It sounds like you are still grappling with endometrosis or it's complications. Sometimes, surgery alone (ablation as in your case)is not enough to clear endometrosis.
You may need adjuvant medication / hormone therapy. This is am option you could explore with your health care provider.
Adhesions caused by endometrosis could result in intermittent abdominal pain and constipation.
Even where treatment has been excellent (as it may well have been in your case), recurrence of endometrosis is common, and up to 1 in every four women who had their endometrosis treated completely could have it coming back again!
The key here is loads of patience, and work closely with your doctor to get things under control.
