IVF & assisted conceptions

This is my first time ever on a forum / site of this kind, so not sure on the right way to begin / question asking, so here goes!
My husband and I were TTC for a year, but when I did my test the HSG ( I think) showed that my fallopian tubes were blocked. It turns out I have distal blockage, and the doctor told me that as they were full of liquid they'd have to make a small incision to remove the liquid.
I went to the surgery today for a pre-op consultation, and they said that they actually recommend removing both tubes completely, meaning I'll only ever be able to conceive through IVF.
She explained the reasons to me (IVF has 50% better rate of working when tubes aren't there due to the toxic nature of fluid), but a part of me is concerned about how final this is.
Has anyone out there had both their tubes removed? Or had a distal blockage that was unblocked?

I also was given the option of removal of tubes. I only have one and the one I do have is completely fused so they were worried that IVF would end with a ectopic pregnancy. I chose not to have it removed on the very slight chance that natural pregnancy might occur. It is such a hard decision to make. Good luck.
