I think it is always important to listen to your body and never feel stupid if things don't feel right.

Even if the tube and ovary was removed if this was due to endometriosis you can still get recurrence at the same site. The endometriosis may involve some small deposits of recurrence on the side wall of the pelvis which can lead to significant pain and discomfort. The risk of recurrence may be increased if for example the contents of an endometriosis cyst was spilled during the procedure. Unfortunately, with any surgery there is also a risk of scar formation which can cause pain.

I would recommend further investigations with a pelvic ultrasound scan and clinical examination with your doctor, ideally someone who also has access to the notes from your most recent surgery.
