Dear Aud82,
I am so sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy and loss,
The doctors may have a better idea of what surgery you had from your discharge summary letter.
If this isn't clear, I would advise speaking to the Patient Advice Liaison Service (PALS) at your local hospital who will be able to access your hospital notes and advise you accordingly.
We have more information on the types of surgery here.

Dear Aud82,
When we experience ectopic pregnancy we are suddenly faced with a life threatening emergency and it's treatment, reduction in fertility, concerns about the future and the loss of our babies. Experiencing any one of these is an ordeal, putting them together is immense and your feelings are completely normal.
Please be kind to yourself and allow time to grieve, to heal both physically and emotionally.
Sending much love and warm hugs,

Dear Aud82,
I'm sorry to hear that it is affecting your family in this way.
We do have a Men's Space board with some really good posts from men that might help you both understand each others feelings, perhaps you could look at those together.

Whilst your feelings are normal at this stage of recovery, if the bad days start to outweigh the good, we at the Trust believe that talking through what happened and your emotions as and when you can helps the healing process. We operate a helpline service and there's no pressure whatsoever but if you would ever like the opportunity to speak over the phone to someone who has been through a similar experience, do feel free to call, details are below. We can take things at your pace entirely and you are free to ask any questions that are on your mind. You can talk about the ordeal you have been through and express your feelings to vent and let off some steam. We can exchange emails too, if you prefer that route. We'll simply be here for you, however you wish and for as long as you wish.

In addition, you can ask to see a GP at your practice and ask them to explore ways in which you can get help and this can include referrals for "talking therapies" or counselling. We have information on our website about finding counselling services.

The charity Mind may also be of assistance. They have local centres and support groups and can offer services on a means-tested basis or sometimes free. You can find your local centre following this link if that may be useful too: http://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/local-minds/

Sending much love,
