Brief Answer:
Don't use tampons

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for trusting health care magic.
I understand your health concerns and anxiety about it.

No, you should not use tampons after any pelvic surgery and seeing the history of endometriosis you should not use tampons at all.
They hinder with the flow and thus can increase retrograde flow from uterus to Fallopian tubes and then into the peritoneum especially in cases with heavy flow.

Wish you a speedy recovery.

Regards
Dr Manisha
