I'd say the chances of pregnancy are quite slim but since I don't know what procedure was used when you had your surgery I can't say for sure. Most of the time the ends are cut and closed off with a piece removed to further assure the ends will not grow back together. If there is failure it is typically in the first year or so following the procedure but there are exceptions of course.
Chances are you are just experiencing some hormonal fluctuation, missed ovulation or other normal activity. If the periods don't resume next month or you have symptoms you could get a pregnancy test and/or see your doctor.
