Rio Bravo ReversalsTubal reversal done wrong

F Review updated:

I just discoverd 4 years later that a tubal reversal that was done on me in jan06 was not performed correctly. I have pictures of the sutures that were used and so you can only guess how the rest of my tubes looks. You see the white piece sticking out. Thats the sutures used

    I went to Rio Bravo for my tubal reversal in August 2020 . I had essure . The doctors were excellent. The nurses did a very good job taking care of me. I went to Rio Bravo alone and they made sure I was safe. The doctors and nurses listened to all of my concerns. The hospital was clean. My epidural was done perfectly. I highly recommend Rio Bravo. They treated me like family and I will always be grateful to them for their kindness. I have no complaints .

    I THE PERSON WHO WROTE THIS IS A HUGE LIAR AND COMPLAINS ABOUT EVERY THING IN THE WORLD. THIS IS A FAKE PAGE PEOPLE DO RESEARCH BEFORE YOU BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU SEE ON THE INTERNET. IF YOU HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE I NEED PROOF, IF YOUR DR SAID SOMETHING WAS WRONG UPLOAD THE PROOF. LIARS ARE TROLLING THE INTERNET ALL DAY EVERY DAY AND YOU CAN'T PLEASE EVERYONE NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO. SOME ARE NEVER SATISFY

    I had my reversal in Dec2012. I did not conceive so I did 2 HSG they both showed blocked tubes. Then I had a tubal reversal repair surgery Jan2017. My doctor showed me photos at my post OPP of my tubes before and after. The pictures showed that the stitching was all messed up and they used the wrong stitches. Rio Bravo Tubal Reversal is just a thief and a liar and they should be made to give us our money back for malpractice.

    I have been looking into this for years and this doctor seems to have prices that make it affordable. I would be nervous going by myself for this procedure. Does anyone know what test to do before hand and what questions to ask?? I have a TL almost 16 years ago and my HCG levels are still good from last blood work I had done. What is the actual success rate?? My tubes just had clamps put on, no cutting or burning of my tubes. If anyone can help me out on this before I make a final decision on where to get my TR done please email [email protected]
    Thank you...

    I just had mine done this year... So far morning I'm hoping and praying that we get blessed if we don't well it worth every penny knowing that my husband and I tried and did everything we could. I know we are in Gods eyes and he can see everything hopefully one day that stick shows two lines! If anyone out there wants to talk or have questions feel free to email me @ [email protected] i would really like to hear from
    Other so I don't feel alone. I lost hope since I've read about women getting pregnant right away but I need to stop because we are all different and when it's our time if it's going to happen it will 🙏🏼

    It is amazing to see all the success stories, it gives me hope. I also see a lot of bad experiences, although can't you have miscarriages and have a tubal pregnancy with any dr even in the U.S. ? I recall my mother always going to Mexico for dental work and never having a problem. I also see that they have a payment plan which many dr.'s don't provide unless they check your credit . I believe if it is God's will you will become pregnant regardless of where you go to have the procedure. If many woman are still going to him today and still have success stories than obviously he is doing something right. I plan on having my procedure done this coming year and I'm going to leave it in God's hands. Bless you all who are about to have or have already had the procedure done .

    We are fixing to go this month and I invite anyone that has positive or negative experiences to email me and my husband at [email protected] I need to hear from yall about what to expect because i am very nervous and yes, it's a gamble. I'm 36 and I know there are no guarantees. I lost a daughter a while back and I have to say that my heart goes out to the women that think they were wronged, but I felt I had to blame someone also... it's just the pain and bitterness that causes that honey. Over time, it will ease up... God has a plan for all of us and I'm feeling pretty positive about this trip... I already dreamt about our son, lol! So anyone with either experiences, please contact us... [email protected] my name is Leslie

    Hi there, I have just scheduled my TR for upcoming month of Feb 2016. Gods will everything is going to be okay. I call the doctor a lot and he does answer his phone and answers all the questions you have. Kathy is something else, SHE IS SO AWESOME! She does answer all you emails quickly. I have looking over this for 4 years now. I was married and wanted to have a child with him, God decided and we divorced. Now, I am married to a GODLY man I am sure this is what we both want. God is Good! Wish me Luck

    Hi, i had my tubes tied 5 yrs ago wen i had my 5th child. But i got separated 2 yrs ago and now tht i remarried i would like to get a reversal surgery because id like to give my husband a child of his own. He has a daughtr from a previous marriage but he cant see her because she lives out of the country. Ive mentioned my decision to my husband but hes not really in favor of me getting it because he thinks he wont be able to get me pregnant. I Really want this surgery. But im scared of a few things. The trip to rio bravo for me would be really the last thing id worry about since i live so close..about 2 hours away driving. But the violence in mx is wat im afraid of. Id like to know if there would be someone waiting for me on the other side wen i cross so they can take me to the clinic. I have so many questions. But id like to talk to someone before i even make an appointment my email is [email protected] thank u :)

    The post on 9th of Feb, 2014 by LA Maquina de Logica is 100% correct. She described everything we just experienced. My wife had a TR surgery on 3/9/2015 in Rio Bravo at Hospital de las Americas. We drove there and back from Mississippi, had a wonderful time, an excellent surgical experience, and all of it was thousands cheaper then here in the southern US. All together everything (passport cards, gas and food traveling there and back, one night hotel stay before, the shuttle from hotel to hospital before and after surgery, the surgery, and other expenses we had) cost us exactly $3, 760. Here in Mississippi it would of been atleast $6, 000. That's a lot for anyone to pay. To heck with insurance screwing everyone haha. I literally sold my truck to afford the surgery. And I work offshore!! So I know your struggle. But believe me... It IS safe. The doctors ARE amazing. I wholeheartedly recommend the doctors at Hospital de las Americas in Rio Bravo, Mexico to everyone wanting a tubal reversal. Feel free to email me at [email protected] with any questions you need answered. I want you to be blessed as much as we have been. God be with you.

    I am considering Dr Perez due to his good reviews and reasonable prices. I have 6 children from 2 previous relationships including a set of twins I conceived naturally but tired my tubes not because of how many children I have but because of the men I chose to have them with. I am now remarried and would love nothing more than to have my husband's child but my time is limited. I obviously have been very fertile in the past but I'm afraid I may get my hopes up for nothing

    I went to Rio Bravo in February 2012 and got pregnant exactly one year later and my precious miracle baby will be one on Sunday. These doctors gave me the chance to become pregnant again. When I had my surgery I went in with an open mind that it may or may not work. It's a chance, not a guarantee. I was treated with the utmost respect while I was there, I dont have a single bad thing to say about my experience. I'm from Missouri and THAT was a long way from home but it all worked out fine. As far as everyone talking about the cartels, well it's not like ur gonna be out mingling with them. You're having surgery and coming right back home in a couple days. Dr Perez is amazingat what he does and i will be forever grateful to that man for restoring my fertility and giving me the chance to feel a baby in my womb again.

    I went In 2007 it was a scary place that is for sure. It was not dirty but not clean like US hospitals. Had the procedure and it went ok. My husband watched the procedure. They used gloves and they put my tubes back together. I ended up with 5 cm on the L and only 3 cm on the R. The ride back to McAllen was scary. The lady driving was not a good driver. Came home and healed. 2 weeks after we left Rio Bravo the drug cartel came in and gunned innocent people down in the street. It is a VERY dangerous place to go. I have friends from Mexico and they asked if I was crazy to go there. The area IS run by drug cartels and they do kill people. All the people I work with (many from Mexico) warn others NOT to go to that area. If I were doing this all over again I would never go to This area of Mexico.
    We did get pregnant. One ended in miscarriage and one in a tubal pregnancy. I have nothing bad to say about the Dr's at all they were caring and the surgery worked as I got pregnant. 7 years later I have had to have a hysterectomy just because of carrying big babies and having vaginal births.
    Everyone do your homework. Only proceed if you are comfortable with everything. Like anything what is right for you is not right for others.

    I been a member of Rio Bravo patient forum since 2009, had my TR 2-2011 and our son is now 28 months old. Everyone will have their own opinion and that is fine, but this is why you should do your research BEFORE choosing ANY doctor, here or in another country. They ALL have good or not so good feedback. You should join a forum if they have one and follow it for awhile before making a decision as serious as this one.
