It was for permanent birth control. My doctor prefers to remove the tubes instead of tying them. Three incisions. The only one that hurts is the one by the belly button. She had to put extra stitches because of oozing. Other then that everything was fine. She did notice my liver was enlarged, but I guess that is a different topic. She ran blood work, it all came back normal.
