizing them in a lab before implanting them into your uterus.
While you are recovering from a salpingectomy, it is important to discuss sexual intimacy with your partner. It’s also a good idea to try non-invasive forms of sexual intercourse, such as kissing and petting, before you progress to intercourse. The most important thing to remember is to listen to your body, and let pain be your guide. If an activity or position hurts, it’s a good idea to stop doing it until you feel better.
