Q&A: What does having no distal portion of a tubal reversal mean?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

I had tubal reversal but did not work out so well. They told me I had no distal potion of tube L. What does that mean? does that mean they repaired my other tube?

They were unable to perform a tubal reversal on the left side because they didn’t have both parts of the tube to attach.  You will need to ask the surgeon if he was able to reconnect the right tube.  I would suggest that you undergo an X-ray procedure, called a hysterosalpingogram, to see if the right tube is open.
