what should i be doing at 3 wks post op

Hi, please excuse any mistakes in medical terms (I am German). My LAVH was on January 8, the kept me in hospital for 7 days (routine) and I feel good. I feel "there is something happening inside" but it is not pain, more a sort of "it is healing" feeling,. That makes it difficult for me to keep quiet and take it easy. I do move around the house and cook quick meals. I even join my husband when he does the shopping. But I agree - my body tells me immediately if I have done too much, because I get tired and exhausted quickly when I move too much.
