Has anyone had bad cramping after getting their tubes tied?

Gave birth to my youngest son in April & I just got my tubes tied, but I'm having alot of pain in my lower abdomen. I spoke with my Dr. about it & she says it's normal but these cramps are bad as if they're menstrual cramps. Has anyone had this happen to them ?

Sadly enough, they don't tell you EVERYTHING that will change when you get your tubes tied! I had mine done in 2005 and I have never experienced such pain and discomfort in all my years of menstrauting. A year after the surgery I still wasn't up to my full physical capacity and once in a while, I still feel a pull here and there.

I would receommend a sonogram, only because sometimes the gas (air?) they use to do the surgery gets into little pockets in your body and cause alot of discomfort. You may also need to change your diet a bit, less gassy foods, eat activia yogurt and exercise a bit more.

Check out some of the medical sites, they also have some great advice. Good luck!
