On-Q painbuster - anyone get this post-op?

Hi everyone, I don't know any of the prefixes and what they indicate. I had my uterus removed three days ago. It was huge and messy (about 5-6 months) but my ovaries and cervix were okay and left in. But he said he had to do some repair work in there and hence I've a lot more pain that I'd anticipated.

My question deals with the On-Q (on-cue?) system that they put on me post-op. It's giving me novacaine or lidocaine, I think. The surgery was on Thursday and I'm supposed to remove it today (Sunday). Has anyone had this and has anyone removed it? Have there been any surprises? What should I expect? They seemed very casual about it and told me to just pull it out slowly and then put a gauze bandage on it until it dries. It's apparently in my fatty tissue so I shouldn't expect a whole lot of bleeding and that the inserted tube is very small.

I just wanted to find out if anyone has had this in and has pulled it out and what happened afterward. Should I expect a lot more pain afterward? I'd be very grateful for any advice or suggestions or warnings. Thank you so very very much.
