Although a post-tubal ligation syndrome has been reported with pain and/or abnormal periods following tubal ligation, most doubt that it is a real condition. Tubal reversal can restore your fertility but I wouldn’t expect it to relieve your pain. However, other potential causes of pain, such as endometriosis or scar tissue, may be diagnosed and treated at the time of the tubal reversal.
