First period after endometrial ablation...

I had microwave endometrial ablation about 4 weeks ago. Pain and bleeding from op finally stopped last week but tonight I am doubled up with stomach cramps. It feels like my period is about to come on (pain in tummy, legs and back passage - sorry for TMI)but can't. Is this normal? Gynae told me op would stop killer periods, not had pain like this in years. Really want a hot bath but was told no baths for 6 weeks post op

I would get checked out incase of infection.

I do remember feeling like my body was trying to expell something and couldn't. It settled down after a few months.

I am three years on now and have no pain or loss, just PMT.

I don't remember being told not to bath.

Thanks. Have started bleeding now and pain & pressure has eased.

Just checked leaflet again and it says no sex and no hot baths for 6 weeks post op. Not sure why though
