Pregnancy after Fallopian tubes removed

Hello- I had my tubes removed a year ago (total bilateral salpingectomy) and I am now 13 weeks pregnant. I’ve scoured medical journals looking for info on this but have only turned up 4 known cases globally. Has anyone heard about this? Failure rates maybe? Anything?

omg, well . . . SURPRISE!  Geez. So, I have heard that when tubes are severed, that the scar tissue and what not can fuse back together making a 'sort of' tube that can work enough for women to get pregnant. This is what happens when a woman her tubes tied (called tied but they also sever them) as well as when they DO use clips, they can become unclipped.  You had your tubes completely removed? Did you have a salpingectomy? That is full removal of tubes.  If you had both tubes removed, wow, you should NOT have any way of getting pregnant. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/treatments/21879-salpingectomy  I think you need an explanation from your surgeon as that is amazing! Something isn't right.
