Random ovulation after age 55??

I am a 56 yr old healthy female with a question regarding ovulation. At
age 55 I had a uterine ablation because of heavy periods and some fibroids and polyps. All went well with that and my periods stopped all
together. My gyn tested me (per my request) to be sure that my ovaries were "dryed up" and I no longer would need to worry about pregnancy. I certainly did not want to be that one case in a million! Well, my husband and I have enjoyed the freedom of not having to stop and put on the "raincoat" as we call it over the last 18 months or so. My question is...2 wks ago I noticed that old familiar "egg white" jelly discharge and thought about it the next day after we had unprotected sex that night. I laughed it off, but a week later my breast began to be very tender and sore....now, please tell me there is no way I could possibly be pregnant right??? Can a woman ovulate randomly like that and conceive at my age???
