Tubal Ligation

I just had our 3rd child at the beginning of March. I reluctantly chose to tie my tubes. I previously had the Mirena in for almost 5 years which ended in a 2 hour surgery that should have only lasted 15 minutes to have it removed. So I was dead set on not going back on any sort of birth control because my experience on the Mirena was not an enjoyable one. I heard more bad stories about having a tubal than positive ones. But I chose to go ahead because I was having a repeat c-section and they would already be in there along with no extra cost like it would be if my husband went in. I have mood swings out of nowhere (like the Mirena), weird discharge (like the Mirena), and now I've started having very sharp pains on my left side when my ovary/tube is. I'm breastfeeding so I have not had my first period yet. Absolutely dreading that one because I hear they're awful and heavy after a tubal. Anyone else going through this? I've already been searching about reversal which I'm sure is not covered by insurance which is just great. I wish I would have stuck to my guns and made my husband go...
