Customer Question

I received my MRI results and it notes that the left adnexal tubo-ovarian complex contains a hydrosalpinx inseparable from the morphologically normal appearing left ovary. Can you explain what this is and what I can do to get rid of the hydrosalpinx?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I had a trachelectomy procedure and lymph node dissection in Jan for my stage 1b1 cervical cancer. I am clear.

After PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) resolves, the damaged fallopian tube can become blocked, fill with sterile fluid, and become enlarged. Damage to the fallopian tube from previous surgery or adhesions can also result in hydrosalpinx.

Hydrosalpinx may be associated with pain or may be asymptomatic except for tubal factor infertility.
