Life after LAVA

I had my surgery (LAVA) on the 28 and after 2 nights came home (yesterday). It was very helpful for me to read tips for the pre-op and I thanked logging in just the night before.
Most of the women who share their experiences had TAH TVH. Is anyone who had LAVA have any tips?? I basically had 2 small incisions on the side and one just under my belly button.
I still struggle with bloating and not being able to pass gas it acts like a bubble in a closed room bouncing all over.
I am not so sure what is the extent of recovery (my head is ready to be at work one nim and back in the hospital the other...) what I should do or not (Dr. was vague for my lifestyle)
My body didn't read the instructions on the percocet
So I am more restless and even though I am in bad. I am still on the go. I know hat I need to rest and was told to sleep. (easy for them to say).
Thanks for your feedback.

You need to rest, rest some more and then rest again. Take the next few weeks to yourself and allow yourself to stop. I was back to work in two weeks and really wish I had not done that.
