LindaSue, Re post op pain, as you know thresholds vary but each doctor/hospital will do their best to make you comfortable. I was very afraid of the post op pain but thankfully found the discomfort rather minor. The pain meds (used the self administering pain pump for the first two days) and later the pills apparently really worked well . Do not hesitate to ask for a different medication if the one(s) you are given are not working well for you.
As others have said, tummy pillows are a necessity. You may also want to ask your doctor/surgeon if you can use a tummy binder. I would not go anywhere without mine and began using it when on the move as of 3rd day post up; it gives added support and one feels less like your insides are going to fall out (don't worry they won't.) One can adjust the binders as loose or tight as is comfortable. If you have staples - I only had steri-strips on my vertical incision from day one- you may have to hold off using a binder until they are removed as the binder may pinch - but can ask the nurses or your doctor for their recommendation re this.
My ers are with your for a complications free surgery and recovery. s peggiesue
