My wife had LSH a little over a year ago. The doctor didn't give her any option on the anesthesia and she was put out completely. She went in early Monday morning and I drove her home Monday afternoon. She had a little gas pain but it wasn't bad, according to her, and regular over the counter medication took care of that. The doctor did give her a prescription for pain meds and she took those, about half the full amount she was told she could take, for the following two days. By Wednesday afternoon she was getting by using regular Tylenol.
