Reversal news!

Woohoo! DH and I have a reversal date! The earliest we can get in is 7 weeks from now, which puts us in January and about 5 days from our cruise for his 30th. So, we are definitely waiting until we return from vacation. Jan 29th the surgery is scheduled--so excited! The doctor said it could be as early as 3 weeks post surgery for viable sperm, but more likely 3-6 months. Either way, I'm on cloud 9 right now because I finally feel like we are getting closer!

Thank you, girls! We are so excited! We haven't told our families (minus my sister) that we are doing this because we want it to be a huge surprise, so I LOVE having you ladies to talk to!

Thank you! We are sooooo excited!!!


@Kelly, I was so worried leading up to everything that a reversal wouldn't be possible. DH's original urologist really tried to push us to IVF. But after getting more opinions, it is totally possible! Especially if there is less than 8 years between vasectomy and reversal, the stats are really high! Apparently there are 2 types of reversals, one has a greater than 90% change of success, the other is about 60%. Unfortunately, it isn't possible to know which kind of reversal is done until the surger is happening and they check out scar tissue and things. If one side is able to get the more successful kind done, and the other side gets the less successful, it still works out to like a 75% chance of success.
