  • it veries for everyone. i was not up to par for a week, but that was ok since hubby took over for me. I am sure that if i had too i would have been able to handle normal life ok.

  • i had mine done the day after i delivered this last baby... i got to say (given birth a total of 4 times-vaginally) the recovery FOR ME was worse than birth recovery altogether... i HAD to take the pain meds for about 3-4 days after the surgery BUT still was able to care for my NB, almost 2yr old, almost 4yr old AND almost 6yr old.... i would have your hubby take a couple days off IF HE CAN... or at least have someone to help out w the baby for a couple days.. DEF ask for prescription pain med.
