In a successful effort of reversal of the sterilisation process,a 24-year-old woman is overjoyed to have conceived again,who is now looking forward to the birth of a child.
Noted sterilisation expert Dr Lalit Mohan Pandit managed to reverse the tubectomy procedure conducted on Uma Chauhan,within a couple of hours of sterilising her at the Maheshwar community health centre,100 km from here.
Dr Pant said that in normal circumstances,such reversal operations are conducted at least 6-8 weeks of sterilisation,but in case of Uma,he was asked to reverse her tubectomy after just half-an-hour of performing it on February 12,earlier this year,because her 21-day old daughter had passed away. However,the woman wanted a child again.
Now,Uma is pregnant again and she and her husband,who already have a two-year-old son,hope that they are blessed with a girl child this time.
“I have performed almost three lakh sterilisation procedures in the last 30 years,but I was never asked to reverse any of it so soon”,Pant said.
“More so,in this remote health centre,there were no specific instruments and facilities available to conduct the surgery”,he said.
However,the senior government surgeon,with the help of the instruments available at the centre,managed to reopen the fallopian tubes of the woman. Later on,certain medicines and special chemicals were allowed to pass through the tubes,so as to reduce their swelling and to make them regain their original form.
“In medical terminology,this process is called a reversal or re-canalisation operation. The process of opening the fallopian tube is performed through a micro-surgery”,the medical expert said.
Uma’s husband Sanjay,who runs a small provision store in a small village around 115 kms from here,said over phone that he and his wife were extremely overjoyed to be able to have a child again.
