    Please, don't ever take 4 Ibuprofen at any one time, the dosage is 2, if you are in pain you can take 1 Ibuprofen with 2 paracetamol, hopefully you will be lucky like me and not experience pain at all, have plenty of good books/magazines to read, if you get a bit constipated have some stool softener, I used a small spoon of softener and 1 senna tablet each evening which helped greatly, fortunately it was need for long.

    Hi Nitza, at home? Paracetamol and ibuprofen. A chair next to the bed to help pull yourself up. Fresh fruit and vegetables. Soup if not feeling hungry. Peppermint tea if you have wind. A freshly changed bed and tidy house ♥️

    A small step, like toddlers use to reach the wash hand basin, to raise your knees into a squatting position, when on the loo! In the UK I used Movecol, two sachets a day for six weeks, really worked. Now I have flaxseed every day on my breakfast cereal, with yoghurt and fruit, to ensure I don't get constipated!

    Oh the joys. 😳

    What type are you having?  Abdominal or robotic?

    I also spoke to lots of women who suggested all sorts of great at home products and then never needed any of them.

    One of the best things I had which I found invaluable was a Grabber for picking things up or hard to reach., as you must avoid bending and stretching. Good luck x
