Tubal Reversal?

I just had a tubal ligation done 5 weeks ago and I have been having a lot of strange symptoms to the point where I am ready to schedule an appt. to see what's wrong with me. Well I looked up PTLS symptoms and a lot of the one's listed are my symptoms.

Here is a link to the list:

If you were having these problems would you go through all the hassle of taking meds for the hormone change and stuff or get the tubal reversed?

I was wandering how much does a tubal reversal cost and does insurance cover it? Please give your opinions! Sharing your experiences with PTLS would help also. Thanks!

  • Whether an insurance company will cover the cost of a tubal reversal varies among different carriers. Some insurance companies may cover all or part of the cost of tubal ligation reversal, although most do not.

    To find out if you may be eligible for reimbursement, provide your insurance company with the diagnosis and procedure codes. The diagnosis code (ICD-9) for bilateral tubal occlusion is 628.2. The procedure code (CPT) for tubal anastomosis is 58750.

    Costs of Reversing Tubal Ligation
    Estimated Tubal Reversal Costs:
    Surgical Fees
    Surgeon’s Fee $3,000
    (including assistant surgeon)
    Anesthesia Charge $800
    Facility Fees $2,400

    Total Estimated Fees $6,200*
