Bilateral fimbriectomy, coagulated tubes, have severe pain on one side, advised entire tube removal. Side effects of having a salpingectomy on one side?

What are the side effects of having a salpingectomy on one side? I had a bilateral fimbriectomy two years ago and the ends of my tubes were coagulated also. Approx 2.5 cm were removed from each side. I have been having severe pain on the right side since a month after the surgery and my doctor is going to do an ultrasound and said that he may have to remove the entire tube to hep the pain to go away. he said that he would give more details after the ultrasound but I am worried that another surgery is only going to cause more pain.

Hello and welcome to HCM,

This is not an unusual issue and happens many times after fimbriectomy or after tubal ligation surgery.

The fluid collects in the tube and as it cannot escape from the fimbriae the tube swells and forms a hydrosalpinx or fluid filled tube. This causes pain.

This is seen in ultrasound. If the tube is swollen it is better to remove it as it will ease off the pain. There is no need to remove the ovaries if they are normal. removing the tube does not have any effect on female physiology. So do not worry. Also ask the doctor to check for the opposite tube if it is normal or not. As sometimes the hydrosalpinx is on both sides.

Do not worry. These are routine surgeries.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
