    I had my tubes tied 3 years ago with my c section. Since then have horrible cramping in my pelvic,down my legs and in my back. I have moods swings and and got post partum depression after this surgery. I have recently found out i have endometriosis. Is this from getting my tubes tied. If so if i have them untied will it help with this pain and everything else that has happen in these 3 years? I am in such pain 3 weeks out of the month. Will insurance cover it or at least some do to the extreme pain i am in.
