Dear Dr. Levin. I am here to tell you and anyone else that is considering having the tubial reversal my husband and I spent time researching and trying to figure out if this was the best for us considering I have two children already that he loves dearly. There was many nights after Tim got home from work and we spent countless hours discussing this. After our first consultation with Dr. Levin over the phone we felt that he answered every question that we had to ask. My husband and I spent the next two weeks deciding what we should do and finally came to a conclusion that we were going to have it done.

The experience at the hospital was very comfortable and they made sure that if there was any other questions we had and again explained the procedure to us one more time. The reversal was pretty much painless and the nurses in the recovery took excellent care of me. There was no better feeling being able to see my husband when I woke up and to see him smiling at me. My husband did say that the waiting was unbearable but it was well worth it.

The hotel accommodations were great and close to the hospital with plenty of things to do before the day of the operation was to be done. The best thing about the operation was being able to rest with my husband in the quiet hotel and knowing that he was comfortable and the privacy the hotel gave us both. The one on one consult we had with Dr. Levin the morning after surgery gave us both a sigh of relief when Dr. Levin informed us that the healing process is going just prefect and if we had anymore questions for him.

The ride home was tough since we didn't fly and those rough roads were almost unbearable. We listened to the advice that Dr. Levin gave my husband and I and after six weeks of my husband and my daughters taking care of me we decided it was time to start trying. About sixteen weeks after the operation I was so happy to find out that I was having a baby. The look on my husband face was priceless and he was so happy since it was his first. Eight months and three weeks later I was happy to send Dr. Levin the big news that changed both of our lives on March 28th 2011.

Our little son was born and we have no one to thank more than Dr. Levin for making this happen. I would strongly recommend Dr. Levin to anyone that has ever thought of having a tubial reversal. Thanks to all the staff at Dr. Levin's office and for all the help along the way. Thanks so much words can't express enough.
