Everything went well after the surgery I was in a little pain went home the same day. What bothered me the most were the two drain tubes that has to stay in for a week. The doctor placed on to close to my grond area and every time I moved my leg I got Sharp needle pain in my lower leg and vagina area. Its best to keep on your belly band because you will have a hard time coughing even breathing without it I will keep mine on for a least 3-4mths. The skin is pulled so tight that I had a hard time eating and the gas and bowl movements were pretty bad so make sure u have a stool softner to help. If I didn't take the pain medication I would feel numbness in the cut area. I will stay home for 2 weeks just to be safe. I do light house work like wash clothes and dishes, but the key is that u have to move around no matter how much pain ur in the sooner the better. While my tubes are In I will take a shower every 2 days other than they ill just wash up. I sleep on my back just so that my body will equally drain the fluid. After the tubes comes out ill sleep on my side. Hope this info. Helps.
