Will removing tube decrease blood flow to ovary?

Dr. Smith,
I'm not sure if you or Dr. Jacobs would like to answer my question so I will post to both of you:
Two years ago, I took a Clomid Challenge Test that gave me a large cyst in my ovary that needed to be removed surgically. Ovary saved. It was an endo cyst that spread to my tube so the tube was also removed. I also had fibroids removed. My left tube was functioning fine an no endo at surgery time. Now I find out that scar tissue and adhesions have ruined the tube left. There is scar tissue at both ends of the tube and it is going into the uterus where it is attached to the tube. Also more fibroids are back. My current RE is saying it is best to take the tube because once he gets rid of the scar tissue where the tube connects to the uterus, if the tube stays, the scar tissue could come back and will be much more difficult to work on.

I agree with him. But the last time that we talked, he said that removing the tube will give me less blood flow to the ovary. When we met for preop, I brought up that i would like the tube clipped off and sealed that way to my blood flow to the ovary will not decrease. Now he is saying it wont decrease the blood flow that much. He said it will not affect the main artery going to the ovary.

Will removing the tube cause a decrease in blood flow to the ovary? Will it be significant?
