First I would like to Thank Dr. Levin for everything! It is hard to put into words the gratitude I feel.
My husband and I met when we were in college and fell in love right away. After only 1 ½ years of dating, our first little girl was born. She was not planned, but welcomed with joy. Shortly after, 12 ½ months to be exact.our second little girl was born. Again, not planned, but welcomed with joy. However, Jeremy (my husband) was only 23 and I was only 21 and we were both still trying to finish college, work and raise a family. Both of my pregnancies were extremely difficult due to a uterine abnormality and I spent countless nights in the hospital trying to stop pre-term labor. Both of my pregnancies were spent on bed rest for the majority of the time with exception of school and taking care of my older daughter during pregnancy #2. We decided before our second daughter was born that we had too much on our plate and we didn't think we could handle anymore. And I wasn't sure I would be able to handle another difficult pregnancy, it was emotionally draining. Since we knew I would be having a c-section, a tubal ligation was scheduled for the same time (2001).
At first, it seemed almost a relief knowing I couldn't get pregnant again. But, that only lasted about 1 year. By the time my youngest daughter turned 2 years old, I ached for another baby and began talking to my husband about our options. At that time, we decided against looking into the possibility of a reversal and decided to " count our blessings" with the miracles God had given us. Although we came to this conclusion, something in my heart wasn't satisfied and the idea of having another baby kept taunting me.
I began to research tubal ligation reversals in my spare time and before I knew it, it became an obsession. I found myself reading website after website and requesting information from many different doctors. Dr. Levin kept coming to the top of my list. However, we decided again that we were going to put it on the backburner. Right when I was about to put my research away in the file drawer, my aunt comes back from Kentucky with a true to life testimonial of Dr. Levin. That made up my mind right then and there and I began the "fast track" process.
On May 5th, 2008 we flew out to Kentucky from Minnesota for my reversal surgery. Dr. Levin and his entire staff were awesome. There is no other way to put it. They made me feel so confident and comfortable during the entire procedure and after. Dr. Levin told me that my tubes went back together like "new" and that we shouldn't have any problems conceiving but that we should wait for 6 weeks to let everything heal before we start trying. We began trying in the end of June and conceived our little miracle on July 5th, 2009. I emailed Dr. Levin and told him I had a positive pregnancy test and he ordered the tests at my local Doctor's office. Dr. Levin monitored my test results to make sure the hormone levels were as they should be. Dr. Levin continued to monitor my levels until we had our first ultrasound and I let him know that everything was okay. Thanks to the gift God gave Dr. Levin, we added another beautiful baby girl to our family on February 21st, 2009 . During my c-section, I asked my OB how my tubes looked.she said, "Like they were never apart".
I once again had an extremely difficult pregnancy and our little girl was born 5 weeks early, but she is healthy and happy and growing strong.
If you are considering a tubal reversal, I urge you to look no further than Dr. Levin. It would be a huge waste of your time and money to consider anyone but Dr. Levin for this procedure. I truly believe that the Lord has blessed Dr. Levin with a gift. I will forever be grateful for Dr. Levin and his staff.
