Brief Answer:
Salpingostomy can be done with partial removal.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.

If one of the fallopian tubes was completely removed, tubal reconstruction may often be complicated. If partial removal was done, salpingostomy or re-anastomosis of the remaining part of the tube to the uterus can be done.

I will be able to comment further if you can provide me some feed back about the mode of treatment, the time interval until now, and any postoperative significant happenings.

Hope I have clarified your query. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.

I just had a blood test and the nurse who did it said it was unusual to see. Is this something I should get looked at?
