Excessive Bleeding After Tubal Ligation

I had a tubal ligation 10 days ago.  I am experiencing heavy bleeding which may be the early onset of my period (the bleeding began about 10 days prior to expected period begin date).  However the amount of the bleeding seems very unsual to me .. I am not in severe pain but any lifting of my toddler for more than a short time has caused sharp abdominal pains, etc. and wears me out. I have since stopped doing that!  However I am now bloated and bleeding bleeding bleeding.  It seems to "pool" so that when I sit down in the bathroom I get a very large amount "rushing" out at once .... my periods, while heavy prior to surgery, never were like this, pooling, etc.  Is this normal??   Post-surgery I had several days of dark spotting but it slowly turned into this current active heavy bleeding.  No fever, no nausea.  This is only day 4 of the heavy bleeding.  Should I be concerned?

I had a tubal 9 years ago after my 4th C-section.  After I would have one day of heavy bleeding and then I would have a nasty brown discharge for about 2-3 weeks straight and then it was time for my period again.  My doctor then did a D&C and a thermal ablation to try to stop this.  It helped somewhat but I still have the discharge of old blood off and on for about 2 plus weeks.  Makes it difficult for my partner and I.  No odor just discharge.
