How was your Open Liver Resection Experience

I'm sceduled next month to have a liver resection due to a large tumor inside my liver that continues to grow due to hormones. I'm very nervous as I have never had surgery before, I have children to care for so I'm a little nervous about that too. Please share your whole experience with having one such as

1. How you felt after surgery far as pain?
2. When discharged from hospital did you need someone to care for you and if so how long?
3. When could you return to work, driving, caring for your family or any other activities of daily living?
4.After surgery how was it after getting staples removed?
5. How long for full recovery inside and outside?
