There will be so much damage done to the tube that you most likely will not get pregnant just by having the clamps removed.

Reversal of tubal clamps will provide you with an excellent chance of pregnancy success. But conception does largely depend on your age, ovarian reserve, etc. So, based on that, you should consult with a fertility specialist and get tested/examined to determine your individual chances of getting pregnant after the procedure.
