I (31F) recently underwent a bilateral salpingectomy and unilateral oophorectomy--AMA!
My short bio: Well, as the title says, I recently underwent a bilateral salpingectomy and unilateral oophorectomy. This means that both of my fallopian tubes and my left ovary were removed. In the beginning of February, I discovered I was pregnant, despite having an IUD. The embryo implanted in my left fimbria, though at the time of my IUD removal we could not see it in there. After the removal of my IUD, I began to bleed and it was thought that my situation would resolve itself, i.e. spontaneous abortion. However, my hCG levels continued to rise and though we still could not see the location of the embryo, my doctor decided to give me chemotherapy (methotrexate) to dissolve the pregnancy tissue. After the first round of chemo failed I was given a second, stronger round of it. I subsequently started shedding my hair pretty rapidly and decided to buzz it off. We thought all was well when my blood tests showed a decline in hCG, however, at my next appointment the embryo was still growing and my tube was now at risk for rupture. A 2" cyst had also formed on my ovary so the decision was made to remove both tubes and my left ovary last Thursday. I am now recovering at home--ask me anything.
My Proof: I've compiled an album of photos from the past several weeks.
