Hysterectomy board

I had my laproscopic hysterectomy on November 29th. The surgery went well and I felt pretty good when I left the hospital on 11/30. I was home by 11am and only took a few pain pills - about five total. I have only been taking Tylenol since Friday, 12/1. The gas pains weren't too bad for me - I passed a lot of it on Thursday and Friday. I haven't had a bowel movement yet, but hopefully that will happen soon. I see my doctor on Tuesday, 12/5 for a follow-up visit, but I'm feeling great.
I hardly had any pain whatsoever, so probably on a scale of 1 to 10 (with one being the easiest and 10 the worst), it was probably a 3-4. They gave me vicodin for the pain and I only took one pill each time. I think I had 3 in the hospital (I stayed overnight) and then 3 my first day home and only 1 my second day home. And then I just took tylenol for the pain (which was minimal). Good luck to you - let me know if you have any other questions.
