Lots of causes: Any type of operation, even when perfectly performed, is a stressful period. And when you combine that with the discomfort of menstruation, the combination can be particularly difficult. Menstruation is commonly associated with muscle cramps and spasms which add on to surgical pain. Talk with your surgeon to find out whether your symptoms are within the normal range or not.

Should Not Be: Removing the tube should not affect pain unless there is scar tissue that formed due to surgery. There may be another reason entirely: infection, endometriosis, fibroids, etc so it is worth seeing your doctor or a specialist to figure out why you are in pain.

Post-op recovery: Depending on when you had the surgery, it does take a few weeks and perhaps a cycle or 2 before you feel better. If you've been having painful menses consistently, it could be due to some other pathology such as endometriosis, which your doctor could have seen if present during surgery. You need to discuss with your doctor.

See doctor: It depends on when you had your surgery. Immediately after pelvic surgery the period may be a little heavier or more painful. If your surgery was a few months ago then there may be another reason such as infection.

Depends: Much of the answer depends on the reason for the surgery. For example, a common reason to remove a tube is for an ectopic pregnancy. This can result in adhesions and scarring that can cause pain. Also, if you were on the pill prior to the surgery and stopped it, that may be the reason for a resumption of painful periods. The pill was responsible for minimizing the pain before stopping it.

Pain after surgery: If you are right after surgery and is gradually getting better it is ok. If it has been months it is not ok. Sometimes in rare cases tubal surgery is associated with severe pelvic pain postop that does not get better with time. In that case the recommended treatment is hysterectomy. But that is a rare event.
